Today while I was checking out youtube I started to see alot of videos about some sort of Harlem Shake. I ignored them at first untill my Friend Nyia asked me if I had scene it and knew what it was. I had no clue, then she told me about a video of her Aunt Diane doing it with her family. So on the hunt for it I found it. I about died laughing and instantly became addicted on watching others.
Crazy how something can be such a craze in just 3 weeks
Following from Wikipedia
The art form of this meme was established by five teenagers known as The Sunny Coast Skate from Queensland, Australia. After a while, more people started to replicate the original video and upload their own versions to YouTube, therefore Harlem Shake became what is called an Internet meme, in this case a series of similar videos re-created according to a similar concept.
The videos last 31 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 cuts 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 a minimum of clothes or crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.
The Original that started it all….
Aunt Diane and Family
Air Force Version (LOVE IT)
