Harlem Shakes from Cape Town South Africa

10 of the Mother City's best Baauer ‘Harlem Shake’ video memes

When trap music producer Baauer uploaded his ‘Harlem Shake’ track onto YouTube in mid-2012, it barely registered a tremor on the electronic dance music Richter scale.

The song, or more accurately, the Harlem Shake dance, only went viral in January 2013 after a four-man ensemble of spandex-clad, pelvic-thrusting individuals uploaded a video of themselves quaking, shaking and krunking like first-time teenage ecstasy users to a sliver of the track.

Thirty-one million views (and counting) and thousands of spin-off spoofs later, the Harlem Shake dance has officially achieved major meme status. Thus, it’s completely unsurprising that Capetonians have conjured up some creative love, gotten into the spirit and reproduced their own takes on the move.

Share some of these Mother City videos with your friends overseas and give the world a bit of Cape Town Harlem Shake flavour. Like it, tweet it and G+ it; just show the globe how we work it on the tip of Africa!
