The most scientifically accurate Harlem Shake

Vy8pcAAn absolute gem of the internet. Scientists from the Lab Group Aliquot have developed this amazing video using Caenorhabditis elegans, better known as roundworms, a species of nematodes that live in temperate soil environments. Taping the right moment when one is moving and when all of them are shaking and adding the widely known music they’ve created this viral video. The result is absolutely fantastic and makes all scientifically educated minds have a good laugh. In fact, the lab posted on the comments of the video:
“We tried a series of different songs to stimulate the desired response. We first used Careless Whisper by George Michael and I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness which both, predictably, caused apoptosis (instantaneous death). We next used Barry White’s Let the Music Play album to achieve results. Inevitably, the roundworms became too fixated on mating to perform the dance. We finally settled on a mixture of neuro-feedback therapy and club drugs to stimulate the appropriate response”.
