EGYPTIAN police arrested four students who filmed themselves publicly dancing in their underwear doing the viral dance craze the “Harlem Shake.”
The four pharmaceutical students shocked residents of a middle class Cairo neighbourhood when they removed most of their clothes and
videotaped themselves performing the pelvis-thrusting dance, a police official said.
The hostile audience tried to assault the students, who are accused of committing “a scandalous act,” the official added.
Egypt has strict public indecency laws.
Some Egyptians have posted videos of themselves on Youtube doing the Harlem Shake in front of the pyramids. One of them, dressed in white underwear and a bow tie, dances while riding a camel.
