Any journalism student will tell you that the most difficult aspect of news writing is trying to convey information to your reader as clearly and efficiently as possible. In some cases, visuals are better in transmitting this information than words.
So of course the next logical step in reporting Lil Wayne’s dramatic hospitalization last weekend is to animate it so we all know exactly what happened to our favourite face-tattooed rapper.
From visiting the “hip hop hospital” to the most inappropriate (or appropriate, depending how you look at it) use of Baauer’s “Harlem Shake,” this is basically how I want all my celebrity news to be reported from here on out. The video even shows a miniature Lil Wayne mixing his own Sizzurp (which he is rumoured to be addicted to) and an Angel-version of Lil Wayne busting out some dance moves with Angel Elvis.

I’ve never been a big fan of the Harlem Shake because: 1) Flailing around isn’t even close to what the Harlem Shake is and 2) the concept is pretty gosh darn stupid.
But after trying to watch a bunch of different Harlem Shake videos, I finally came across one that I approve of 100 %. In fact, I just think everyone should stop trying after seeing this one.
This might as well be the very last Harlem Shake ever made, but unfortunately for a small minority of us, this trend is probably not going away for another two weeks.
The “Harlem Shake” is taking over the Internet. If you don’t know what it is, then I can confidently say you’re currently living in Antarctica or under a very large rock.
The “Harlem Shake” was hilarious when it was a novelty, and for the most part it still is, but if you’re anything like me you can begin to feel the sheer number of videos weighing down on you just like the “Call Me Maybe” lip-sync videos of 2012. And if you’ve already reached your limit, you’re not alone.
This panda is FED UP and takes drastic measures to shut down the shake before anyone is even out of their seat. It may seem like an overreaction now, but give it three days and you’ll all know where he’s coming from.
