Georgia men's swim and football teams make dueling Harlem Shake videos.

I'm not even going to try to explain what the Harlem Shake is, or why it's caused an epidemic of Dadaist videos on YouTube. Mostly because a) I don't really care enough to explore the origins of this Freudian nightmare-inducing craze, and b) There's really no use in explaining it, it just is.

All you need to know that the craze has hit Athens, Ga., and the University of Georgia men's swim and dive team went the extra yard to go their version by doing it underwater. This may be the most disturbing underwater scene I've seen since The Magic Voyage of Sinbad episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Not to be outdone, the UGA football team decided to make a version of their own to challenge the swim team for Harlem Shake supremacy.

If you're about to make the "Mark Richt has lost control..." joke, don't worry about it. Someone already beat you to it. The scary part, that may be him in the Jaguar hat.
