The Harlem Shake

Happy Friday everyone! In case you hadn’t noticed, the Internet is a weird place. For whatever reason, society goes through weirdo phases where we obsess over certain viral videos or memes: Gangam Style and McKayla Maroney is not impressed, for example.

The latest sensation is the Harlem Shake.

I saw several people posting about this on Twitter and Facebook, and I was quite confused. Naturally, I turned to YouTube and Google, two of the most valid sources on the interwebs. Essentially, the Harlem Shake resembles a flash mob of sorts. The participants are usually dressed in strange masks and Spandex. One person starts gyrating in a slightly uncomfortable fashion for the first bit of the video, then when the bass drops, everyone else in the frame join in these gyrations. I do not fully understand what the phenomenon is with this, and quite frankly it makes me a little uncomfortable.

There have been many reproductions of this video, and a couple Greek houses on campus have done their own variations. I have only seen three so far, but my favorite is Kappa Kappa Gamma’s. Delt and Phi Delt have both done some as well. Enjoy these weird videos, and have a wonderful weekend :)
