The USA National Trampoline Team’s Harlem Shake Edition

You’ve never seen the USA National Trampoline Team shake like this.

The funny thing is, this isn’t the Harlem Shake.

The original dance — which has roots going back to the 1980s — picked up popularity when Harlem rapper G-Dep released a music video with P. Diddy called “Let’s Get It” in 2001. The video featured kids doing the dance, which includes intense shoulder-shaking and, often, the tugging of a t-shirt.

YouTube has been flooded with new versions of the Harlem Shake. One thing all of these videos have is the first dancer wearing a motorcycle helmet and dancing alone while the rest of the group is minding their own business. The next clip is the entire group dancing out of control. They’re typically in settings where dancing is not the norm and they seem out of place.

Athletes, celebrities, animals, mascots, and so many other types of people have shared their versions of the Harlem Shake on YouTube.
