The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the recording that shows members of a Colorado college Ultimate Frisbee team doing the dance. Recorded on Feb. 15, the video has been viewed more than 430,000 times on YouTube and is one of the countless versions of the viral video meme that exploded earlier this month.
In them, groups of people dance in a silly fashion to a song, appropriately called "Harlem Shake."
The FAA is involved "to make sure no federal regulations were violated," agency spokesperson Allen Kenitzer said. The investigation will include interviewing flight crew and passengers.
Frontier wouldn't comment specifically on the FAA probe, but, regarding the dance, spokesperson Kate O'Malley said: "All safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off."
There's little wonder why the crew was OK with the in-flight video: Employees killing time on a layover recorded their own version days earlier.
Though various culture critics have called for its demise, the Harlem Shake meme clearly still has wings.
