Harlem Shake

Consider the Following

Holy Crap! The White House Is Downton Abbey. [VIDEO]

Besides keeping up with Iris Ophelia’s Downton Abbey/The Sims 3 experiment (catch up and read Part 8 here), I’ve mostly had the British series out of my mind. That’s mostly due to me being über annoyed with the Season 3 finale but that’s neither here nor there. The YouTube account for The Chris Matthews Show posted this video a while back which compares Downton with the White House. Something I never would have thought of before but that now makes perfect sense.

And if you need another Downton injection, might I suggest hitting the jump for an eye-opening experience?



The Simpsons Attempt The Harlem Shake, Fail Miserably [VIDEO]

I love The Simpsons, really I do, and we don’t normally post things on the site to knock them but I figured some people might get a kick out of this. The show creators decided to do their own take on the Harlem Shake, called “The Homer Shake,” for their couch gag this week. It doesn’t quite work. But I do give them credit for trying to be relevant, they aren’t know for being able to pull together current items like this because of their animation schedules, and because Lisa is reading a book titled, “Last to the Party.”

I guess this means this whole thing is done now, right?

Mmmmm, Lynchian. He’s even holding a damn fine cup of coffee.

(I wanted to post this before the meme reaches its expiration date. Did I make it?)

The Cast Of Star Wars Does The Harlem Shake [VIDEO]

The Harlem Shake is a dance that originated in, you guess it, Harlem and should probably not be confused with what has now become an internet meme. The meme doesn’t really have anything to do with the original dance and is more an experiment in how ridiculous you can be. Well, it basically started this month and soared in popularity, so much so we’ve now got a Star Wars version to watch. Be sure to keep an eye on the Stormtrooper at the very end.

How would you like to see the same concept done with Star Wars action figures instead? We’ve got that after the jump.
