Dancing Mayor Tells the Rochester Hills Story
Mayor Bryan Barnett performs the Harlem Shake on the big screen at Emagine Theatre — but his staff has work to do.
"We have a great story to tell — but how to tell it?"
That was the question Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett asked at the start of his 2013 State of the City Address.
The crowd watched a larger-than-life video clip of Barnett performing the dance. While the Harlem Shake usually ends with a mass of people joining the solo performer in the dance, this time, Barnett's staff stood, studious, all around him as one worker, media technician Jason Dale, held up a sign declaring "I have work to do."
