Apparently, doing the “Harlem Shake” is a thing.
And the more Harlem Shake dance videos I watch tears spurt from my eyes.
Now if you’re a hip-hop junkie like me, you’ll know that the Harlem Shake that’s flooding Youtube isn’t the actual shake we grew up watching or doing, but these videos are still fun to watch.
The first being from one of my family’s most favorite spot in the world — the Omaha Children’s Museum.
The museum’s characters and children visiting got their groove on with props they had stored away. I’m really digging Dora off to the side, but Darth Vader has got moves like Jagger. Which prop do you like best?
A few other clips you’ll enjoy from the web including ‘Royal Family’ impersonators:
