    No, not that one.
    This one.

    and many others.
    Have you been watching these videos? What do you guys think about this? Funny, stupid, or even both? Going make your own harlem shake videos? Post it here. While you gather your thoughts, I'll leave you with this.

    It's an actual trend, unlike Gangnam Style, where people just made a bunch of fucking garbage parodies of it. The videos are funny, short (Which is one big factor that makes it less annoying), and I don't really mind this trend catching on TBH.

    I have not seen one person do the Harlem Shake, as opposed to the hundreds of "cool kids" who do Gangnam Style at school.

    it never should have left South Korea.

    IMO, the Jesus Lean is the new Gangnam Style

    I didn't realise Gangnam Style was the old Gangnam Style.

    Well Gangnam Style became popular not because of the dance, but also the music video. I mean the dance also became famous but a lot of people remember the music video (hence the billion-plus views on Youtube).

    I've never heard of the Harlem Shake either.

    But like every single "meme" it'll get old and overused in a matter of days. If a popular video that capitalizes on the Harlem Shake emerges, you'll see the flood of horrific parodies (like Gangnam Style or any other meme) emerge.

    Baauer - Harlem Shake for those who do not know, is trap music.

    A funny and entertaining one at that. But yeah, no it's a far cry from being Gangnam style bro.

    I hope not. Reason: Gangnam Style actually sounds decent while this is just generic dance music whooping.

    Yes. I actually like Gangnam Style. Sue me.

    In the mean time, Gangnam Style has gained more views than all these videos in <24 hours.

    The difference between The Harlem Shake and Gangnam Style is, there is a much higher level of making a Gangnam Style parody as opposed to the average "LOL OMG SO RANDOM XD" with a webcam making a Harlem Shake video. With the average short length of the clips, and the minimal video editing it takes to actually make one of these, you'll not only notice the mass influx of these videos, overshadowing even that of Gangnam Style, but it will also hit mainstream media even faster, thus ending it's cycle as fast as it came. A figurative cloudburst of Internet culture.
