Wake Up!!!!! It's 2013 Mad Decent Pon ya Head Bwoy!!!!!!!!!!!! Just Stop F***ing ants!!!
@antoine.becuwe My thing is why don't people look on youtube and look for how to do the "real" Harlem Shake instead of that fake one that stated to trend in Feb. I just hope this fake Harlem Shake trend just stops and fades away cause i'm really tired of this trend on Youtube and people not giving props to the original dance that started in the 80s
@MasterJ24 Yeah but the Baauer song is totally different from the original sampled song and it's made for people to dance just like all the other trap songs ! So people are just dancin' the way they feel it, and people think Filthy Frank's way to dance the Harlem Shake is the real one!
@Screw you DPF Yeah Filthy Frank stated the trend.. my thing is why would most people think that what they're doing is the Harlem Shake but it really isn't the actual dance??
Filthy Frank started the trend I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vJiSSAMNWw
Baauer never designed the dance, it's from a video where a Youtuber is just humping the air with some of his friends to this song. Baauer has nothing to do with the video fad itself other than the song.
What I don't get is why did Baauer use this sample and use the lyric as the title, and have the Harlem Shake dance completely different than the original dance?? Can someone explain to me why he did that? & Also did he give the 2 people he sample writing credits?
