So many YouTubers are posting videos of their personalized “Harlem Shake” that I have no words to describe the booty-shaking madness anymore. But there’s a special place in my heart for this one by Matt and Kim, not only because I’m in love with them but because I’m going to their concert this weekend so now I’m extra stoked.
Please do this on Saturday, kay Matt and Kim? Thanks.
According to Wikipedia (the most legit source of the internet…) “The Harlem Shake” was originally called the albee and started in Harlem around 1981. The dance became mainstream in 2001 when G-Dep featured it in his music video “Let’s Get It.”
If you’re still not sure how or why the “krazy kids” are doing the “Harlem Shake,” leave it to dance instructor Professor Lock on mahalodotcom.
