I've heard the song 5 times total, maybe you guys shouldn't watch every single one of the videos.

and yea, you sound like you're just looking for something to hate on to be honest the song is actually cool.

Yeah it got overdone real quick. People trying to do it in large rooms with hundreds of people kind of ruined it for me. Small groups actually makes it funnier.

I feel like my brain has a natural filter to block out all these videos and have only watched a few I thought stuck out and were funny.

I'd hate to be you guys who watched every single one of them and then now complain

Harlem shake just reminds me of that video of the naked guys humping shit around their town, some of the videos are okay but many are terrible.

I have no idea what the harlem shake is, even after watching a video of it and reading the knowyourmeme article on it. it still confuses me.

Well I didn't watch every single one, but I watched enough of the terrible ones to get sick of all of them.

It's a dance style that doesn't really have anything at all to do with this trend. The music and the whole randomness factor? Unrelated.

It's another annoying fad that people will overuse, thinking that they are clever or funny, and it will be forgotten in a month.

There are some that are funny. It's nothing special, but it's not this big horrible thing that some people make it out to be.

There's not much else to add aside from what has already been said and spot-on--unfunny, obnoxious, forced, can't die soon enough, etc.

It's especially bad around here because I live very close to Harlem, and now I feel like I have to avoid it at least for the time being because I'm afraid there will be clusters of drunk idiots getting in my way on the street trying to imitate the Harlem Shake while I'm trying to go somewhere important.

Make Gangnam Style seem like art in comparison.

It was funny the first couple of times, now it's obnoxious and annoying, just like every other internet fad.

I think of the Tunak Tunak song whenever I think of Harlem Shake, makes me think it isn't that bad until I remember that isn't the right song.

Oh wow, the NG community doesn't like something popular? So surprising I never would have seen it coming.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.
