Egyptian Students Arrested For Doing ‘Harlem Shake’ In Underwear
Four Egyptian pharmaceutical students were arrested for public indecency after they stripped down to their underwear to participate in the dance craze known as the “Harlem Shake.” The phenomenon was started when a group of Australian teenagers uploaded a 31-second clip of the dance to YouTube in early February, which has since been viewed more than 17 million times and copied by countless other groups all over the world, similar to last year’s “Gangnam Style” craze.
Egyptian police said the four young men whom they arrested Feb. 23 shocked residents of a middle-class Cairo neighborhood when they removed their clothes and video-taped themselves performing pelvic thrusts. The men have been accused of committing “a scandalous act.”
While the four men arrested doing the “Harlem Shake” in Egypt with its strict public indecency laws were unfortunate to get caught, another group posted videos on YouTube of a successful Harlem Shake in front of the Gaza pyramids. In the YouTube video, one man is dressed in white underwear and a bow tie as he dances while riding a camel.
