It took a rock from space to derail the viral supremacy of the "Harlem Shake," but that's exactly what Friday's Russian meteor has accomplished.

According to Visible Measures, a video analytics and advertising firm, videos of the Russian meteor amassed more than 7.7 million views in less than 15 hours. And, of course, people have wasted no time posting videos and memes.

A few people tried combining the meteor with the "Harlem Shake." Most are pretty bad, but one combined the song with a pretty good roundup of meteor videos.

Users also have been cracking meteor jokes on Twitter.
