This Auditor Harlem Shake Video Has an Inexplicable Appearance By a Baby in a Pumpkin Shirt

I’m not too hip on the viral dance videos that constantly pop up on the Internet. I didn’t see Gangam Style until it was approaching 900 million views. This is mostly because they are dumb. But now that The Harlem Shake — that isn’t even really the Harlem Shake, mind you — has taken hold, we’ve been bombarded with videos claiming to be accountants/auditors from a particular firm performing it in conference rooms and they’re nothing special and there’s nothing particularly accountant-y about them. They are just “Sad Office Worker Jiggles.”

And really, this one isn’t any different. Supposedly, these are auditors in E&Y’s San Jose office. And supposedly James Huang, the Spike Jonze of accounting-related videos, was involved, but we have not confirmed either of these assertions. I seriously doubt Mr. Huang would want his reputation associated with such rudimentary video art, but whatever.

What’s not up for debate is the appearance of a child that cannot stand on its own, putting it in the age range of 1-ish, wearing a pumpkin shirt in the middle of the gaggle of dancing fools. He seems to be having a good time; or at least as good of a time that a child would have in an audit room. And that’s amusing, I guess.

I suppose the person in the sleeping bag is funny as well. It’s Friday during busy season. I know you need this.
