YouTube, Harlem Shake Easter Egg


YouTube is ready to Harlem Shake. "That's not the real Harlem Shake!" that buzzkill in the corner protests. Yeah, we know. We get it. Go kill the vibe somewhere else now, please.

The home base for the latest viral sensation has joined in on the fun: When you search "do the Harlem Shake" on YouTube, the site will do just that. The little YouTube logo dances by itself to Baauer's Billboard #1 hit and then all hell breaks loose. Good luck clicking on the link to watch those hot swimmers do the Shake now!!! (Just kidding, give the site a second and all will return to normal).

It's an Easter egg along the lines of "do a barrel roll" on Google or hovering over the Zeitgeist colors to watch the little Android dude do "Gangnam Style."

In other news, the Harlem Shake is under federal investigation for possibly violating FAA regulations being too awesome.
