(USA TODAY) -- Move over Dreamliner, the "Harlem Shake" is now competing for your attention with the Federal Aviation Administration.
Thatcomes after a group of Colorado College students decided to bring thelatest choreographed dance phenomenon to the cabin of a FrontierAirlines flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego, according to KUSA Channel 9 of Denver.
Thestudents - members of Colorado College's club Frisbee team - made avideo of the performance, and that's what caught the attention of theFAA.
"That was my Ultimate Frisbee team and a bunch of randompeople as well," 21-year-old senior team captain Dan Eppstein tells theLos Angeles Times about the episode. "Everyone who was on that flight joined in."
Eppsteinsays his group consulted with attendants before the performance, sayingthey gave students permission. He says the group also canvassed otherpassengers and said none objected.
As for the FAA's interest, the agency tells KUSA 9 Newsof Denver it's concerned about whether the plane was at a safe altitudefor passengers to be out of their seats and moving about the cabin.
"They are still looking into it, it's still open," Tony Molinero, FAA spokesman tells The Catalyst,the student newspaper at Colorado College. "...I don't know where the[investigators] were told about it, but when they saw the video theyjust decided to look into it because it is better to be safe thansorry."
Frontier acknowledged the FAA's investigation, but insists nothing was amiss.
Frontier spokeswoman Kate O'Malley says that the company does not comment on pending investigations, but adds to NBC News: "All safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off."
"ObviouslyI hope that this whole situation is solved with the FAA...," Matt Zelin,the Colorado College sophomore who filmed the dance, says to the Catalyst. "I don't see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. We asked the staff and they said it was safe."
Steve Wallace, former director of the FAA's Office of Accident Investigation, disagreed in an interview with CNN.
"Ithink there is a safety issue here. Turbulence injuries are the mostcommon type of injuries, and they are virtually eliminated when peopleare in their seat belts," he says to the news network.
He also suggested it could be used as a ruse by terrorists.
"I think a federal air marshal might find that a bit confusing," Wallace tells CNN.
VedaShook, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, echoes thatsentiment, telling CNN: "You don't know what every person's intentionsare."
