    That Harlem Shake thing is the stupidest meme ever created. Please let it die a quick death


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 34,823 ✭✭✭✭ smash


    I have no idea what I just watched. But I didn't like it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,985 Dunny


    That is a good ad. I will now not be using Dublin Bus.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,479 ✭✭✭ runawaybishop


    WTF was that. Its that a meme? It should die in a fire.

    This Harlem Shake stuff is getting out of hand....
    Why the heck do people think it's cool to post videos of themselves doing stupid things like this on line.


    First it was those flash mob things, then planking, then milking, gagnam style, and now this.
    I actually feel sorry for anyone who thinks people are interested in seeing them do these things.

    Masked muppets out of control on a Dublin Bus? Just the thing to encourage the populous.

    Ah come on, it's just a joke. It's a bit of light hearted fun that it isn't meant to be taken seriously. Honestly, I've laughed at a good few of these videos. In a depressing world of serious ****e, we have these breaks of fun universal to many nationalities, races and cultures. I don't consider myself stupid, my first love is science and technology, can i not take 30 minutes a day to laugh at something 'stupid'?

    There is some lot of tossers on boards these days, as soon as something becomes popular the keyboards warriors go to war with it. The same people can be found ironically ridiculing hipsters.

    Have to agree and I don't mean gays, they'd have more sense than that. I mean quears in the old sense. :rolleyes:

    Am I the only one who never heard of the Harlem Shake until they saw this clip?


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 166 ✭✭ peterk675


    Can you imagine the old wan that walks up to that :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,963 Meangadh


    I'm usually a fan of weird pointless humour. But I really don't get this Harlem Shake thing at all. Meh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,720 ✭✭✭✭ CianRyan


    Ridicule and insult my intelligence all you want, I find Harlem Shake videos funny.

    Come off it, it's a bunch of knackers annoying other people on a bus doing something loud and crass, not to mention ruining a seat of two by pouring coke all over it.

    Chances are these aren't knackbags, probably a college stunt.

    Do these 2 need to be mutually exclusive?
    Ah it was a college stunt so I am sure they had the coke cleaned from the seats and floor

    I wasn't talking about the video in the OP in particular.

    Christ on a bike, the Harlem Shake is nothing but a laugh lighten the fúck up will ye


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,999 ✭✭✭ BizzyC


    When it's done once it's a laugh....

    Problem with these things is that they multiply and it becomes a case of
    "hey remember that exact thing you've seen 500 times, it's funnier this time cause it's on a bus!!"


    It was the same with those "hitler's reaction" videos.
    Funny at first, very quickly gets over used


  • Registered Users Posts: 947 Shzm


    At least those 'hitler's reaction' vids were clever, and actually funny at first.. some still are amusing.

    Harlem shake however? ****ing stupid. Worse than 'planking'.
