If you type in, “Do the Harlem Shake” into the Youtube search bar you’ll be taken to the search results page and the Harlem Shake song will begin playing followed by Youtube doing the Harlem Shake itself.
Heres how to activate it:
1) Go to Youtube.com
2) Type “do the harlem shake” into Youtubes search bar
3) Press enter or click the search button, turn up the volume, sit back and watch Youtube dance for you
You can stop the dancing web page and music at any time by pressing the pause button located in the top-left corner next to the Youtube logo. If you stop the easter egg you will need to refresh the page for it to start again.
“Harlem Shake”, not to be confused with the Hip-Hop dance style, is the title of a 2012 heavy bass instrumental track produced by Baauer.
In February 2013, the song spawned a series of dance videos that begin with a masked individual dancing alone in a group before suddenly cutting to a wild dance party featuring the entire group. The meme grew in popularity and eventually Youtube got in on the fun as well following a similar website feature created by the developers at Moovweb which lead to this easter egg.
