There's this Harlem Shake meme (if thats what it's classified as?)  that went viral this month, and they've been going around YouTube and stuff.

The song is  "Harlem Shake" by Baauer.

 

 

Original:

 

 

 

And then a lot of people, and schools have been doing remakes!

 

News Edition:

 

Even Seaworld:

 

 

And Public transportation:

 

 

Thoughts?

(is this thread worth? i'm just curious to see what people think)

 

There are so many more, so feel free to search lol

I still don't really understand the hype with this, even though my classmates have been talking about it for a week and already did their own version. Well, some videos indeed are a good laugh, while others are just.. weird.

 

From what I've seen so far, this one must be my favorite:

 

 

Though, I don't know.. if my classmates offered to be in this video, I'd probably agree.  :lol: It must be fun filming this.

stupid to you maybe, because you don't understand the lyrics, but psy is far from a one-hit wonder, and also quite far from someone writing stupid songs.

 

also, one of our rival schools decided to do that.

Just another internet fad that people will forget about in a few months. It's getting kinda annoying how the internet regularly throws out mindless shit that people latch on to.

This is one of those memes where most of them are dumb, but when you do it right, some are brilliant. I haven't watched many vids of this but these are the two that I like the most:

I've been seeing people do this for months and it's just now going viral?!? Sort of off topic: anyone seen ADoseOfBuckley's YouTube video where he gives his thoughts on it?

Psy is most certainly a one-hit wonder in the States, at least.

Nope. States = States. That's why I put the disclaimer "at least" at the end.

The song is incredibly awful, but I like how much creativity all these people are putting in these videos. Some of them are really cool. A couple of friends made a video at a party I was at, so I'm curious what it will look like. I was a bit shocked by how shit this song is when they started playing it at said party though, haha.

Am I the only one who is muting the videos while watching?

YES, the Slenderman one killed me. That one and, of course, this one, are the only ones I like.

 

 

Because of changes to Billboard's algorithms or whatever, the song is now No. 1. So, that's the world we live in now. =/
