Egyptian students arrested for doing `Harlem Shake`
New York: Four Egyptian students were arrested in Cairo after filming themselves doing the wildly popular Harlem shake in their underwear.
Police spotted the semi-naked students doing public pelvic thrusts in a middle-class Cairo neighbourhood. An angry crowd tried to stop the students doing erratic dance moves, reports the New York Daily News.
According to an official, due to Egypt`s strict public indecency laws, the group is accused of committing a "scandalous act".
A larger team of youth, along with one meandering camel, managed to film all 30-seconds of the dance, despite being harassed by police throughout the shoot.
The video starts with a lone dancer in the middle of the frame, dancing this time in front of the iconic Giza pyramids. His friend walks by behind him, leading a camel and yawning at the normalcy of it all. But when the beat drops, the video explodes into a crazy mess of costumed, gyrating young people.
A half-naked man shows up in this video too, in his white undies, gold hat and black bowtie.
The Daily Beast traced the viral dance craze back to a YouTube video posted by a group of Australian teenagers on February 2. The original video has been viewed almost 16 million times.
