It all started with a single Racker in a motorcycle helmet getting down at his desk with a back-and-forth dance groove.

Then the bass dropped.

Rackspace posted it's own "Racker Edition" of the new YouTube phenomenon known as the Harlem Shake. All the videos generally start out the same, with one person dancing alone to Baauer's now popular party track. Then all hell breaks loose.

WATCH: 

About 15 seconds into "Harlem Shake v1.2 (Racker Edition)," things get really weird -- although it's probably pretty normal for the Rackspace day-to-day.

There's really so much going on in the video that a new gem can be discovered with every replay. Here's a breakdown of some of our favorite dancers and dance moves. Can you spot them all?

  • Frog woman goes bonkers on her desk
  • Pink-hatted cowboy rodeos a killer whale
  • Leapfrogger manages to keep a parking cone on head
  • Trophy winner demonstrates a powerful victory pump
  • Darth Vader appears to be wearing bunny ears
  • Guy in a red shirt executes perfect gym class burpees
  • Another pink-hatted cowboy works the alternating fist pump
  • Guy in the gray shirt...
  • Even a rogue hockey stick gets in on the action

OK, Rackers. Now get back to work!

As of Wednesday, the video has "racked" up 171,000 views. The original Harlem Shake meme has drawn nearly 3.5 million views since it was posted on Feb 2, 2013.


The Lewallen family, of San Antonio, also got in on the Harlem Shake action. The "Lewallen Family Style" video was posted on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013.
