Bboy Spot has a wonderful compendium of instructional vidoes on breaking from the 1980s, featuring such luminaries as Carlton Banks (from Fresh Prince of Belair), Dena Rizzo (?) and Vin Diesel. To see how far views of hip hop have evolved, check out this report:

Vlado Footwear jumps on the crowded bandwagon with a short Harlem Shake video -- this one with 8 Flavahz (ABDC Season 7).Thanks Tafari!

For those who don't know (or for our readers who weren't old enough in 2001), the original Harlem Shake dance goes back to G Dep's "Let's Get It" music video featuring P Diddy. As you can see, the original dance nearly has nothing to do with the viral videos we've been seeing as of late. Power 105.1, a New York based hip-hop radio station, recently shot this video during their morning show featuring the Original Harlem Shakers. So after watching this, you can obnoxiously make the comment, "You're doing it wrong", on any other Harlem Shake videos you see. From 1051BreakfastClub YouTube.

The first and second place winners have members from America's Best Dance Crew: Rhythm City (ABDC Season 4) took the gold, Static Noyze (ABDC Season 5) took silver, and Generation X took Bronze. Rhythm City's reward for winning: a trip to compete in the 2013 Hip Hop International this summer. Congratulations to all!

Everyone's seen 'em by now. Everyone and their mothers are making Harlem Shake videos. Personally, I'm starting to get played out by them, but everyone else loves 'em. Here are our season 6 champions partaking in the global phenomenon in THREE separate Harlem Shake videos. My favorite is the 747 and Millie's car video:
