By now, you've definitely heard of the "Harlem Shake" viral video craze, which isn't the actual Harlem Shake, but a thirty-second video that involves (1) An Electro-Clash Track, played over a video of (2) A single person, usually in a group of people, usually wearing some kind of "silly" headgear, (3) Air-humping, or doing an equally Beavis-like dance, (4) Until the beat drops, at which point, (5) Everyone who was previously a docile fixture of the background then goes wild, and then (6) It ends.
