Most annoying dance trend ever besides Gangnam Style in which both have been plaguing the Internet. The idea of one dancing while everyone else remains unaware and then jump-cuts to where everyone starts dancing along has got to be the most ridiculous shit ever.
Person 1: Dude, Harlem Shake is so funny. You gotta look it up on Youtube. I might as well start one myself.

Person 2: Dude, shut the hell up. As much as you would post links about Kony and change your Facebook pic to that Kony promo pic, you are obviously just wanting to fit in the latest *viral* trends just so you won't feel left out.

Yet another moronic dance trend from Youtube. It starts with people in the room (or other strange location) and one person shaking like a retard and after few seconds the rest of the people do even more stupid things. I suppose this ilustrates that stupidity of one person quickly infects others.
Just when you thought that the limit of stupidity was reached with Gangnam Style, something like harlem shake shows up and completely ruins your faith in humanity.

An eccentric upper body dance move that involves the shaking of the upper torso and shoulders. The Harlem Shake originated on 125th and Lexington where gang bangers would shoot unsuspecting cripples with crutches. The staggering fall of these cripples created a signature move, adapted by gang-affiliates and introduced at local parties. Upon witnessing the newly created “Harlem Shake,” a corporate thug under the Bad Boy Entertainment payroll reenacted and sold this dance to famous choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson who introduced this dance with the video premier “Let’s Get It” by P. Diddy featuring G-Dep and Black Rob. The phenomenon sweeping white neighborhoods and Italian nightclubs across the country was born… the Harlem Shake.
Daddy, Sarah and I want to go to Abyss and do the Harlem Shake.

A new stupid dance crass on YouTube, and people just making idiots of themselves. Usely only about 30-45 seconds long, where it starts out as one person dancing and everyone not noticing. Til about half way and then everyone in the room dances and shakes usely masked to hide their shame.
Did you see Jimmy Fallon on YouTube doing the Harlem Shake?

Yeah they all looked retarted!
