Is this Gangnam Style’s rival in dance parodies? Maybe so.
The “Harlem Shake” has all kinds of people recording silly dance videos set to the song Harlem Shake by Baauer.
Apparently this dance move has been done before in music videos in the past. So, why is it becoming popular now? We’re not sure.
The dance move involves one person, who typically wears a helmet or mask, dancing alone in the beginning, while others stay still. When the beat drops, the video then cuts to everyone dancing like maniacs. Most change their clothes.
Here’s just a few of the Harlem Shake videos out there:
