For the past two weeks or so, I have been living under a rock. When I pushed the rock away, and found the nearest iPad, I learned about the new dance craze meme called the Harlem Shake. Then I spent the next hour LMAO watching one video after another.
With anything popular, there’s controversy, as to who invented the meme. Filthy Frank or TSCS. Filthy Frank seems to have pioneered the use of the song, use of costumes and the dance moves, but TSCS made it funnier by first, having one person dance, and then everyone dances.
It’s like this. You were born. Then your grandfather comes along and says “that kid was my idea — if it wasn’t for me, he wouldn’t be alive”. But then you father is like “sure, if wasn’t for you neither of us would be alive, but if it weren’t for me, the kid definitely would not be alive”. You are the meme. Your grandfather is Filthy Frank, and your dad is TSCS. And you’re all wonderful.
