Tired of looking through Harlem Shake videos on YouTube? Google is here again to keep things interesting and probably make you smile.

Type “Do the Harlem Shake” into a YouTube search query. What you’ll get is YouTube’s own rendition of the Harlem Shake — with thumping music, spinning panels, and the whole page shaking to the beat.

(We’ll give you a minute to try it.  Then, please, come back.)

Google is no amateur at spicing up its sites with amusing so-called Easter Eggs.  Who could forget “Do a Barrel Roll” or “Zerg Rush“? But with today’s YouTube Easter Egg, Google displays a more broad sense of humor, possibly appealing to folks beyond the geek mold. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several weeks, you’ve probably heard of the Harlem Shake as the Billboard-topping phenomenon, or, as others might put it, that thing that happened after Gangnam Style.

Google promises to keep the Google Doodles and Easter Eggs coming.
