HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – If you’re from Huntsville, you might recognize many, if not all, of the locations in a new music video released on Tuesday.

Christian band MercyMe, best known for their hit 2001 song “I Can Only Imagine,” released the video for their new single, “Shake,” on Tuesday.

Recognizable landmarks featured in “Shake” include, D’Licious Dining & Smokehouse Grill, the UAH parking deck, the fountain at Big Spring Park between the VBC and the Embassy Suites, the Lydia Gold Skatepark, and Downtown Huntsville.

Owners at D’Licious Dining & Smokehouse Grill say the entire process was “off the hook,” and they are super excited to see their unique building featured on a national stage.

“This has been awesome we have had lots of people coming in saying they saw our place in the video today,” Executive Chef Rae Allen says.

“Shake” featured local dancers from North Alabama Dance Center and Jill’s Studio of Dance and was choreographed by Mike Rickles, according to our news partners at The Huntsville Times and al.com.

Rickles told all of the dancers, “The only wrong dance move is no dance move – move! Just make sure everything is pure – underscore pure – fun. No twerking!”

Many Huntsville based agencies contributed to “Shake,” including the director of the video, Irvin Joel Banta IV, of the Huntsville-based BilbyFilms and Mark Smith, the minister of media at Willowbrook Baptist Church, who collected the extras through his Facebook post and word-of-mouth, according to the Huntsville Times and al.com.
