If you're like us, chances are you've been itching for a new dance craze, and maybe even woke up Wednesday morning looking to try out a few new maneuvers.
Good news: In the last couple of weeks a classic has been revived for a new decade: the Harlem Shake. Born in the 1980s, the move has evolved into a few different forms since then, but reappeared when a video appeared of some young men going crazy for a song called "Harlem Shake" by Baauer.
It's a fun, funky dance track, somewhere between a house jam and an instrumental hip hop record, synthetic, freaky and featuring the roar of a lion. And for some magical reason, the dance has exploded online, where hundreds of videos have appeared.
Most follow the same action: In a room of people, one person, often wearing a motorcycle helmet, starts a groin-grind in rhythm to the opening synth noises. This one dancer does so as the rest of the people ignore him. Then, when Baauer's track digs into the rhythm, the whole room erupts -- usually with an edit to the same people donning ridiculous costumes and dancing.
