The Harlem Shake: Centreville High School Style

The meme has swept across the country, and Centreville High students recently made their own video.

Haven't heard of the Harlem Shake yet? This video might be a tad confusing. 

Videos of people doing the shake are the latest craze to hit the internet, and a large group of Centreville High School students recently made their own. Their video had over 5,000 views in five days. 

The Daily Beast explains what this is all about:

"The videos begin with the song’s sample of a man giving a shrieking siren call of 'Con los terroristas!'—Columbian Spanish for 'with the terrorists'—followed by one person, usually in a ridiculous mask or helmet, dancing to the song alone as the beat builds. He or she is surrounded by others who are stationary, blissfully unaware of the dancer. When the directive, Then do the Harlem shake is uttered about 15 seconds in, the bass drops and the video metastasizes into pure chaos—the entire coterie engaging in paroxysms of dance for the next 15 seconds in outrageous outfits, and wielding bizarre props."

No, it doesn't make any sense—but it's fun! 

What do you think about the Harlem Shake trend? Like or dislike?
