If you’re on the Internet frequently, you may have noticed a new phenomenon spreading across the tubes called the Harlem Shake. If you haven’t, well, you’re in for a treat. Take a look.


I can’t resist this kind of thing. So, I want to put together the first Internet Dance Party (from what I can tell, at least). It will take you 60 seconds of your time and the returns are enormous.

  1. Go to this YouTube video of the song. We only need the first 30 seconds.
  2. Record yourself on your webcam (or other recording device) doing something normal. Typing, reading, grading…whatever, for 15 seconds.
  3. When the beat drops at the 15 second mark, record yourself throwing down some sick dances moves. Costumes are encouraged.
  4. Save your video and upload it to this folder.
  5. Watch for the link with the finished video.

Thanks to Jeremy Macdonald for introducing me to the Harlem Shake.
