VIDEO: Harlem Shake fever hits Somerset
As addictive as Gangnam Style, the Harlem Shake is the new dance video craze, which has the added attraction that everyone can make their own.
The first video to Baauer's Harlem Shake was uploaded by video blogger Filthy_Frank as recently as 30th January of four latex-clad people dancing to the track.
This paved the way for numerous groups to upload their own interpretations of the 30-second art form and it seems Somerset is just as vulnerable to its enticing charms as we proudly showcase this version by Jake Morgan, Jack Paterson & Bobo Ngema from Yeovil.
With over 123,000 versions now on YouTube, we are ready to bet a pumping Power Ranger to a shimmying Storm Trooper there are loads of Somerset Harlem Shake stars out there and we're giving you your chance to shine.
HOW TO FILM YOURS
The classic v2 form is 14 seconds of build-up where all but one person acts normally while the other, (often wearing something on their head), performs some rhythmic limbering. Then with an abrupt video cut as the bass drops, everyone busts their extreme moves wearing intriguing costume. The last two seconds are in slow motion and there you have it. Of course, this is all subject to interpretation.
If you're filming on an iPhone, Lumify is a free editing App with a step-by-step guide, otherwise, your usual video editor could easily cope with the requirements.
