What is The Harlem Shake meme?
The Harlem Shake, is best known as the video meme with the dance done to the song Harlem Shake, by Baauer.

The Harlem Shake meme consists of a 30 second short video, which begins with one person dancing, typically wearing something that covers the head.

The person enters a room and casually bops the head to the music, while other people around go about routine business.

Then the camera shot changes and suddenly an entire crowd of people appear, as they dance along with doing silly moves. They also wave their hands while moving their feet. They may seem silly but they are actually doing the popular Harlem Shake.
