Harlem Shakes are a big hit. It is a hit on the internet. Many people film videos with Harlem Shakes. But a Harlem Shake on a World War II tank wasn’t a good idea. Russian police didn’t like this idea. Five people are at the police station now because they danced on a tank and put the video on YouTube.

The Harlem Shake starts with one dancer. After a short time, many dancers come and start to dance too. People use funny things and interesting places for their videos.

Interesting words: war (big and long fight), tank (big machine for a war).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
