Harlem Shake Craze Hits Brookfield

Brookfield has joined the 4,000 videos posted a day craze of the Harlem Shake. Watch a guy do the Shake in a sleeping bag. Do the Harlem Shake!

Move aside Gangnam Style, the new Harlem Shake is here.

Throngs of folks are posting the viral videos on YouTube and other social media, and folks in Brookfield aren't missing out on the action.

In one of the videos, you'll see some guys relaxing on a couch and playing video games. All of the sudden, everyone breaks out dancing in barely there clothing and what looks to be a guy dancing in a sleeping bag. 

In another video you'll see kids doing homework and then...well you know. Harlem Shake!

What began as a simple video of a few guys in costume dancing to a techno beat has quickly turned into one the Internet's latest viral memes.

NPR says 30 second fan videos like these are the reason why DJ Baauer's “Harlem Shake” song is topping the Billboard chart.

If you have your own video and you'd like to show off on Patch, upload it here and we can feature it!
