WATCH: 'Harlem Shake' Video Craze Comes to Stony Brook

Videos made by Stony Brook students are among thousands of Harlem Shake videos on YouTube.

Goodbye "Gangnam Style," hello "Harlem Shake." The popular video craze has exploded in the past few days. A YouTube search brings up more than 26,700 results for the latest video craze – including several made at Stony Brook University, one of which has more than 11,000 hits. USA Today reports Harlem Shake video uploads have skyrocketed in the past few days — more than 4,000 are being posted a day.

So what exactly is the "Harlem Shake"? According to UPI.com, the roughly 30-second video productions typically start with just one dancer gyrating to DJ Baauer's 2012 "Harlem Shake" soundtrack.
