Here are the best ski resort Harlem Shake videos, now that it’s over

February 20th, 2013 by

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.

So that does it, the Harlem Shake meme is dead, we never want to hear that song again. Please carry on with lazer cats and skiers getting broke off.

[Update: This may actually be the official end of Harlem Shake.]
