What is the Harlem Shake?

The most Googled trend in February has nothing to do with world peace, religion, sex or politics. No, the one thing everyone wants to see is the Harlem Shake. The Harlem Shake originated in a 31 second video uploaded to YouTube by five guys from Queensland. In the video they are dancing to the song ‘Harlem Shake’, using the signature pelvis-thrusting movements. The video went viral, and now there are over 40,000 versions available on the internet. Still don’t get it? Neither do we, but we’ve got five versions of the Harlem Shake for you to watch so you can be part of the hottest thing on the internet. What a weird world we live in.
