How To Make Your Website Do The Harlem Shake

By Megan O'Neill 

Okay, this is starting to get ridiculous.  Everyone is doing the Harlem Shake, from office workers to armies and even T-Pain, and today even websites are jumping on the Harlem Shake bandwagon.  That’s right!  We said even websites are doing the Harlem Shake!  What does that even mean?!  Read on to find out!

StartApp, mobile app monetization and distribution platform, is shaking things up on their website.  When you head over to you’ll be greeted with the now familiar ‘Harlem Shake’ by Baauer and 15 seconds of a dancing ‘Support’ button…followed by 15 seconds of an entire dancing site!

The company posted the link to their Facebook page this morning with the caption “The Harlem Shake is shaking our website! Do the StartApp shake with us.”  The post has just 26 likes and 2 shares so far, but I’ve got a feeling it’s going to see a lot more action over the course of the day.

We can’t exactly screenshot this websitey Harlem Shake goodness, so head over to the site to see it for yourself in action.

But wait…there’s more!  A new tool called Harlem Shake For Website will make your website do the Harlem Shake too.  All you have to do is submit your url and watch your website get its shake on.  Click here to check out doing the Harlem Shake!  As much as I hate to admit it, I’m finding this whole thing ridiculously entertaining and I’ve already Harlem Shake’d like 12 different websites. Make your website do the Harlem Shake and let us know if you enjoy it!

Note: A spokesperson from StartApp informed me that they created their Harlem Shake site in house and not with Harlem Shake for Website.
