In case you have been living under a rock for the past week, the Harlem Shake is the meme spreading across the internet like a wildfire.
To catch you up to speed, the Harlem Shake meme involves a lone masked dancer breaking it down to the song “Harlem Shake” by Philadephia-based producer Baauer, while the rest of the scene is oblivious when suddenly as the beat drops the video explodes into a wild uncontrollable dance party.
The ease in which you can create this type of video has created more than 32,000 versions of the dance to appear on Youtube virtually overnight.
Of course brands started to get involved, but what’s neat is watching people try and outdo one another in these videos, which is why we present this epic list of 16 brands doing the Harlem Shake:
3. Arizona Diamondbacks
5. Red Bull Racing
6. Ryan Seacrest
10. The Daily Show
14. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
15. KSLA News
16. Maker Studios
Bonus: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models
Kudos to these companies for mobilizing their teams and coming up with a creative idea in a short amount of time.
