YouTube’s ‘Do the Harlem Shake’ Easter Egg

Tired of looking through Harlem Shake videos on YouTube? Google is here again to keep things interesting and probably make you smile.

Remember, your browser should be Chrome or Mozilla. My Opera browser is not doing this Easter Egg.

Type “Do the Harlem Shake” into a YouTube search query. What you’ll get is YouTube’s own rendition of the Harlem Shake — with thumping music, spinning panels, and the whole page shaking to the beat.

Or you can click this link "Do the Harlem Shake"

(Take couple of minute to try it. Then, please, come back.)

Google is no amateur at spicing up its sites with amusing so-called Easter Eggs. Who could forget “Do a Barrel Roll” or “Zerg Rush“? But with today’s YouTube Easter Egg, Google displays a more broad sense of humor, possibly appealing to folks beyond the geek mold. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several weeks, you’ve probably heard of the Harlem Shake as the Billboard-topping phenomenon, or, as others might put it, that thing that happened after Gangnam Style.

Google promises to keep the Google Doodles and Easter Eggs coming.
