As you might have seen, I like to highlight some crazy videos on Youtube if they catch my fancy. If you have been watching the internet airwaves, you must have seen this new Internet Meme, the Harlem Shake.
The Harlem shake has taken Youtube by storm in the last month. It started off as a video posted by 5 Australian teenager to the tune of “Con los terroristas!” by Baauer (Harry Rodrigues), a Brooklyn DJ. The original dance popularied by Al B (Albert Leopold Boyce) who used to do this crazy drunken dance at basketball matches in New York.
This craze is catching up to the uber popular Gangnam Style videos that has broken all records of Youtube views.
