I don't understand it either.  But it appears to have peaked.

I think they are kinda funny.  The Miami Heat Harlem Shake video made me laugh.  It's just one of the million internet trends that amuse people and then instantly become lame.  Kinda like Tebowing.  Harmless fads.

It's just another symptom of an aimless generation, with too much time on their hands.

Indeed, if youre an adult and you find that Gangnam style stimulates your mind. Well something is wrong.

Gangnam Style is an actual song by an artist, not a meme. Just that the video became viral. And I think it's catchy.

Harlem Shake is a "meme" and I have no idea about what makes it good. Just one of those silly things that can spur on the internet.

I looked at the original video of Harlem Shake and I found it medioker but this is probably not famous because of the original video but the viral spread itself. Unlike Gangnam..

Because idiotic has become cool. Downside to democracy if you think of it not as a institutional system but as a goal to achieve, meaning you have to find the lowest common denominator which is stupidity given human nature.

Dumbest shit I've ever seen. Up there with planking & the rest of the stupid shit people make up in an attempt to be cool on the internet.

Tbombing however, never gets old. Can laugh all night long.

Hope this helps.

this is the whole myspace/Facebook "look at me I am cool also" crowd mentality.

every couple of months some "new and hip" fad comes along that the "main stream" latches on to and then prompt runs it into the ground and totally destroys.

See gangstam/MC hammer can't touch etc

What I don't get is this. In each harlem shake video, it's just a bunch of people dancing. How is this any different than going to a club where people cant dance either. Am I missing something?

it is all about the juxtaposition of the calm beginning to the chaotic end.

Dude, I agree...I am more interested in how our society and media reacts to the latest fad/trend/movement.

for example..have you noticed that everyone on Facebook has turned into a philosopher or religious prodigy? Everyone now copies/shares/repost religious quotes without even knowing or caring what they mean.  The world is filled with sheep that lack independent thought.

Agreed, gangnam was actually a good kpop song, and brought insight into korea pop music. To the point kpop will never top it.
Gangnam style is like a modern day stayin alive. Where it will actually be remembered by all walks of life around the world.

Harlem shake is just a joke, that is far far to calculated to be genuinely funny. It's made for the kind of people that thinks dane cook is funny.

The reason there even compared is puzzling.

Don't get me started on Dane Cook. He is an okay actor but i hate his standup, which he borrows from Louis CK, who does it a million times better.
