A new Internet meme called the Harlem Shake has gone so viral that many celebrities, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Ryan Seacrest and Anderson Cooper, have showcased their version of the popular dance moves on video.

The song, Harlem Shake, was produced by New York music producer Baauer. The tune is so catchy that even the cast of Daily Show and Colbert Report made their own Harlem Shake remix videos. Jon Stewart and his Daily Show staff danced to the track and later his friend Stephen Colbert did the same on the Colbert Report with the studio audience. Also, TODAY followed suit as did several models from Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue.

Meanwhile, the song, created by New York producer Baauer, has landed No. 1 on the iTunes Charts. Baauer shared how he came up with the catchy track that has garnered over 175 millon views on Youtube after 40,000 videos came out in less than a month featuring the song.

"I just had the idea of taking a Dutch house squeaky-high synth and putting it over a hip-hop track," Baaeur told Daily Beast. "And then I tried to just make it the most stand-out, flashy track that would get anyone's attention, so put as many sounds and weird sh*t in there as I could."

"The dude in the beginning I got somewhere off the Internet, I don't even know where, and the lion roar just makes no sense," he added. "There's the sound of flames in there, too, it's just really low."

The Harlem Shake is a dance that was originally created in Harlem, New in the early 80's, but Baauer said he was inspired by the title mention in Philadelphia rapper Plastic Little's song Miller Time.

"A friend had shown me that track where he says, then do the Harlem shake, and it just got stuck in my head for a while, so I used it," Baauer admitted.

Baauer has had so much success with the track that he is scheduled to perform in several upcoming festivals, including SXSW in Austin, WMC in Miami, and Coachella in Indio, California.
