Harlem Shake

So, the buck passes out on the floor… what else is there to do other than the Harlem Shake baby.

What’s the Harlem Shake I hear you ask? Obviously, that’s your way of saying you’ve been living under a rock and on your first connection to the interwebs, you came to see us… we’re flattered, truly. However, our good friends at Wikipedia explain the Harlem Shake in their usual straight forward, way:

The videos last between 30 and 32 seconds and feature part of the song “Harlem Shake” by electronic musician Baauer. Usually, a video begins with one person (often helmeted or masked) dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people not paying attention or unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, the video cuts to the entire crowd doing a crazy convulsive dance for the next 15 seconds. Additionally, in the second half of the video, people often wear a minimum of clothes or crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.

The song starts with a 15 seconds intro, then 15 seconds with the bass, then a lion roar at the end of the first 30 seconds, making videos songs easy to create.

Just watch and learn and do the Harlem Shake on the first fella at the bucks party to pass out.


Ok, now to see the ladies do the shake… that’s much better than seeing a bunch of sweaty hairy men shaking their money maker!
