Harlem Shake is the latest meme to sweep across the internet. These viral videos involve a masked person dancing to Baauer’s Harlem Shake, completely ignored by the people around them. Then, 15 seconds later, all hell breaks loose as everyone starts “doing the Harlem Shake” and dancing like crazy. Many videos feature odd outfits and costumes, nudity, and general silliness – there are no rules when it comes to doing the shake!
Harlem Shake videos uploaded to Youtube by people from all around the world have received more than a hundred million views combined in just a week. This phenomenon has attracted media attention, which compared the popularity of Harlem Shake to that of Psy’s hit song Gangnam Style. Below you will find the top 10 Harlem Shake videos which contributed to the spread of this meme.
