The viral craze of the minute is the "Harlem Shake." A local sports team is not taking the internet sensation and using it for a good cause.

This version of the "Harlem Shake" was made by the Buffalo Bandits. It aired during last Friday's home game as part of the team's "Black Out Cancer" campaign benefiting the American Cancer Society's Coaches vs. Cancer Initiative.

The pink and black jerseys worn in the video will be worn by each player during the first half of the Bandits' March 23rd home game.

Those who are interested can visit Bandits.com and bid on each jersey. Winning bidders will have the opportunity to have a loved ones name embroidered into the back number of the jersey the player wears as a way to honor or remember a special person that was affected by cancer.
