Harlem Not Impressed by the Shake
We all know about the Harlem Shake already. Our fellow CCNY Campus writer, Bryant, wrote about it a couple of days ago here. But it turns out that the people of Harlem are not at all pleased with the new dance.
Schlepp Films went straight to the streets of Harlem to ask people what they thought of these videos. Most responses were outright funny like one person saying “That’s not the shake, no good.” While others even claiming the new shake is making fun of the original dance. Watch the people of Harlem react here. What do you think of the Harlem Shake? Is it funny or disrespectful?
Clark Retirement Community takes part in the Harlem Shake trend.
