It reminds me of when white people got ahold of "bling" and started using it completely wrong. "Wow, look at her new hair! She's bling bling!"

Do you share this sentiment in all the threads where non-white people are generalized? It seems everyone gets a long pretty well when it isn't white people being singled out as embarrassingly goofy or psychotic maniacs.

But hip-hop fans knew that the dance they were seeing in these new videos was not at all like the Harlem Shake dance that has been around for more than 30 years. Al B, a man who used to dance during breaks at the Entertainer's Basketball Classic at Rucker Park in Harlem beginning in 1981, has gotten much of the Internet credit for inventing the original Harlem Shake, a dance characterized by wild jerking of the arms and upper body. At one point, it was referred to as the "Albee."

In a barely comprehensible 2003 interview with basketball website InsideHoops.com, Al B says the dance originated with mummies in Egypt, who shook because they didn't have freedom to use their limbs. "It was a drunken dance, you know, from the mummies, in the tombs," he asserted. "That's what the mummies used to do. They was all wrapped up and taped up. So they couldn't really move, all they could do was shake."

I avoided watching all the videos because I assumed people were just reviving the original Harlem shake. Boy was I wrong.

Wow, I got curious and looked up the real story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ztiAN9k584

I honestly got choked up watching that video. I hope for her sake (and the husbands, but more for her) that having sex gets rid of it too.

Edit: Now I don't know what is going on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj_7W...ture=fvwp&NR=1
I'm thinking her reaction was real, and has just improved over time, but I don't know shit about the disorder other than what these videos told me.

yup.. Usually if its black people or some other group being made fun of (even in tragedy) then its all fun and jokes

(lighten up bro)

btw.. Why call it Harlem Shake when there already is a Harlem shake, and these dudes aint from Harlem?

Wtf? why not just give it an original name? lol

pop culture today is pretty lame
