Watch and Listen as the Harlem Globetrotters Team Up With STOMP
Turning 90 is a milestone that deserves a party—even when you're a cultural icon like the Harlem Globetrotters. The beloved basketball squad has reached the nine-decade mark, and to celebrate, four Globetrotters teamed up with eight STOMP performers for an energizing, toe-tapping music video.
The video, filmed on a New York City basketball court using gyroscopic, motion-stabilizing cameras, was captured in a single take, which proved to be a bit of a challenge in a neighborhood full of sirens and curious schoolchildren. After seven attempts, they got their perfect take.
Though they came from different worlds, the dancers and basketball players were mutually impressed. Globetrotter Brawley “Cheese” Chisolm told the Associated Press that he was pleasantly surprised by the success of the collaboration. “It’s like 50-50,” he said. “They’re actually really talented, and so are we.”
