"The Harlem Shake" is a ridiculous trend (and we love it)
(CBS News) So last weekend I caught a video online of people doing something called "The Harlem Shake". And I watched, chuckled and moved on to cat videos. I wouldn't have thought about it again, but then the Internet decided to explode with parodies and emulations of it. So click play and check out a recent example above to get an idea of what this new trend is all about.
The latest video for the trend entitled "Harlem Shake v3 (office edition)" was posted by YouTube user Hi i'm Rawn (with music by Baauer), and I have to admit: I'm kind of impressed and hope to see more now. Is it ridiculous? No doubt. But it's the kind of ridiculous your blogger here can get behind. If you're curious to know more on the trend, click here to see the Know Your Meme article. And to check out more work from Hi i'm Rawn, you can click here to go to his YouTube page.
