The Miami Heat players are quite the comedians! They’ve jumped on the ‘Harlem Shake’ craze and released their own version of the viral video. Watch!

Chris “Birdman” Anderson starts the Miami Heat video by dancing around the locker room, flailing his arms like a bird. His teammates are seen stretching or sitting by their lockers. Suddenly, as in all “Harlem Shake” videos, the camera cuts to the entire team dancing in costume! This is a video that must be seen!

In the hilarious clip, Mario Chalmers dressed as Super Mario, LeBron James dressed up like a king, Chris wore a bird ensemble — he is the “birdman,” Dwyane Wade wore a bear head, and Ray Allen had a “Phantom of the Opera” type mask on.

The video, which has now gone viral itself, was posted on February 28. As of March 2, the video already has 11 million views!

“It’s a long season, man,” Dwayne told the Miami Herald. “For us, it was just trying to enjoy the process. It’s going to be go time soon, and then we’re not going to be able to do anything.”

Shane Battier, dressed liked a horse-astronaut in the video said, “I had a very subtle role. I was in the background, which is my sort of humor. You have to look hard to see me. Whenever I’m tabbed for something like that, I go for the horse head. The horse head is my go-to move. It’s undefeated. It has won every time.”

“In life u gotta figure out how to have fun and enjoy it. Hope y’all enjoy,” Mario wrote on Twitter.

There’s no doubt that performing the “Harlem Shake” is fun. In fact, created their own “Harlem Shake” video in celebration of Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday! On top of wearing wacky costumes, our entire staff donned Justin masks.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you a fan of the “Harlem Shake”?
