In this particular iteration of the Harlem Shake from machinimator SlightlyImpressive, Lady Jaina Proudmoore seems to embody the video's spirit best -- cool and reserved one moment, flailing her arms wildly in a fervor of dance the next. What that says about the human female dance animations in World of Warcraft ... I really don't know. The throne room being relatively empty causes the Harlem Shake to lose some of its punch in this video, but I imagine it isn't easy to animate a room-filling rave.
Normally, each video begins with one person (often masked) dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, the camera transitions to the entire crowd doing the dance for the next 15 seconds, often wearing a minimum of clothes or crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.
