If you fancy yourself an Internet-savvy person, you’ll know that the Harlem Shake is absolutely everywhere nowadays. It’s been played on the radio and is even sitting at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 songs for the second week in a row. We’re not sure what it is about the song, but we can’t help but act like complete idiots whenever we hear it being played.
Searching for Harlem Shake videos on YouTube has resulted in over 200,000 results acting completely nuts while the song is playing. But inputting the term “do the harlem shake” into YouTube will result in a completely different thing.
Google is no stranger to hiding easter eggs in a number of their services, and the “do the harlem shake” search is the latest such easter egg. The search results in the entire YouTube page doing the Harlem Shake, which moves around as crazily as most people do when they move to the popular song. It may not be as cool as Google’s “Let it snow” easter egg, or “do a barrel roll,” but it’s still a fun little easter egg nonetheless.
