NETHERLANDS — An advert that uses the 'Harlem Shake' internet craze to raise awareness of Parkinson's disease has sparked controversy because it features a sufferer staggering about as the music plays.
The Dutch Parkinson's Society released the video, called 'Worst Shake Ever', that shows society chairman Eric Roos, who did not take his medication in order to make the video, shaking out of control in an office kitchen while the song Harlem Shake by Baauer plays.
The video imitates the Harlem Shake internet meme, which are short videos typically beginning with one person gently bopping alone for the first 15 seconds while everyone else in the room ignores them. Then the bass line drops and everyone goes wild, doing crazy dance moves around the room. In this version, when the bass drops, Mr Roos collapses and people in the office rush to help him.
