(The Root) — The Harlem Shake is back once again, and this time it's a viral global meme. You might remember it from G. Dep's 2001 video "Let's Get It," in which Diddy and Black Rob appeared, although the dance dates back to the 1980s.

  • In case the '80s were before your time, here's a compilation video of the original Harlem Shake. Just so you know, this is how it's supposed to be done.

  • Now let's take it underwater.

  • Next stop, the unemployment line.
  • Uh, what's up with the stack of pancakes?

  • Cutest senior moment since Rep. John Lewis did it "gangnam style."
  • Final stop: Capetown, South Africa?
