WATCH: The Palm Serves Up the 'Harlem Shake'

The waiters at The Palm in East Hampton put together their own version of the Harlem Shake meme.

The Palm may be a no brainer for fine dining, but who knew the servers were having so much fun?

The wait staff at The Palm in East Hampton put together a "Harlem Shake" video, a video dance craze that's gone viral.

The meme starts with one dancer rocking to the music all on his lonesome — in this case, a server wearing a mask in The Palm's kitchen and dining room— while the people around him are seemingly oblivious. About 15 seconds in, they all start dancing in a frenzy.

While some "Harlem Shake" videos include silly costumes, risqué dance moves, and a lot of props, this one doesn't feature much except waiter's jackets, some napkins to cover their faces, and The Palm's take out bags.

Some videos are bringing in serious hits. Members of the Rocky Point Fire Department did one that has over 5.3 million views. Others done nearby include:

  • Suffolk County Community College in Riverhead
  • Dan's Papers
  • Southampton High School,
  • The Ross School
  • Southampton Historical Museum
  • The Hampton Bays Fire Department
  • Long Island Aquarium Does the 'Harlem Shake'
