The Harlem Shake Dance That Prompted an FAA Investigation
Even though the Harlem Shake dance feels like its fizzling its way out of viral meme-dom since it emerged earlier this month on YouTube, some versions are still garnering a good deal of attention – especially when the Feds are called into action.
