Filmmaker, Chris McGuire wanted to see if Harlem residents approve of the “Harlem Shake”, so he goes to the streets of Harlem to ask them.

McGuire went to 125th street, which is considered the heart of Harlem, and asked several people about what they thought about the “Harlem Shake”.

Many of the Harlem residents were not impressed and clearly disappointed by what they saw. Some even demonstrated how to properly perform the “Harlem Shake”.

Below are just some of the comments from people McGuire spoke to:

“ is making us look bad”

“I think they’re misinformed”

“I think they’re trying to disrespect us”

“An absolute mockery of what it was”

“it’s an injustice”

“We take it seriously, its not a dance, its really a lifestyle”

The video ends with “Please Use The Harlem Shake Responsibly”.
