With over 12,000 variations uploaded so far, the latest YouTube trend sweeping the globe is easily the Harlem Shake. And Friday, YouTube was treated to a great new spoof of the pop culture craze -- this one called the "Homer Shake".
The producers of 'The Simpsons' provided their hilarious take on the Harlem Shake by personalizing it for none other than everyone's favorite cartoon dad, Homer Simpson. The YouTube parody was uploaded on March 1, and in less than 48 hours, it has reached nearly 4 million views.
Without even seeing the title of the video, the different bass melody is instantly apparent as it starts off with innocent little Maggie head banging in a helmet. And it wouldn't be a true "Homer Shake" without Homer decked out in nothing but his underwear.
Unfamiliar with the Harlem Shake? Don't be confused with the original version that was popularized in the 1980's by Harlem resident, Al B.
The Harlem Shake going viral today is based on a song track released by Baauer in May 2012. Without an accompanying video, the catchy beat didn't have specific dance moves. Two groups are credited with creating the Harlem Shake sensation -- DizastaMusic's (over 26 million views) and TheSunnyCoastSkate (over 18 million views). These two videos have spawned a huge following that has some media outlets comparing the Harlem Shake to Psy's Gangnam Style.
