A few more last hurrahs! Do the Harlem Shake!

It’s been tough to return to the blog to write my last posts (sad)…at least on this version of Tiff’s science blog.  But, I finally got around to putting this together.  Thank you ALL for humoring me on my last day at Synergy.  Miss you guys already!

Here’s our end of the year HARLEM SHAKE!  (Thanks to Aubin for the idea!)

*Before the world of CGI, there was model making!  Each of the Hershey kiss movement was a separate model.  This commercial could have taken 100s of models to make.
