The “Harlem Shake” is the latest YouTube fad to go viral worldwide, with several remakes of the comical video being made in the Arab world, the latest of which will be in Dubai.

Residents on Friday will gather on an open beach next to the seven-star Burj al-Arab hotel, in an attempt to make Dubai’s “Harlem Shake” bigger and better than New York’s.

There are currently 1,072 people due to attend the video shoot, according to the “Dubai Harlem Shake” Facebook group, which says it has police approval. 

The “Harlem Shake,” produced by DJ and music producer Baauer, has been rocketing up the global music charts.
