To this point we’ve managed to ignore the viral sensation of the moment – videos of various people not from Harlem dancing to Baauer‘s trap/rave/EDM track “Harlem Shake” (thus all but eclipsing the original uptown dance of the same name). But since someone finally got around to including actual Harlemites in the conversation (EDIT: besides those who’ve previously worked with Baauer), hey, we couldn’t resist. Here, various people on 125th Street watch and react to the recent wave of “Harlem Shake” videos sweeping the Interwebz. And as you might guess they’re not finding much special about its delivery to the world’s stage. Word to G. Dep.
