Well, a new internet trend has hit like a ton of bricks, and suddenly I can’t stop seeing it everywhere. It’s called the Harlem Shake, and it uses a track from artist Baauer and has people dancing in absurd ways.
Why am I featuring it here? Well, some of the videos (like the one above) feature characters we appreciate on the site. Also, it’s just hilarious, or at least it will be until there are 100,000 of these videos by the weekend. Move over Psy, this is the thing now. Though I think a Psy Harlem Shake video might break the internet at this point.
Want to make you own? The concept is simple. Have a thirty second clip with someone dancing solo, then when the music kicks in, cut and have a ton of people in the same spot start doing the craziest, most absurd shit they can think of. The trend has spread to hip blogging offices like Buzzfeed, College Humor and The Chive. If Unreality had an office, I might make all the writers do this while wearing Pokemon costumes, but sadly we’re all spread out.
If you still don’t understand what the hell I’m talking about, watch the rest of the videos I’ve compiled below:
