Do the #HarlemShake

So you might have heard about the latest internet video craze, the Harlem Shake. The evolution of my experience with it went something like this.

Tuesday night: Noticing that #HarlemShake was trending on Twitter along with #StateoftheUnion and #republicanresponse. I was intrigued, but choose to handle things like dinner and sleeping after an incredibly long day instead of googling this term.

Wednesday: a friend says “Hey have you heard about this #HarlemShake thing?” and shows me this video: (skip ad about virool, or watch it, it’s pretty clever, but that’s not the video)

(special place in my heart, former swimmer and all…)

Well that video lead to another: (warning there is gyrating in all of these)

And another:

For some longer fun try searching for one of the many compilation videos that have since been made.

Fast forward to Friday night and I’m explaining this #HarlemShake phenomena to my boyfriend.

“Someone starts dancing usually wearing some sort of helmet or animal head costume, etc.”

Then I confess that just the night before, when I couldn’t sleep I had searched “Harlem Shake KU Basketball”.Β  (Side Note: My boyfriend is a huge University of Kansas Basketball fan and I had been watching these guys for awhile now, and they seemed like the kind of guys who might do this kind of thing.) But I was disappointed to find nothing.

A couple hours later I hear that familiar music coming from my boyfriend’s phone in the other room and he is cracking up.

“Remember that text message I got during dinner?” he says, “My KU buddy sent me this link”


Note: Looking for more fun? The other viral video craze I really got into was “s*** girls say” and all that came from it….

And btw here’s the update to that event:

  1. I also saw that this was trending but was too busy at the time to search. Yesterday I heard this song on the radio and I had no clue what the fuss was about. I got home and searched on youtube and saw this video of the US Marine Corps doing the harlem shake.

    Very interesting…some people have way too much time on their hands but hey, they sure do know how to have fun!

  2. LOL! so random, they look like they are going insane. That’s how I look if you wake me up too early. I lay on my bed and just squirm around while punching my pillow. LOL! JK.
