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?
