IDF "Harlem Shake" Video Makers Sentenced to Prison!

Two Israel Defense Forces soldiers were sent to military prison for posting a video of soldiers dancing around a cannon on YouTube. Their humorous short clip received a more positive response, however, on the World Wide Web.

The 411th artillery battalion commander took a hard line in an effort to stamp out the practice of soldiers posting videos of themselves on the Internet.



The soldier who produced the video, in which his comrades-in-arms perform a version of the Harlem Shake, was sentenced to 14 days in prison and his commanding officer, who approved the lark, was sentenced to 21 days behind bars and stripped of his command.

The video clip received a generally positive response online not least because it showed IDF soldiers as being more human than the manner in which they often appear in the media, a Maariv report said Sunday.

Soldiers from the battalion who appeared in the video clip said they were surprised at the harsh response, in particular because they were careful to notify their commanders of the project and to get approval that the final product, free of any military sensitive material, could safely be posted online.

Well they made me laugh and I needed a good laugh, hope their time passes quickly. I understand command wanting to make an example but come onnnn. They even asked before they did it? Make an example out of someone acting like an animal, not someone having fun.

This is not the first IDF dance video. IDF gets lots of criticism and so the commanders try very hard to make sure the soldiers don't draw more media attacks. Posting photos to facebook, uploading videos to youtube, unseemly twitter remarks can all get a soldier in very deep trouble with the brass. IDF brass really wants these things to end... in spite of the fact that it's awesomely funny.
