The Harlem Shake went down…under. But it didn’t end well for a group of Australian gold miners who were fired for taking the dance craze underground. Fifteen workers at the Agnew Gold Mine were fired after their dirty, sweaty version of the Harlem Shake was posted online and went viral. Mine owner Barminco fired the men, who all earn six-figure salaries, for breaching its “core values of safety, integrity and excellence”.  They’ve also been blacklisted from working at any Barminco sites across the world. The workers said they think their bosses were being heavy-handed with the punishment.
