Reuters Playboy jumped to the bandwagon and released their own version of the Harlem Shake dance early this month featuring the magazine’s Playmates.
The video ran for around 30 seconds just like the other Harlem Shake videos and attracted thousands of views. It is also included in most lists of best Harlem Shake videos.
The girls are dressed in normal clothes at first then changed into their trademark sexy bunny suits. The men on the video must be so lucky to have sexy women dancing, or simply flailing, with the song.
On the other hand, Harlem Shake is a bass-heavy hip-hop track with almost no lyrics beyond a few samples. The song was released in May 2012 as a free download. But it got more popular this month as thousands of fans uploaded videos of themselves dancing along to the song are posted on YouTube.
Thus, the song debuted at Number 1 at the Billboard Hot 100 after it takes an evolutionary step by incorporating YouTube plays into its formula.
