The Harlem Shake videos on YouTube has left me in tears. It’s the latest viral video craze, inspired by the hip-hop dance style of the same name. Everyone has been doing it.
So this is how it works. A video opens with one person, usually disguised in some way, dancing to the 2012 song “Harlem Shake” by Baauer. Other people in the shot are usually minding their own business, ignoring the weird person dancing in the corner.
About 15 seconds in, people start dancing wildly in the same location. It’s a bit hard to explain, so it might be easiest if you just check it out.
Oh and here is some Social Media Stats on the Harlem Craze:
And as you could see, Americans and people in other countries have so much fun with their lives, they don’t care what people think. Hahaha watch me do mine.
