I can’t have enough of these. The Internet can’t have enough of the Harlem Shakes. In this case, the residents of the Golden West Senior Living in Boulder, CO, the oldest of whom are 100 years old, participate in the HS.
One viewer recognized his Aunt Sue Jenkins, age 94, in the frame.
How can you not love a craze?
And now, let’s go to Wikipedia:
The Harlem Shake is an Internet meme in the form of a video in which a group of people perform a comedy sketch accompanied by a short excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake.”
An Internet meme (pronounced: meem) is a concept that spreads from person to person via the Internet. The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, as an attempt to explain the way cultural information spreads
As a meme, the Harlem Shake video was replicated by many people, using the same concept, and this rapidly led to it becoming viral in early February 2013, with thousands of “Harlem Shake” videos being made and uploaded to YouTube every day.
But, frankly, if your aunt Sue Jenkins is doing it – it’s time to find a new fad.
