Anyone who knows me knows that my life revolves around three things: Miami, being a pingu and los focking Miami Heat! I've loved the Heat since the day Rory Sparrow sunk the franchise's basket in the Miami Arena against the LA Clippers over two decades ago.

Recently, there has been an Internet video craze going around called the "Harlem Shake." It hasn't yet reached the point of sapingeria yet and is much more pingu than planking because it involves la jodedera y el basilon to tremendo Trap-esque beat.

With the growing number of Harlem Shake videos popping up on YouTube, there has not been one done by the fans of a sports franchise that shows the loyalty and dedication they have to their team. I plan to change that this weekend!

I have organized a Heat Nation Harlem Shake video to be filmed on Sunday at 2 p.m. sharp (no Cuban time, coño) in front of the American Airlines Arena. This is a kid-friendly event, which means you don't have to worry about exposed pechugas and mountains of perico being flung around. Rather, just a chance to show the world that the Heat Nation is a force to be reckoned with. Shooting should take no more than 30 minutes y repito, WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 2 P.M.

I have been contacted by several news stations already about broadcasting the video, and I will be sending it to every Miami pingu in entertainment I know. So please join me, the Escoria Films family, and your fellow Heat Nation pingus, and show the NBA in the world que con Miami, no puede NADIE!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!
