Default wtf is Harlem Shake?

It's all over facebook and youtube. Everybody's talking about it.
I saw a short video of it, and I asked myself why the fu*k is this so popular?
First Gangnam style... and now THIS sh*t? wtf is wrong with everybody?
Not only is the music extremely annoying, but the dance itself looks so stupid.

Can somebody explain to me the origins of this thing and how/why it has become so mainstream? I feel like maybe TPTB are behind this, to turn people into little retards shaking around like fools.

WHHHY??!

Something that the black folks enjoy by the sound of the name perhaps?

It probably stems from either drinking vast amount of coca-cola or Redbull that people have developed the shakes

To me it looks like a bunch of adults behaving like children which is what TPTB want. Get us to dress like kids, dance like kids and for us to speak with a dumbed down vocabulary like kids. Thick stupid people make good slaves.

Yep, music is a powerful control agent.

its a dance that was once made popular by rapper lil bow wow.




the reason its called harlem is because that is where it originates....they are various statements about who the originator is though.

Yeah, it so much better to be miserable, uptight and joyless.

Ah Mr bow wow.
Is he still in the music business do you think?
One had heard that he was considering taking holy orders.

I like a laugh but we're now bombarded with fucktards in mainstream and social media. I've seen enough shitty memes to last a lifetime

Way before that.
I remember the Harlem Shuffle from when I was a kid.

Is not necessarily the same as being an adult who doesn't behave as a child. So no point there.
