Well, here it is, “Supernatural” fans — the video of Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and the rest of the “Supernatural” crew, including the Impala, doing the Harlem Shake, as promised.
While filming episode 819, “Taxi Driver,” directed by Guy Bee, the “Supernatural” guys took a time-out from the on-screen angst for a behind the scenes to participate in the rampant internet meme created by Baauer’s song “Harlem Shake.” Teasing, Padalecki tweeted, “Well, doin’ a Harlem Shake…. And, yes, there is a camera rolling… Great…” and once the bosses signed off, he posted the vid.
Though Padalecki is known for his on-set antics, word is that this particular video was actually Ackles’ idea.
The song went viral this year thanks to a whole lot of people posting 30-second videos of themselves in various odd costumes, dancing to the first part of Baauer’s song. Unfortunately, the “Supernatural” crew may be a little too late with this one. The meme has, apparently, been declared dead… it seems that once Al Roker puts on a cupid costume, the cool factor is murdered.
That said, a lot of things come back from the dead on “Supernatural.”
