Egyptian Students Arrested For Doing Harlem Shake

Four Egyptian pharmacy students were arrested in Cairo for dancing in their underwear while recording a(nother) ‘Harlem Shake’ video for YouTube. While the charge could have been cultural delinquency — not knowing when you’re late to a trend that’s since passed — the students were accused of committing a ‘scandalous act’ by dancing suggestively in a middle-class neighborhood of the city. Egyptian authorities obviously have tough public decency standards.

Like the zillion other ‘Harlem Shake’ clips on YouTube, the video (embedded above) features a single dancer thrusting to the music at the beginning of the song — all in front of the pyramids at Giza. He is then joined by other gyrating dancers once the beat of the song drops.

The students must hope for a sympathetic jury. The now played-out craze allegedly got started with a video made by Australian teens earlier this month. It has been viewed more than 16 million times. Less than 30 days later, anyone with an internet connection doesn’t want to see another Harlem shake until after Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ reunion tour in 2025.
