Worst Harlem Shake ever!


The Harlem Shake became a global Internet hype in no-time. Millions participated. They danced the Harlem Shake like they lost control of their body for a moment. There’s no message behind it, it’s just plain fun to watch. But we do have a clear message: Parkinson’s patients lose control over their bodies, forever. There’s no acting in this film. De main character, a Parkinson’s patient (and the chairman of the foundation), is shown shaking out of control as a result of lack of his medication. Shaking. Fun for some… Daily struggle for others.
