How many Harlem Shake videos have you seen? Be honest. How many have you made yourself?
For the sake of sanity, it needs to stop. Everybody and their dog (literally) has seemingly made a Harlem Shake video. And with the exception of a few, they’re awful. Just terrible.
Don’t worry. This post isn’t about yet another Harlem Shake video. We would never do that to you. Well, we might… but not today.
The first time I saw one, I said to the computer, “That ain’t no Harlem Shake, people!” And it thrills me to know that I’m not alone in my disdain. I stand firm with the residents of Harlem, NY, in stating that the Harlem Shake videos need to stop.
How ’bout the dude with the boxing gloves? I love that guy. I could listen to his stories for hours. But I’m digressing…
This intervention needed to happen. At the very least, wannabe Harlem Shakers, please, take note of what you saw in the video, and attempt to do the real Harlem Shake. And whatever you do… if you choose to visit the greatest city in the world, do not travel north of 110th Street and attempt to do the fake Harlem Shake.
