First there were flash mobs. Then everybody was doing it Gangnam style. So what's the latest trend to go viral?
It's the 30-second Harlem Shake. Featuring costumed, convulsive dancers, it just went viral this month on YouTube—and it's taken hold in Elmhurst.
On Friday, Feb. 15, a group of Elmhurst crazies—er, uh, perfectly sane folks—were recruited on Facebook to meet at Nu Crepes in Elmhurst to make a little video. Nu Crepes owner Niall Martin and his family, including mom and dad, along with locals of all ages, broke out into the "spontaneous" Harlem Shake.
When we first wrote about the restaurant's opening last September, we said Nu Crepes would be "shaking things up" on Schiller Court. We had no idea how right we were.
There is really no way to describe Nu Crepes' Harlem Shake, so hesitate no more. Click "play" on the attached video and find out how much fun was being had at the little creperie last weekend.
