It appears “Gangnam Style” might be dethroned by the the viral-dance-craze-of-the-minute, “Harlem Shake.”

If global trends on Twitter are to be believed — which, in the absence of real empirical data, they are — then “Harlem Shake” is going to be the next annoying dance that everybody and their schnauzer will be performing on camera for the next few weeks.

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to require nearly as much choreography as the horsey-riding, lasso-twirling cowboy shuffle of “Gangnam Style.”

It seems to only require a few friends, helmets, shirtlessness and/or some outlandish costumes. And lots of twerking.

Naturally, plenty of the videos that have flooded the Internet in the past day or two are terrible. But some, you’ve got to admit, are pretty fantastic.

At the very least, it’s better cardiovascular exercise than planking.
