This Harlem Shake meme going around the web has to be one of the oddest. Some of the videos are admittedly worth a chuckle, but most are just head-scrathingly mind-numbingly idiotic to the point of wanting to weep for humanity.

If you’re a fan of Steve Martin, stand-up, viral videos, or anything that’s ahead of its time, you’ll be thrilled that somebody put this old promo online. Steve Martin made this for the Warner Bros. Records marketing team, to motivate them with the promise of winning one whole dollar for selling the most copies of his 1978 album “Wild And Crazy Guy”.
