The Meme Moves to a Digital Domain

If you’ve spent any time lounging around on the Internet this past month, you may know about the Harlem Shake craze going around.  Simply put, the meme features one person dancing around for 10 seconds, with an entire group joining in thereafter.  It’s all the to the tune of Baauer’s Harlem Shake,and it’s all not to be confused with the original Harlem Shake from the 1980s, known as the Albee.

The shake is sweeping Internet circuits, so it was only a matter of time before the dance was adapted to the gaming world.  During February, produced a short video that features Sonic as well as some other video game icons performing the Harlem Shake, including Bowser, Earthworm Jim, and Mickey Mouse.  You can take a look at it below.

If nothing else, it’s a nice way to unwind after a long week…if the meme is your sort of thing.  And it still shows Sonic, for all franchise’s ups and downs of late, can find a way to be cool with what’s cool today.
