[Update] How We “Harlem Shake” in the Bay Area. It’s not the Harlem Shake.

[Update: see how Harlem reacts in the video below]


Looking for the latest craze to hit the internet? Then, you need to check out the “Harlem Shake.” Its got people from all over the Bay Area World wigging the f*ck out to a song of the same name: Harlem Shake by Baauer. The trend originated from a guy on YouTube called Filthy Frank and its premise is pretty simple: have one person do pelvic thrusts (or, whatever dance you want) for about 15 seconds, and have everyone go delirious for the next 15 seconds for a total of 30 seconds of epic deliriousness. Short and Sweet and highly addictive, you’ll find yourself being one of the 44 million viewers to check out all the videos on YouTube. Who knows? You’ll probably be the next group to upload your own “Harlem Shake” video. In the meantime, here are a few of our favorites:
