Here are the best ski resort Harlem Shake videos, now that it’s over
Phew, we can all let out a big sigh of relief that the best-turned-most-overplayed meme in history, the Harlem Shake, is now officially over, thanks to this puppy version.
Many ski resorts got in on the action over the last week, with Copper releasing a solid version in quick order, and just about everyone else jumping on board a short time later.
So here, then, are our favorite ski resort Harlem Shake videos, in order.
1. Copper Mountain Edition
Copper wins for being first. And for ski patroller punching inflatable Bugs Bunny in the face.
2. Aspen/Snowmass Edition
Aspen takes second for spraying around hundreds of dollars worth of delicious champagne.
3. Whistler Blackcomb Edition
Whistler put in the effort to take two whole Peak 2 Peak rides during filming, unlike some other gondola/tram Shake videos we’ve seen where the lift was stopped. Third place for effort and for jumping around 1,400-feet above the ground.
Honorable Mention: Ski Sundown Edition
This isn’t the best Harlem Shake out there, but they did do it with a bit of a twist, and the level of audience participation is impressive.
[Update: This may actually be the official end of Harlem Shake.]
