UM-Dearborn Does the Harlem Shake (VIDEO)
Local students got in on the latest internet meme this month.
It starts with one person, most likely in costume, dancing in a room full of people. It ends with an all-out dance party. And this week, University of Michigan-Dearborn students got in on the "Harlem Shake" craze.
The latest internet meme, "Harlem Shake"—according to knowyourmeme.com—is "the title of a 2012 heavy bass instrumental track produced by Baauer. In February 2013, the song spawned a series of dance videos that begin with a masked individual dancing alone in a group before suddenly cutting to a wild dance party featuring the entire group."
A video posted to YouTube on Thursday, Feb. 21, shows a "Harlem Shake" dance party in the UM-Dearborn University Center.
