  Originally, Harlem shake referred to a dance that began in -- yes, excellent guess -- Harlem, New York back in 1981. It has its roots in an Ethiopian dance, "Eskista." You can check out what it looks like on YouTube.   The Harlem shake has been referenced in various songs over the years, including one by Brooklyn-based producer Baauer (Harry Rodrigues). That's the song you're hearing in all forty million "Harlem Shake" videos, even though participants may not actually be dancing the Harlem shake. This video -- featuring four costumed dudes humping air -- claims to be the "original" Harlem video, but it lacks a few of the details particular to the meme. These include the following:  
- At the video beginning, only one person (often masked) is dancing. Anyone else in the room/area are either still or simply not paying attention to the masked dancing.
 
- When the bass drops, everyone else joins in on the dancing, usually accompampanied by costumes and/or props.
