If you – unlike us – were out celebrating your Valentine’s evening with a certain special someone, then woe to you, readers, for missing The Daily Show’s take on the latest viral-video dance fad to sweep the Interwebs: the Harlem Shake.
Since last week, thousands of iterations of the dance have surfaced online. From My Little Pony to the Kardashians, the UGA Men’s Swim and Dive team to Today, everyone’s getting in on the trend. The basics: Take DJ Baauer’s 2012 Harlem Shake remix, add one person pelvic-thrusting, writhing, or performing any other vaguely uncomfortable dance move while the rest pointedly ignore him, wait for the music to really kick in, then everybody dance! Or at least that’s usually how the story goes. Unless you’re Jon Stewart, that is. Check out the video below, courtesy of last night’s Moment of Zen:
Oh, Stewart! We’d Harlem Shake with you any day.
