Long Live the Short-lived Thing

In a discussion this morning the topic became about how explosive the "Harlem Shake" video meme has been. From an army brigade being punished for their post to an austere, minimalist software interpretation, just as this lastest Internet thing looks like it's burning out, a new version emerges. There are now so many on Youtube, it's hard to choose just one (but I did - because it follows the formula so faithfully). Fader magazine traced the story of the track and first video but Google's Trend generator do-hickey really shows it in context. Long live the Internet Meme. The Internet Meme is dead.
