Harlem Shake

If you don’t know what the Harlem Shake is (???), then you should read this.

  •  The Harlem Shake dance was originally called the “albee”, because it was introduced by a  Harlem resident, a man named Al B.
  • It obviously originated from Harlem, New York.
  • 3. Al B is quoted saying that the dance is “a drunken shake anyway, it’s an alcoholic shake, but it’s fantastic, everybody appreciates it.” 
  • Despite the fact it was introduced in 1981, it went mainstream in 2001 while being featured in a music video.
  • The song featured in the video is called “The Harlem Shake”, by Baauer.
  • The video usually last from 30 to 35 seconds.  One person will dance while the song begins (they are usually wearing a silly costume). Then, when the bass drops, everyone is dancing like crazy for the next fifteen seconds of the video.

Update 3/9/13

Sorry I haven’t uploaded anything recently. And I have to make this quick, so…

First, I made a Twitter. And then I made a YouTube account. My Twitter is @doctor_giraffe, and my YouTube channel is obviously TheDoctorGiraffe. I haven’t uploaded anything, but I’m working on it. 

I also might post something about the Harlem Shake that you should read.
