Normally I try to post videos of dance that inspire me, or move me, or just make me want to get up and grove, but this week, I decided to talk about this craze that is obviously sweeping the globe — The Harlem Shake. Im not even going to pretend like I don’t get into the whole nod at the flash mob, and my inner greek loves the ridiculous costumes and the rave like activity, but I also wish it was something a little more aweseom than gyrating and being ridiculous. But, alas, I keep finding myself pouring through so many of these when I am bored. Or talking to all these people about them, so I thought what better place to share all my favorites than here… with you… on the day that I talk about dance. So, I am sure you are all as sick of these videos as I am, but just in case you’re not… here’s several 30 second videos of people who can do the harlem shake like beasts!
The first, Clemson University… because I went there, and its awesome, and I love this.
UGA Men’s Swim & Dive Team — This one is underwater, and thats all you need to know.
St. Petersburg, Russia, Subway Edition, this one cracks me up, I don’t know why. At first you can tell people are trying not to laugh because they obviously know whats going on, and then… the insanity breaks out and the guy in the camo sleeping bag LITERALLY kills me..So weird.
Emily Sasson Style — shes an awesome hip hop choreographer annnd I love that she did legit choreography to this! AND the dance is longer than 3o seconds, which makes it doubly awesome!
