'Harlem Shake' Miami Videos: Does Pepe Billete Do It Best?

Posted: Updated:

Every city in America has done the viral dance craze 'Harlem Shake' by now -- but how many have filmed it led by a Cuban puppet?

Pepe Billete -- Miami's own felt-covered, cigar-chomping, Spanglish-speaking puppet uncle -- called his pals to AmericanAirlines Arena Sunday afternoon to film a 305 version of the irrepressible meme, which naturally was renamed the "Haslem Shake" for extra Dade flavor.

In the crowd: booty bass maestro Otto Von Schirach, a Cleopatra wig, a kid in a really fabulous cat t-shirt (call us!), and about 200 Heat fans going nuts. In other words, it looked like a cross between a pre-game crowd, a night at Ultra Music Festival, and any random Tuesday on Biscayne Boulevard.

But did Billete do it best? We've compiled a handful of the best Miami versions of the Harlem Shake, including clips from a local rowing club, high school chorus, the LIV nightclub offices, kids in Hialeah, the University of Miami, and even those Canadian sisters filmed dancing in the Miami Beach Police offices.

Check 'em out and let us know which one's your favorite:
