Harlem Shake Hits the BVI [TOP 5]

By: Nick Cunha | Last Updated: January 6, 2017


A man in a sleeping bag dancing under water, an old lady picking her nose, people with horse heads spilling milk over themselves. Creativity for some, foolishness for others. But whatever the case, all are watching. In real time, 2,782 years if harlem shake footage was watched in a single month–that’s some 27 centuries of eyeballs on Harlem shaking.


[learn_more caption=”What is the Harlem Shake (meme)?”] It’s usually a 30 seconds long video with a group of people performing all sorts of crazy dancing and comedy sketch, accompanied by the “Harlem Shake” song by Baauer. Usually, the video begins with a single person dancing for 15 seconds, surrounded by seemingly uninterested people. In the other 15 seconds, the entire group engages in crazy, often repulsive way of dancing.

Is the Harlem Shake dying or growing?

Thousands of videos were uploaded to Facebook in early February 2013–currently with tens of millions views (more than 36,000,000 for the video above). It seems not to go away. The Atlantic magazine declared the meme to be dead as early as mid of February. Forbes magazine states that there is just too many videos and people should not create new ones. Nevertheless, the new videos continue to be uploaded, immediately receiving high traffic as new-Harlem-shake hungry people just can’t resist to watch.
