You may or may not already be familiar with (or sick of) the Harlem Shake meme that’s been going around on YouTube recently. I think it’s pretty funny even if it’s already on its way out as many pop culture experts are predicting…
If you need to catch up, Wikipedia describes the concept:
“The videos last 30-something seconds and feature an excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake” by electronic musician Baauer. Usually, a video begins with one person (often helmeted or masked) dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people not paying attention or unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, the video switches to the entire crowd doing a crazy convulsive dance for the next 15 seconds. The dancing style should not be confused with the original Harlem Shake dance. Moreover, in the second half of the video, people often wear crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.”
It’s not just humans that have gotten in on the act…here are some of my favorite Harlem Shake Videos featuring hilarious and cute animals:
