One Direction Do The Harlem Shake

Bye bye Gangnam Style, hello Harlem Shake!


If you have no idea what we’re going on about, and you are not yet familiar with the Harlem Shake, you soon will be.

The Harlem Shake is the new dance sensation that’s sweeping the nation!

The dance went viral on YouTube this month and it wasn’t long before the whole world jumped on the Harlem bandwagon!

The idea of the dance is a group of people filming themselves, starting with one dancing around (usually doing a kind of thrust) wearing a helmet and the others pretending to be unaware.

In the second part, it quickly flicks over to all of the others joining in, and doing pretty much whatever they want.

Ok, so it sounds pretty odd, and you’ve got to watch some videos to actually get what we’re talking about.

It’s basically just a bunch of crazy people jumping around and being stupid.

So, now you can understand why we thought the 1D boys would be perfect for the job.

Unfortunately, the boys haven’t actually made their own Harlem Shake video, so we thought we could give you the next best thing.

We’ve put together our own video of clips that looks like they’re dancing along with it.

Yeah, it’s pretty cool.

We love the videos, have a look on YouTube for some of the others, they’re hilarious.

But this is ours, and we think it’s the best 😉

… That is until the boys decide to make their own. Hopefully 😀

PS. Click here to see a brand new One Direction Harlem Shake for Red Nose Day (well, sort of).
