What is the Harlem Shake?

Report as

NONE OF YOU KNOW THE REAL ANSWER, here it goes....The Harlem Shake or The Harlem Shake Dance is a very interesting Dance, it`s telling Gunman Style move out of the way, with more than 4,000 versions and more than 175,000,000 visits on You Tube, it consists in one person starting to dance and people start to join one by one like Follow The Leader type Dance but in this case you have the choice of doing the craziest step that most fits your personality, the name of the dance it`s because of the name of the track used on the video. "Harlem Shake" 1981 produced by USA DJ named Baauer and the dance it self was first danced in the early 80`s.

At parties you agreed with friends you would start it and they would have to join kind of like a commitment with your friends before any party and ask the DJ to play the song and when your friends heard the song they were supposed to join you on the dance floor and surprise everyone at the party, it was so funny to see everyone`s reaction, I lived it. with my friends we did it at the supermarket with a boom box and everyone was laughing and we did it at the bank and one of my friends almost got arrested, A video is fine but to do it live is 100 times better.

I think it was invented to spoof Gangam, but it just might become bigger. Here's a great compilation...it's 10 mins long but hilarious from beginning to end.

It's a fad going on around youtube, you start with a cool beat, regular dancing i'd say.. Then the bass drops and some crazy sh*t happens.
