YouTube Reminder: We’re the Tube Behind Harlem Shake

I’m not even close to being DONE with the Harlem Shake videos. Who are these quitters? Shame on you — get up and rock that banana suit now!

I’ll always remember my first time. It was on with some USC coeds. I’ve watched it 100x. The leader really knows how to rock his pelvis. And his classmates jut their beer belllies with reckless abandon. Oh, how I miss college. And there began my addiction.

It could be the catchy little hook that wakes me up from a midday stupor, or the :30 second factor. Who can’t burn :30 seconds? Heck, you can abandon after :16 seconds and find a dozen more…

Today, YouTube has smartly reminded us viewers who’s behind this viral epidemic that has yet to die. They are. When you enter “Do the Harlem Shake” on YouTube’s search bar, you will be greeted with their own take. If you’re too lazy to type to see what I’m talking about, click here.

I’m impressed. Just imagine the possibilities for future promotions,  especially for sponsors. Type in “Do the Dew”, and the page turns green and the energizing juice comes splashing down the page. Perhaps, this is only the beginning.


YouTube, you made my DigiDay!
