Producer Just Blaze has a message for "Harlem Shake" opponents: Baauer's version is not a diss, and it shouldn't be taken so seriously. "Times change, things evolve," Blaze told MTV during an interview. "This is the music business, so it's not like the record was made to disrespect the original Harlem Shake. It's like people sometimes over-think it, and they think this record was made for this to happen."
The "this" Blaze speaks of is the national craze behind Baauer's version. It's gone viral and went number one on the Billboard charts. What are your thoughts on the Harlem Shake craze?
