New meme alert! Here’s how to do the Harlem Shake

You will need (a) a helmet (b) friends and (c) a room.

HERE’S THE STORY: six days ago, a group of bored skateboarders were sitting around doing not very much.

So they decided to make a video.

Its essential ingredients: (1) a person in a helmet, dancing around on their own while others sit around looking bored, and (2) the 15-second mark.

Office workers are doing it:

First person to send us their own Harlem Shake video gets a free duck suit.*
