YouTube's Harlem Shake easter egg

Harlem Shake is a bit February 2013 and all, but here's one more snippet: a great YouTube easter-egg. Wait for it. (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)


    1. Like with any popular dance when people can do it well (and combine it with other styles) it doesn’t look like some spastic person going out of their mind:

    2. I can see how people would find it obnoxious, since it really has nothing to do with Harlem and nothing to do with the actual dance so has no reason to be called the “Harlem Shake” at all. But I don’t know if it can count as appropriation when people aren’t even remotely close to doing the dance. It’s more like people who don’t even know the dance exists doing whatever improvised moves they want to the song because they saw some other people dancing to it on YouTube.

  1. Easter Egg? Wait for what? That’s just a link to a “Harlem Shake” Youtube search which everyone of us even remotely aware of the phenomenon has already done once or twice, and the top results are some of the less remarkable examples … so I don’t really get this post. I’m not even sure if there was anything to “get” in this post, sorry.

    … now I’m left with that stupid feeling of not having understood the obvious joke — did I miss something?

    I did miss something. Doesn’t work in Opera. Did work in Chrome, and is actually not that bad.

        1.  I hope you waited for the break; it goes a bit beyond the YouTube video shaking.

  2. Does it count as an Easter Egg if you don’t have to look for it?

    Pretty cool though, although I prefer the little animated PSY.
