Bank Distances Itself From ‘Harlem Shake’ Video

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Wells Fargo bank officials say a viral video filmed inside an Atlanta bank branch was not approved or produced by the company, and employees participated on their own time.

The video, one of many depicting the “Harlem Shake,” features characters dancing in the lobby of a Wells Fargo branch. One wears a diaper and has a pacifier, and another is dressed in a beer can outfit. The video has nearly 150,000 views on YouTube.

Officials say the video by Atlanta actors Emmanuel and Phillip Hudson was filmed at a Lenox Road branch in the city’s Buckhead area.

A spokesman for the Hudsons’ management company, Archive Entertainment, said the video involved about a dozen people and took about an hour to make after the bank closed March 8.
