"this harlem shake stuff is blowing my mind."
I wondered if "The Harlem Shake" was still in full effect on the Internet after posting about it last week? The answer: Yup, still going strong. Don't believe me? Croatia is crazy about this meme.
As of Feb. 11, there have been over 12,000 “Harlem Shake” videos, and they’ve been watched more than 44 million times. Now, YouTube says, over 4,000 of these crazy dance videos are being uploaded per day. Those videos — more than 4,000 of which are posted each day — have been watched upward of 44 million times.
Back in the '80s, the body-quaking move was invented at a Harlem basketball game. From there, it went on to become a hip-hop dance move involving shimmies (shoulder shakes), tics (robotic starts and stops) and pops (leg spasms).
