The 7 Best Social Media 'Challenges' of All Time

The Harlem Shake

The Harlem Shake – not the dance from the 1980s – is a 30-second video that begins with one person in a mask or helmet on, dancing to the beginning of “Harlem Shake” by Baauer surrounded by people not paying attention. At 15 seconds, the song features a bass drop and that is when the video includes a jump cut to the entire crowd dancing wildly usually using props and costumes. The Harlem Shake trend was created by Youtube user “DizastaMusic.” Youtube users began replicating the original video and uploading their own.
