We have to be honest, we had no idea what a Harlem Shake was before seeing this video. So when we initially viewed these scenes of masked people dancing at major landmarks, we just assumed that it was another group of foreigners embarrassing themselves by recording their random acts of gaijin play around the streets of Tokyo.

Our immediate reaction? “Harlem Shake. Huh, that’s a thing.”
