YouTube Joins The “Harlem Shake” Movement With Easter Egg

The “Harlem Shake” is the dance/song sweeping the nation — and now YouTube. The popular dance features a song titled “Harlem Shake” by Bauer that features tame music that has a quick switch of tempo when the beat drops. In the Harlem Shake videos, it’s customary to have one person (possibly masked) dancing with everyone else in the scene not paying attention. When the bass hits and the beat drops everyone in the scene begins to dance (and dress) crazily.

When you head to YouTube and do a search for “Do The Harlem Shake” you’ll activate an easter egg. At first, the YouTube symbol begins dancing and the song by Bauer starts to play. Once the beat drops, all the results start shaking wildly:

Head over to Google and try for yourself.
