If you've been online at all in the last two weeks then you've probably caught the Harlem Shake dance videos circulating on YouTube. This infographic capitalizes on the Harlem Shake dance craze spurred by Baauer's trap dance song.

For some, this entire Internet trend is confusing because they remember the Harlem Shake from 2000-2001, when it appeared in several Bad Boy music videos. The latest craze actually has nothing to do with the original Harlem Shake.

This brief infographic provides step by step instructions on the original Harlem Shake, while at the same time making it clear how not to do it. The original shake is all about shoulder locking from side to side in quick progressions. The new Harlem Shake is simply about dressing up in ridiculous outfits and jumping around.
