Thirty Seconds of Fun Cost 15 Miners Their Jobs [VIDEO]

15 guys who were part of an overnight crew working at the Agnew Mine in Australia were fired after they made a “Harlem Shake” video in the underground mine and posted it online.

The mining services company that employed the workers Barminco, hasn’t made a statement but a spokesman for the company that owns the mine said, “Underground mining has strict safety standards as there are accidents and fatalities. The Barminco management saw this as a breach of standards.”

Apparently all the miners involved were wearing helmets, lamps, and glasses and had oxygen on hand. The workers believe their only breach of rules was removing their long-sleeve shirts.

The news of the firing comes after the FAA here in the States announced that they’re investigating an incident where an airline allowed university students and passengers to perform the Harlem Shake in the aisles of a plane during a flight.
