The Harlem Shake.
It’s an Internet meme that has taken the World Wide Web by storm.
They’re essentially thirty second videos which begin with one random person (usually wearing a mask or helmet) dancing to the song “Harlem Shake” by Baauer, while everyone in the background goes about their day.
At about the halfway point, the beat picks up and everyone on screen suddenly starts dancing while wearing colorful and vibrant costumes.
