This version of the "Harlem Shake" video, called the "ESTEC Shake", was filmed on a real 'electrodynamic shaker', normally used to test spacecraft at the European Space Agency's technical centre, ESTEC, in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. One of the major risks faced by satellites stems from the high vibrations they experience during launch. It is essential to test spacecraft and their components under similar conditions on such shakers to make sure they will survive the violent ride into space.
ESA's Test Centre is the largest centre of its kind in Europe, and one of the largest in the world.

The video was filmed by ESTEC volunteers, in their own time, at zero cost, while the shaker unit was being reconfigured. Strict safety, security and cleanroom procedures were followed during filming.
