President Leslie E. Wong shakes it with hundreds of students for Harlem Shake video shoot


SF State students jumped into the Harlem Shake for a second time in an attempt to outdo the trending videos flooding the internet — but this time they were joined by President Leslie E. Wong.

Hundreds of students gathered at Malcolm X Plaza on the SF State campus at 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22 to shake their stuff. On Feb. 16, The Swamp, published a blog post challenging the school president to shake it along with students in SF State’s second rendition of the viral video.

President Wong then countered the challenge with one of his own and after the trending hashtag #ShakeItWong received more than 100 tweets, President Wong stayed true to his word and shook it — on camera.
