Now that Gangnam Style is slowly losing its wind, another dance viral video is taking the Internet world by storm: the Harlem Shake.

Originally a bass-pumping song by Baauer, the beat has become an Internet sensation as people have been reenacting their own version of the dance move, which essentially has people breaking out into sudden erratic movements of the body. This particular video on YouTube channel PHILOn Nan has an entire room of guys going wild, jerking and twerking at around 0:15, as though they have caught a dancing disease. It has only been out for five days and already has over 1 million views, which is insane for a 30 second clip.

The Harlem Shake is a fun way to let loose and move around to a crazy beat. Stats for Erratic Dance Viral Videos Trending: Older & Mild
