In case you haven’t been in contact with the outside world for the last, oh, month or so, welcome back! We’ve missed you. Listen, before you start catching up on your emails, bills or even the posts on this site, there’s something you should know about. It’s a little something called the Harlem Shake and, in case you don’t want to read about all the gory details, basically it’s spawned a YouTube craze comprised of innumerable parodies. Basically, it’s this season’s Gangnam Style…except it isn’t.
Anyway, this multimedia fad has spread to such a degree that even the online racing community has embraced it. This example, which comes to us courtesy of Xboxista domesticmango and friends, uses Forza Motorsport 4, the Top Gear Test Track, and a whole gaggle of customized vehicles, including a fairly convincing replica of Ken Block’s 2013 Ford Fiesta. And what’s up with that ending? All we can say is thank Nolan Bushnell for video games. As for the Harlem Shake, we say stand down, haters; it’ll peter out soon enough.
