Apparently the new thing around the world... Not sure how to feel about it... Is this a new flash mob or something?

You're about three weeks late on this.

First heard about it... What is it all about?

The real harlem shake used to appear in hip hop videos when I was a kid. This 'harlem shake' is a new flash mob type fad, and I kinda like it, I just hate the name (because its not the harlem shake)

one of the few things in today's social media where I can point to something collectively funny that unifies society on a grand scale.

I mean really, what's not to like?

I kept seeing/hearing stuff about it over the last few weeks and I was thinking, "why are people talking about this like it's new?" What I didn't realize is that it isn't the actual Harlem Shake. The REAL Harlem Shake became popular when I was in my late teens and was prominent in music videos. It was usually just one person doing this:

But, now the "new" version of Harlem Shakes are something totally different. In the videos I've seen people making now, very few, if any are actually doing the dance itself. Regardless, some of them are really funny... The Heat video with Dwayne Wade wearing that Bear head just makes me want to laugh for some reason. Pretty cool movement IMO.

Wait till some of you guys have teens and pre teens and watch the speed in which a fad gets run into the ground.

Fads are like good cereal. Taste good but doesn't last long.
