The Harlem Shake Number 1 On iTunes

It's no denying that Youtube is full of exciting trends that bring us together through video form. This week's fab?
The Harlem Shake

After learning about this trend I discovered the true unique-ness about this one unlike any other. For some reason the 'original' video hardly beats the competitor's remake videos in views. In some cases remakes have more views but how is that so?

Above you'll see the true original of this fab. When it first came out I was hearing reports that it was during a snowstorm on the east coast and bored college students decided to make their boring night a more fun one. Those rumors are still not justified.

And yes it is available on iTunes & advertisement has been placed with a link to the iTunes account to purchase on most of the remake's videos with a pre-roll ad.

The highest viewed Harlem Shake is a video produced by the Youtube Network Maker Studios. Probably with a little shouting out from other social site such as Twitter by all who were involved and their already built fan base bumped the video to the top of the search and scored it the most views. Also it's pretty elaborate and they may have just got lucky by doing it early enough. 

Here are some remakes the office The Pet Collective that I work at produced, enjoy.

You will see me in the purple with my papillon Bueller.

And another that if you look closely you can tell it's a photoshopped version from some furry friends.
