“The Harlem Shake is an Internet phenomenon based on viral videos that began to gain popularity in early February 2013″ according to Wikipedia. I first heard about this on my way to work this morning when as they were talking about it on the radio. It all started when this video was published on YouTube
Now like most things like this the original is generally beaten by other people doing the same thing bigger and better like this one.
And of course like all Internet crazes like this one and such as planking, They begin, catch on and then quickly fade away. Unfortunately it’s at this point when it has become so uncool that you can guarantee the older generation will then give it a go.
The below Google Trends graph shows that it has only just begun and it will be interesting to see how this evolves.
So get out there and get Harlem Shaking now!
