Colbert's Harlem Shake Disappointing

Posted By on Fri, Feb 15, 2013 at 12:30 PM

I'd actually been waiting for Stephen Colbert to do the Harlem Shake ever since I saw Jon Stewart's version of it.

Stewart's "getting ditched" twist to the newest trending "dance" is pretty funny. But I've always been a little more entertained by The Colbert Report than by the Daily Show.

So I was really disappointed when I saw this video:

I'll give Colbert credit for doing the actual Harlem Shake. You know, the one where you pop your shoulders side to side and swing your arms. Everyone else seems to think the Harlem Shake is a pelvic thrust for some weird reason.

But Colbert's version of the Harlem Shake is literally just him awkwardly dancing by himself then people joining him. I expected some weird props or a twist to it like Stewart's. I'm not sure what was up with the making of this video but Colbert could have definitely given his fans something much funnier than this generic Harlem Shake.
