"Harlem Shake" craze crosses the border to Reynosa
Tue, 05 Mar 2013 23:37:35 GMT —
The "Harlem Shake" internet video craze has now moved south of the border.
Reynosa mayoral pre-candidate Jose Ramon Gomez-Leal posted his Harlem Shake video on YouTube on Monday.
The Mexican border city's mayoral election is set to take place in July.
The 35-year-old Tamaulipas state congressman is one of three candidates seeking to be the National Action Party (PAN) candidate for mayor.
On his Facebook page, Gomez-Leal called the video the "JR Shake" stylizing the video after his first two initials.
But Gomez-Leal's video is not the first "Harlem Shake" video in the region.
The on-line video craze swept the Rio Grande Valley over the past month.
The student-run television station Bronc TV sponsored their Harlem Shake video on the UTPA campus last month.
Harlingen-based Liberty Tax Service produced a series of Harlem Shake videos on their YouTube page last week.
