Ever heard of the Harlem Shake?
If you’re online, you probably have as there are have been over 40,000 variations uploaded.
A brief history: The meme started with a video uploaded on February 2nd by The Sunny Coast Skate crew out of Australia, which was based on another comedy blogger Filthy Franks video, where in one part, several costumed persons danced to the song “Harlem Shake” which was released on May 22, 2012, by Brooklyn producer Baauer.
Not one to be left behind, Boulder’s own yoginis are getting in on the action.
It’s great to see yogis having fun and getting silly after class – it’s a nice balance to what can be a serious practice.
What’s your favorite Harlem Shake video and are you a hater or are you liking the latest meme?
