No Harlem Shake for St. Petersburg Citizens

No Harlem Shake for St. Petersburg Citizens

On Sunday, March 3, Russian police prevented hundreds of participants to hold a flashmob by performing the popular Harlem Shake dance in downtown St. Petersburg.

      Around 300 young people gathered on Sunday for the Harlem Shake flash mob in front of the huge Galerea shopping center. Some sources report up to 700 people came to perform the recent Internet dance hit, which has already become a worldwide sensation. Organizers posted information about the flashmob on several social networks.

      However, nobody could expect such reaction of St. Petersburg police. The crowd was briefly dispersed by police who said they “reacted to the complaints of citizens that the group blocked the passage.” The organizer of the event, a 17-year-old man, has been taken to a police department.

      Baauer's Harlem Shake song was originally released in May 2012, but became a dance music sensation only this February, when the first video with people going crazy to the music appeared.

      It was followed by nearly hundreds of similar videos, including those which were made by the Facebook, Google, Amazon, Pepsi, Nintendo and many other biggest companies.
