'Harlem Shake' lands in Southwest Florida

Move over “Gangnam Style.” Here comes the “Harlem Shake.” The latest YouTube video trend has made its way to Southwest Florida from local businesses to Collier County classrooms.

“Harlem Shake,” a dance track created by Brooklyn producer Baauer, recently shot to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, thanks to the millions of 30-second viral “Harlem Shake” dance clips on YouTube.

The videos all start in the same fashion — a lone dancer grooving away in the middle of an oblivious crowd. The music slowly builds and then, boom, it’s a dance party. Costumes, props, masks and even school mascots suddenly appear as the crowd is transformed into a crazy dance party all looking for 30 seconds of Web fame.

Here is a collection of locally-produced “Harlem Shake” videos from: Barron Collier High School, Fade Away Barbershop, Florida Gulf Coast University, Gulf Coast High School, Lely High School (Jane Donovan’s class), Naples High School, Rockin’ the Bay staff and Salon Bellezza.
