Our staff have been cooped up in the office sorting your motor trade insurance for years – so we should have expected such a level of insanity to be displayed in their Harlem Shake video.
Unicom Insurance always get involved with bonkers charity campaigns and this has got to be amongst the most random things we’ve ever done.
You can jump straight to the video here or read a bit more about it first.

In true Harlem Shake style, the video begins with a sole nutter, dancing in the centre of the room while everybody else acts casual. The person who kickstarts the cuckoo in our video, dons a full rally driving outfit akin to the Top Gear Stig. We’re not even sure who was behind the visor…for all we know, it could well have been the Stig himself.
When the beat drops…
So, as expected now when watching a Harlem Shake video, the bass comes in and everything goes mental. A collection of Unicom brokers dressed as Where’s Wally characters come out of nowhere and their performance is pretty awesome (and worrying).
Why on earth did we do it?
We didn’t just want to give our staff five minutes off work – it was all done for Comic Relief and we’re already looking at ways to better it next year.
It was part of a charity day in the office and we managed to raise over £550 from doing it. It took 18 Unicom employees to create the craziness and was a very different way to end the week.
The money will go towards helping underprivileged families in the UK and abroad improve their living conditions. We’ll be doing something weird again in November for Children in Need, so watch this space.
Some more Harlem Shakes we’re loving in the office:
- The Norwegian Army is currently leading the view count for Harlem Shakes on YouTube and to be honest, it’s little wonder why. We think the guys wriggling in the sleeping bags (could easily be body bags) are the main draw. Watch it here.
- The Red Bull Skydiving Shake is pretty strong. There’s no way we could compete with a dancing shark in freefall. You can see the video here.
- Ball State University Swim and Dive – Harlem Shaking in the campus swimming pool is one thing, riding a bike underwater is another. You have to see it to believe it – amazing work by these guys across the pond. Click here to view the video.
