Gay American news anchor and silver fox hottie Anderson Cooper is the latest to join in on the next world-wide dance craze, the Harlem Shake, which is being dubbed the next Gangnam style.

The Harlem Shake has seen home-made videos spring up rapidly across the world, with copycats upping the ante each time.

Where Gangnam style has some general choreography, the Harlem Shake is just random moves with lots of thrusting and crotch-grabbing.

The 30-second videos generally shows one person dancing for about 15 seconds before the music changes a crowd breaks out some pretty wild dance moves.

Cooper told his audience the experience made him very uncomfortable.

“So this morning we have a morning staff meeting, where we’re going over what’s going to be on the show, and my staff decided to do this and I had no idea what was going on,” he prefaces the clip, “and I gotta say, I was horrified. It made me so uncomfortable,” he said.

Just a warning, the videos may be not suitable for work (NSFW) as most of them feature half-naked men.

Here’s a clip of Anderson’s staff pulling the Harlem Shake on him.

According to the various videos, the new dance phase apparently started recently even though the song has been out for at least a year. The trend has exploded over the past two weeks and has spawned some remarkable follow-up versions very quickly. Small groups of people in homes have made videos to whole sporting teams as well as other large groups of people. Check out the videos below for some more crazy videos inspired by the viral movement.
