‘The Simpsons’ Do ‘The Harlem Shake’ About Two Weeks Too Late

Today brings with it sad news that The Harlem Shake is still a thing, apparently, meaning that beloved barometric zeitgeist-ers The Simpsons have caught onto the craze about two weeks after this latent meme started coagulating and sprouting a fuzzy blue growth of minute fungal hyphae on the top of its head, as something that has lived well past the point of expiry is wont to do; like cheese, yoghurt, or Marge’s hair.

The somehow slightly less-idiotic Homer Shake will appear in the opening sequence of an episode of The Simpsons to air at a later date, although hopefully no later than Sunday.
Previously in Harlem Shaking: LeBron James did a Harlem ShakeAzealia Banks did her own version a Harlem Shake, then started a #beef over it; Harlem politely asked that everyone stopped doing all the Harlem Shakes; aural progenitor Baauer selected his favourite Harlem Shakes
The song that dare not speak its name is currently No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and No. 4 on the iTunes Singles Chart behind P!nk, Pitbull and someone called a James Arthur (?)

UPDATED: While it’s a well-known fact in pop culture lore that it can take up to 6-8 months to create a full episode of The Simpsons, it probably doesn’t take as long to create a 30-second addition to the title sequence. All that aside, we still love The Simpsons. Just not the Harlem Shake.
Seems appropriate:
