'Harlem Shake' Craze Hits University of Georgia
UGA men's swim and dive, football team and basketball team have posted their versions of the latest internet video craze.
Goodbye "Gangnam Style," hello "Harlem Shake."
So what exactly is the "Harlem Shake"? According to UPI.com, the roughly 30-second video productions typically start with just one dancer gyrating to DJ Baauer's 2012 "Harlem Shake" soundtrack. Then, when the bass line kicks in, a whole group of people -- often in costumes and frequently helmets -- join in a dance that can best be described as chaotic.
