Well these army soldiers seem to be having fun doing the Harlem Shake.

At least it's the Swedish army.

That's still my favorite because it opens up differently. And it's like "wait, are these all actual soldiers taking part in this?"

The disease is spreading.

How ironic, that after years and years of fearing either a war against the machines, or a zombie apocalypse, the world would in the end finally succumb to... this.

It is both a meme and a dance movement based in Harlem.

Speaking of, the citizens of Harlem did not take kindly to finding out that their dance style was being mocked, or at least that's how they're interpreting it, it looks like.

If a bunch of idiots went to the streets and acted like retards while inciting my area's name, I might feel a little annoyed too.

And yeah, Gangnam Style was pretty cool, and it lasted for a long time. Harlem Shake was cool... for a while.

It was a joke, I hate these hyper accelerated dance fads that take over the world for all of 3 weeks and then a new one immediately takes its place. It's worse than the macarena ever was.

You still would be in your happy bubble, I didn't really specify anything about the meme. Just that it shares a name with a dance style, and that the people who are familiar with the actual dance style hate the meme.

But if you insist. :c

Gagnam style was around way longer than a month, but I get your point
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."
