electricity wont be lead in clear water, so unless the man sweats a ton, or Grim throws salt in the water first, this is actually useless

look it up OP

Holy **** , since when did we state having distilled water as tap water!? It's got flouride, calcium, a minute amount of chlorine, and traces of other minerals and compounds in household tap water. It is not pure by any means.

youre dumb, because 99.9% chances are that the piping has some salts in it, and i am yet to see a house where theres 100% water from the taps

The guy who falls out of it is hillarious. Especially when he gets up and starts running around with the flag.
The guy who is headbutting the wall is pretty fun too.

Not trying to be mean, but that's the Norwegian Army one, so I wouldn't necessarily think he was a kid.

Well they be in training camp where ages usually vary from 18 to 24.

A person who is in the age of 40 sumthing,usually calls people those age still "kids".

And ofc they act as grown soldiers do in the training camps.During weekends when in the company/block and the staff was not around it was a way to blow off some steam.

Kinda like gangnamstyle, if it goes global and everybody likes it, we get a little annoyed about it being everywhere. So by our instinct, we hate it. We want it burned down to a normal level, it doesn't deserve this much fame.   
   
It's like when you found out what harlem shake was you listened to it a couple times and thought &quot; oh, this is cool&quot; and kept on looking at more videos of it.   
   
Then the next day, your annoying friend is being all &quot; CHECK THIS OUT, WOW HOLY 			****		 HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?&quot;  and spams every minute of your day with it. And it's not only him, it's like your whole goddamn school or something is going 			*******		 about it.  Well not everyone are such hateful people but  I'd say the most of us are.     
   
I personally am sick of this new popular trend going on here. I just want everything to be on a normal level like it used to.

Then people start doing covers of it (The Simpsons recently did one...It's horrible) and you basically see it everywhere you go: newspapers, tv shows, youtube (obviously, hundreds of covers of that thing is on there), Funnyjunk etc. It spreads like wildfire

Because it's cancer. Why don't people like 9gag or rage comics? Because it kills the ******* internet. All these ****** parodies are so **** and get so many views for no reason, it's okay though, it already died with the new cancer goat videos.
#250 to #30 - anon (03/05/2013) [-]
I honestly don't see why people seem to like the Harlem Shake.






it's just a temporary fad that will soon die and everyone will look back on it in disgust because it's nothing special
User avatar #57 to #30 - oceanfrank (03/05/2013) [-]
I'll tell you why. My whole recommended section of Youtube was once all Harlem Shake videos, true story. Not only that, I decided to click on one to see if it was funny and I was on the iPhone Youtube App. The ad was a PepsiMax Harlem Shake for the Harlem Shake video I was about to watch, THAT is why I personally hate it.

I don't like it because there's a real dance called the harlem shake and this one is kind of just a retarded version where u hump **** and are generally unfunny in my opinion.

Well I hate it because I had a seizure once and instead of helping me these ******* took out their phones and started recording.
User avatar #285 to #30 - kjeks (03/05/2013) [-]
I just hate it because I personally don't find it funny at all, yet I can't really seem to avoid it, since it's pretty much everywhere. It's like a song you think is 'okay' that is played on the radio 7 times a day, I guess.
#262 to #30 - anon (03/05/2013) [-]
because it was never funny but still gains the attention of the public
User avatar #38 to #30 - Tvfreek (03/05/2013) [-]
I just cant stand how it sounds, otherwise theyre mostly funny.
User avatar #181 to #30 - gingershavetrolls (03/05/2013) [-]
It's funny until it becomes saturated. It's just like, how many Cinnamon Challenges did you watch before they just stopped being funny?

I think it's funny, but I can't stand the intro. It would be funnier if I didn't sit through 20 seconds of build up for 5 seconds of funny.
User avatar #69 to #41 - Faz (03/05/2013) [-]
Without the intro build up it would be just a bunch of people being frantic, that would be **** .

personally I dont hate it. But it does get annoying when people overuse it.
#312 to #30 - Hidnight (03/06/2013) [-]
Because when an inside joke is taken out of context by people who don't understand it, it will ruin the joke because it is socially redefined by those who don't understand it. True this is a video, but for the people who came up with it are appalled by what the world has took it too.
User avatar #44 to #30 - extravix (03/05/2013) [-]
Just like Gangnam Style. It got old fast because it seems like more and more swagfags are taking over the internet.
#310 to #30 - iamphoenix (03/06/2013) [-]

for the same reason that we hate yolo, swag, justin beiber, one direction, 9gag e.t.c.

Because stupid people likes it
User avatar #301 to #298 - cantfindausername (03/05/2013) [-]
Say you have a favorite soda.
You find out some stupid person (yolo, swaggot, Justin Beiber, One Direction, 9gag) loves the same soda.
You now have to find another soda because a stupid person likes the soda you drink.
You're silly.

I have a song that i like
I find that some stupid person (yolo, swaggot, Justin Beiber, One Direction, 9gag) loves the song and sings it a lot
I have now associated the song with said stupid person
When ever i hear song i think of stupid person
I now hate song
I also hate stupid person
User avatar #306 to #304 - cantfindausername (03/05/2013) [-]
Don't listen to it after a while and when the stupid person eventually stops singing it, go back to it and it will be great.
#302 to #30 - cantfindausername (03/05/2013) [-]
It's been played over and over again. It just got old. At first it was like, "Uh... What's happe- WHAT!? WHAT'S HAPPENING!" After several showings of the same thing the effect diminishes and gets annoying.
Also:
I see posts saying "It's popular" and "Because hipsters." I thought that was contradictory. Just saying.
#283 to #30 - anon (03/05/2013) [-]
probably because alot of people cant stand that people are not doing the realy harlem shake and are just jumping up and down like retards
User avatar #297 to #30 - imnotkickthecat (03/05/2013) [-]
because hipsters.
#233 to #30 - anon (03/05/2013) [-]
Its simple, the Harlem Shake was a bandwagon that people liked to jump on. Now, like any bandwagon, hating the said bandwagon is the new bandwagon.
User avatar #278 to #30 - milomcrobbie (03/05/2013) [-]
My answer is that I don't hate the harlem shake, it's just that on my tablet on youtube it fills up the whole page of most viewed, instead of the usual videos. It's just kind of irritating really.
User avatar #120 to #30 - buttinspecter (03/05/2013) [-]

#72 - Faz (03/05/2013) [-]
People don't hate the Harlem shake, people hate the fad that is the Harlem shake and that its overused and is always the same/incredibly similar. People will always start to hate a fad once the fad becomes overdone which the Harlem shake has been incredibly overdone now. I actually really liked the first Harlem shake video i watched (the one by sourcefed) and still enjoyed the next like 10 i watched but after 2 days of constantly getting messages off people linking to Harlem shakes, seeing FJ posts of Harlem shakes and even having pretty much all the recommended vids on youtube be Harlem shake videos i then hated the fad too.

I wonder why people hate the harlem shake , I can understand if people in your life are pushing it in your face or some **** like that but really it doesnt affect most of us other than the internet videos.

And we can just avoid watching those , anyway they;re good fun to do with a group of friends when you have nothing else to do.
#292 to #40 - kjeks (03/05/2013) [-]
Well, it's just that some people, like me, don't find them funny at all. I've watched a few, but.. I just don't see the funny in it. The first one I watched, I thought ".. Well alright then.". After seeing it everywhere on youtube, in the comment sections (hey u guys should do the harlem shake even though you make gaming videos only!! xD"), and now on funnyjunk. And hey, I like the original Gangnam style.

And it's a bit annoying that people are so desperate to be part of something popular all the time. They both misuse and overuse it just to get attention. And a bunch of people are claiming to have made the original video, when they didn't. It's not the popularity that bothers me, it's the whole "hey let's do what everyone else is doing so we can be funny too" mentality.

Sincerely
Your cynical internet guy

That is exactly the same way I react, because every time I go on FJ after seeing something that I like (aka the Harlem Shake) suddenly one person hates the trend, and then everybody jumps on board the bandwagon. Seriously.... **** off.

The argument is that it's an overused, simple, unentertaining way to make unoriginal videos.

But I like them! Me and my friends are doing this the next time they come over......so....you know....I'm never going to do this.
