To the joy of anyone with a Tumblr account or a cat thing, the Internet-famed Grumpy Cat (real name: Tardar Sauce) from Arizona has surfaced on YouTube performing the Harlem Shake.

The Shake's been performed by (too) many across the globe and has little to do with the dance move that originated out of Harlem, New York.
With a little luck, the Grumpy Cat might put an end to the dance trend/viral video/terrible excuse for coworkers to get together, put wigs on, and dry-hump each other in front of a camera.
