What do an Oxford Librarian, a school teacher and a group of miners in Western Australia have in common?
Answer: they’ve all been sacked for performing the Harlem Shake at work.
The Harlem Shake, m’lud, is the latest You Tube craze in which groups of people dance in a wild, unco-ordinated fashion, in fancy dress, to a piece of music by a fellow called Baauer. It’s not to be confused with the song “Harlem Shuffle” by the Rolling Stones, a band with whom you might be familiar m’lud. Yes, you may have seen it at the English National Ballet, m’lud.
