It seems that the wonder song Gangnam Style has finally been resigned to the “it’s so last year” pile as a group of students show the Harlem Shake is the new dance to be. Well, after some digging, i came to find out that The Harlem Shake began as a dance in the 80’s but the latest version featured in the online videos is an electronic track by DJ Baauer who released the single last year.
The videos start with a person mostly masked, dancing while everyone else in the room pays no attention to him, but when the chorus kicks in they all join in, usually wearing crazy costumes like giraffes and bears.
Just go and youtube Harlem Shake and see for yourself. 😀
