The Harlem Shake, born in 1981 as a dance that involves pivoting the shoulder in weird directions, was murdered today. It was 32.
Having enjoyed a recent surge in popularity on YouTube, the meme was killed by the campaign of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) when it posted this video, the most normal part of which is a pink tutu-wearing man.
The Harlem Shake is survived by "Y U NO Guy," the Obama "not bad" face, and that dumb horsey dance.
In lieu of flowers, politicians should learn that they all look like this (barely SFW) when attempting to make viral videos.
