The Harlem Shake Redux

Genevieve Morton and Natasha Barnard find redemption after original Harlem Shake fail

About two weeks ago, I got an email from SI Swimsuit model Genevieve Morton, which said, “Hey Andy. So Natasha [Barnard] and I were just talking about how we had no idea what the Harlem shake was when we did the video, and were thinking it could be a fun idea to do another little one to redeem ourselves hahaha. Let me know your thoughts.”

My thoughts were that this idea was tremendous (especially if you’ve seen the original video) and we should make it happen. Four days later, the two South African beauties were in the studio shooting the new video. I think they certainly redeemed themselves with this second effort. Do you agree?

It took about 2.5 hours to shoot that one-minute video. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot.

Quite honestly whoever put that scheme together badly needs some writing lessons from Eli Wallach, The Holiday, Winslet, Diaz, Black, I am not surprised they were tangled girls, but then it was Las Vegas with the leaky water reservoir. It takes a lot to stand off the situation in publicity, we met San Diego at Urrard with some horses and even there in comparative relaxation in the pouring rain the polite behaviour had to be honoured although they were all three very kind in the riding demonstrations. I found one had to stand to all the time in Lectures and was glad of the time ATC and School discipline to stand it out, as I said in 1979, if you expect the students to do the work exercise firstly you have to be able to do it yourself, trouble is they did it better! Mind you the crew doing that act might be too much even for modern social publicity, so perhaps we shall not go there. Nice rhino' pic on Natasha's site.
