Harlem Shake: A Viral Dance Video Phenomenon

Harlem Shake (original army edition)

The whole Harlem Shake phenomenon occurred while All World Dance was on an extended break.

However I created a Storify page called “The Harlem Shake: From Its Origins To The Hot 100” for Hypebot.

The video above was noted by YouTube as a top trending video for 2013 but I was a bit more partial to such instance classics as:

Harlem Shake v3 (office edition)

Harlem Shake (Matt and Kim Edition)

While we all have our individual favorites (or not) it was the overall phenomenon that made Harlem Shake such a great web event.
