Is This the Most Homophobic 'Harlem Shake' Video of All Time?

Buggery

'Harlem Shake' videos are supposed to be all about fun. But this one is about imprisoning gay people.

The Love March Movement, which describes itself as being "dedicated to being a persistent voice in the Jamaican media for sexual purity," is behind a new 'Harlem Shake' video calling on Jamaica to retain laws criminalizing homosexuality.

Jamaica is considered one of the most homophobic countries on Earth rife with bias crimes against LGBT people, and it's not hard to see why given the content of this YouTube video.

LGBT people in Jamaica are routinely beaten by mobs, and are afraid to be free in their own country. Sexual acts between men are punishable by up to ten years in jail...

Check out this trailer for a Kickstarter-funded documentary by Micah Fink that I posted about earlier this year that tells the story of two gay people afraid for their lives in the country. It's very powerful:

No doubt you've heard about YouTube's latest meme. If not, where have you been?

Here's the backstory: The clips, set to the song "Harlem Shake" by Baaue, usually show a masked person doing the Harlem Shake dance by themselves in front of other people who are behaving normally. Halfway through the clip, it cuts to a crazy dance party featuring the entire group.

Naturally, this lends itself well to college dorm room situations, and the 'surprise' element provides the perfect vehicle for sudden clothing removal. You've even got swim teams shaking it underwater:
