Video: Game Shows do the “Harlem Shake”
The newest YouTube sensation is the Harlem Shake. If you haven’t seen it it’s a short video where someone dances for about 10 seconds while everyone else is frozen around them. After that every one else essentially convulses with confetti, props, costumes, and other things. I wouldn’t be bringing it up if, inexplicably, two game shows didn’t jump into the Harlem Shake trend yesterday. Both Deal or No Deal and Wipeout released videos showcasing their moves. Both are funny and “must watch” for different reasons. While Wipeout‘s is nice to see for the return of the very-much-missed Jill Wagner, I think Noel Edmund’s dancing on the Deal or No Deal video wins the day. Amusingly the Pilgrims and the Wings couldn’t quite grasp the concept of staying still, but Noel played along brilliantly.
Take a look. Pretty funny stuff. The ball’s in your court, Trebek.
UPDATE: Even Swedish Millionaire is doing it. Come on, America! Get with it!
