Groups of people across North Devon have taken part in the latest viral video craze – the Harlem Shake.

Several videos have emerged on YouTube of people across the region filming their own version of the Harlem Shake meme, which is being dubbed as this year’s Gangnam Style.

It is a craze which has taken the world by storm and sees groups and individuals dancing, usually in masks and fancy dress, to a song by DJ and producer Baauer.

The video usually starts with a single masked person dancing to the start of the song before the bass drops in and the video cuts to the same scene filled with a group of costumed people.

In North Devon, the Harlem Shake has been filmed by groups in Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and on Exmoor.

Several people took to Ilfracombe Pier on Sunday to perform their own version of the Harlem Shake.

The group of random people donned fancy dress costumes and performed the ‘Harlem Shake’ underneath Damien Hirst’s Verity statue.

A group of students at Ilfracombe Arts College also performed their own version of the shake in a classroom.

Elsewhere in Ilfracombe, a group of pub-goers wore onesies and masks while they filmed their version of the shake at Cook Island Freehouse.

One group took to Exmoor to film their version of the Harlem Shake. The group of men, believed to be on a stag do, filmed their video in front of a stunning coastline backdrop.

The craze has also hit Barnstaple with a group of students performing the shake outside Petroc College.

Elsewhere, cheerleaders from Falcon Academy Cheerleading performed the craze at their centre.

And a group of students performed the internet meme at Barnstaple’s Rock Park, complete with a giant soundsystem.
