ST. LEO (FOX 13) -

On the field, the Saint Leo University Lions are all about taking care of business.

"We're just worried about keeping wining baseball games," said head coach Sean O'Connor.

But something really strange happens to them when a certain beat drops. Yes, the team is busting out the Harlem Shake! It's the viral video craze taking over You Tube.

The players shot the video after practice on Monday. It is the brain child of junior Michael Callahan.

"I think it is just another fun thing for You Tube browsers and it is a lot of fun for everyone doing it," Callahan said.

Believe it or not, thousands of "Harlem Shake" videos are said to be uploaded every day to You Tube.

Here's the basic formula: one guy is typically dancing around with a mask in a roomful of oblivious people.

Then when the beat drops on Baauer's Harlem Shake, everyone goes crazy.

Saint Leo's video has spread like wildfire.

"I was hoping we'd get a little over 100 views and then now we're almost over 100,000," said senior Pitcher Ryan Sadler. "I think it is great publicity for St. Leo and it is great for our team, built a little chemistry and I think it's a great video overall," Sadler said.

It has become the talk on campus.

"People are watching it on their phones like, ‘oh my God there's the Red Power Ranger, it is crazy," Callahan said.

Even the head coach got in there.

"It was a fun idea it was something we did as a team and they enjoyed it. I was ok with it, it was great," O'Connor joked.
