Even pups are doing the Harlem Shake now.
The roughly 30 second dance craze that is sweeping the internet has already seen a number of participants, as celebrities and sports teams all rush to put a video together and upload it to YouTube. Now even non-humans are cashing in on the craze.
To take a step back, the Harlem Shake is a viral sensation that started with a video uploaded to YouTube in late January. In the video, a lone person dances to the song “Harlem Shake“ by electronic musician Baauer while seemingly disinterested people stand in the background. After about 15 seconds, the beat drops and the scene cut to everyone in the background joining in with some ridiculous dances.
Now pups are doing the Harlem Shake too. A video published on YouTube on Tuesday called “Harlem Shake (Puppy Edition)” shows a single dog bopping along to the song. When the beat drops, the scene cuts to a group of dogs jumping up and down as if they were dancing.
The puppy Harlem Shake video already has more than 500,000 views on YouTube.
And it’s not even the only YouTube video where pups do the Harlem Shake. Another one uploaded on Friday called “Harlem Shake Dog Party Edition” uses some clever editing tricks to show a group of dogs appearing to dance along to the electronic music.
