Cable’s 10 Best Harlem Shakers
By Amy Maclean

The Harlem Shake may have jumped the shark (after wearing it as a costume, of course), but once you upload that video to the Internet it lives in infamy, people. Yes, we’re talking to you cable executives. We’ve spent hours wasting time investigating YouTube for those Harlem Shake videos you thought you were just sharing with a few friends and co-workers. Here are the top 10, in descending order.

10. Charter Communications
Take a look at the number of green bottles on the conference table. Is that Mountain Dew? That might explain the hyperactivity in the room.

9. MTV India
Anyone else think this guy got Saran Wrapped for starting the Harlem Shake dance?

8. Scripps Networks Detroit Sales & Affiliate Team
We sure hope the man in the green shirt is a cardboard cut-out.

7. Cartoon Network UK
The folks at Cartoon Network UK get extra credit for tying in the brand with the Adventure Time characters.

6. Cisco
OK, seriously Cisco peeps. Do you work on the Starship Enterprise? Jealous of that office space…

We've got to track down the wardrobe person on this one—particularly the genius behind lead dancer Frank Hughes' get up.

4. Discovery Communications
No dinosaurs were harmed in the filming of this video. Hey, is that David Zaslav dressed like a carrot?

3. Comedy Central
So sorry, Jon.

2. National Geographic Channel
Please tell us that’s a “Doomsday Preppers” gas mask.

Drumroll Please…

1. Cable One
The guy in the evening gown sealed the win. But while their Harlem Shake is good, their “I’m Sexy and I Know It” parody is great!

Did we miss any? Let us know!

On behalf of all the CableONE technicians in this video, I would like to say thank you for ranking us #1, John, the brains behind the video, works so hard to make these videos and loves doing it, so please everyone go check out his videos and share them with others on YouTube, just look for the singing cableguy, and if it takes me wearing a dress to help him get his recognition, I\'d gladly do it everytime
