Harlem Shake (meme)

The Harlem Shake is an Internet meme in the form of a video in which a group of people dance to a short excerpt from the song "Harlem Shake". As a meme, the video was replicated by many people, using the same concept, which led to it becoming viral in early February 2013, with thousands of "Harlem Shake" videos being made and uploaded to YouTube every day at the height of its popularity.

Here's a video on YouTube I found that shows you how to do the Harlem Shake. It's not those silly dances videos you see all over YouTube, it's the original, old-fashion Harlem Shake. Enjoy!

I'm not quite sure how this became so big in the media world but if someone asked my to be in a Harlem Shake video.... I would help them out.
