Bradford does the Harlem Shake!
2:29pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
It's the internet craze that has taken the world by storm - the Harlem Shake.
Believed to have originated in early February in Australia, the original video uploaded to the video sharing site YouTube prompted an avalanche of copycats, with thousands being uploaded to the site every day at the height of the craze.
Each short video is soundtracked by techno outfit Baauer's Harlem Shake track, and initially features a lone dancer, usually masked or in costume. Other people ignore the dancer, until the break in the track after 15 seconds or so when the video cuts to everyone gyrating crazily.
People have made Harlem Shake videos in schools, workplaces, out on the streets or just in their own homes. The proliferation of good-quality video cameras on even the cheapest phone and free access to sites such as YouTube have put the ability to join in the fun in anyone's hands.
