GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The Cleveland Indians have taken their swing at the "Harlem Shake."
With new manager Terry Francona dressed as a big baby, Jason Giambi unrecognizable in a full-body green suit and Nick Swisher in an Ohio State football uniform, the team filmed their version of the viral video craze earlier this week. The short film begins with Francona addressing his players in the clubhouse before he begins to dance across the floor. Seconds later, the room erupts with players donned in colorful costumes.
The dance is to the song of the same name, with thousands of videos popping up on the Internet in recent months.
The Indians said the video generated over 34,000 page views on the team's blog in under four hours after its release.
