Harlem Shake viral meme: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar requests Harlem Shakers to 'baith jaiye'

New Delhi: The Harlem Shake viral meme is spreading like a wildfire and has even breached mining tunnels under the surface of the earth. 15 Australian miners were fired from their high-paying jobs in an Australian gold mine after a 'Harlem Shake' performance underground was deemed a safety hazard. Even seaching for 'do the Harlem Shake' on YouTube makes the website go tizzy.

While the miners might be shaking it, it is very unlikely that our otherwise unruly MPs will break into a Harlem Shake mid-session but the Speaker of the Lok Sabha is seen in this mixed YouTube video where she appears to be asking the Harlem Shakers in her trademark style to 'baith jaiye' (sit down) and 'zarasa thariye' (stop for a while).
