(WTVR) – Want to learn how to dance the Harlem Shake?

Remember Gangnam Style?

Park Jae-sang (Psy) is a millionaire now because of the money the YouTube smash of last year made off of advertisements.

In 2013 there is finally a dance sensation that gives the power to the people.

Dubbed ‘The Harlem Shake’, it takes its name from a song released last year by the musician Baauer.

A clip of the song is used for a half-minute video, but wait for it because hilarity ensues around :15 seconds in.

What starts as the spasms of a lone dancer wearing a helmet quickly becomes a true ‘Harlem Shake’.

Once the beat drops the fun begins.

So far a multitude of variations of the gyrating masses have popped up online, ranging from firefighters to storm troopers.

The beauty of the dance craze lies in its accessibility.

So how will you do the Harlem Shake?
