The 10 Best Video Game-Themed Harlem Shake Videos

By now you’ve probably have either heard of the Harlem Shake or seen a gazillion versions of this viral Internet meme. A hip hop move that has been around for quite some time, it has gone mainstream this month when YouTube user Filthy Frank posted a short, funny clip of the dance two weeks ago.

This is a simple recipe of a costumed, lone dancer rocking to the beat followed by a room full of crazy gyrations by as many people as can get in the shot. This has lead to more imitators and homages than you can shake your groove thing at. In fact, our parent company, Break Media, has posted one as well.

But some of the best Harlem Shake videos out there are, of course, video game related. Without further ado, here’s the best ones that have come across our desk.
