A strange thing happend to me today. As of February 18, in the year of our lord 2013, I had all but written off “Harlem Shake” videos. I had my fill of office workers literally shaking off the soul-crushing monotony of their existences to the tune of trap producer Baauer’s “Harlem Shake.”
That is, until now. Consider me a born again Harlem Shake-er? Shake-ite?
I’m not going to lie to you, the above video might be my favorite thing of 2013. A lot of people are going to claim to have the best “Harlem Shake” video you’ve ever seen, and, sure, they might be good. But the best? Unless they show you this masterwork above then they don’t know a goddamn thing.
Brace yourself for glory, dear reader.
