    I was listening to Baauer last year and the original video hardly got any views (300k) now everywhere I look I see this Harlem Shake.

    My bad I was uber tired last days/weeks and missed the viral of it.

    From where did it appeared? I think it's one week old the viral of Harlem, isn't it?

    Thanks

    A couple of videos of companies doing the Harlem Shake went viral and it appears to have just snowballed. It's everywhere at the moment.

    I keep asking myself the same question though.. As for now, nearly every Harlem Shake edition has like 5m+ views. It's crazy o_O
