On the YouTubes: The Harlem Shake, Whatever That Is

Please to be enjoying this YouTube video of the crazy kidz at South Lakes High School doing that thing all the crazy kidz are crazy about these days: the "Harlem Shake." We don't know what the "Harlem Shake" is ourselves, because we are old. Is it the same thing as YOLO?

In the interest of equal time, here's the Herndon High School answer to the "Harlem Shake":

If that's too much for you, you can always watch some video of Lake Anne Elementary's principal doing the Gangnam style dance on the roof of the school. That we know about, because it was on the Today show a bunch of times and they use it to advertise pistachios, the end.


  1. I only like Harlem Shakes if they contain a person writhing in a sleeping bag like a caterpillar metamorphosing into a chrysalis. Neither of these had it. The Herndon one was especially terrible because of the unspeakable things those guys were doing to that poor, defenseless stuff bear.

  2. We had sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.
    Now its AIDS, crack and Techno.
