Not much dancing in this video (at least until the end), but we want to congratulate this pair of wonderful dancers and wonderful people!

Not Another Harlem Shake Video! | The REAL REAL REAL Harlem Shake

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.
