Violated safety standards

Not everybody's thrilled with the Harlem Shake, apparently.

Days after airplane passengers' rendition of the popular dance craze sparked an FAA investigation, up to 15 Australian miners have now been fired from their high-paying jobs after performing the Harlem Shake underground.

Per The West Australian, Aussie mining company Barminco sacked the workers after a video was uploaded to YouTube showing at least eight miners dancing wildly at the Agnew gold mine in violation of apparent safety standards.
