NordicTrack created a Youtube video titled 'World Largest Treadmill Dance with over 40 Treadmills!'. The interesting fact is that many Youtubers participated in the dance. The dance was choreographed and done by professional dancers. So no one should try it at home. For more details one can read the details on their Youtube page.

NordicTrack Youtube Page
This video was shot on location on Epic Red Dragon and 4k Sony f7 near Icon Health & Fitness Headquarters in Logan, UT. Twelve YouTube/Vine Stars attended from around the country and 40 dancers literally jog-danced on and off for 12 hours in high altitude.
The question arises whether this video will get the people on the treadmill?
