Purchase does the Harlem Shake

A meme is an idea, behavior or style that spreads 
from person to person within a culture.

THE HARLEM SHAKE is a 30-second video that begins with one person (wearing a 
helmet or mask) dancing to the music alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people 
not paying attention or seemingly unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, 
the video jump cuts to the entire crowd doing a crazy dance.
