THE Harlem Shake just isn't for everyone.

The dance craze, made famous by a group of Sunshine Coast teenagers, has lead to a new form of uprising in both Egypt and Tunisia this past week.

In Cairo, hundreds of protesters filmed themselves doing the dance craze outside the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Meanwhile, students and ultraconservative Islamists known as Salafists clashed in Sidi Bouzid over the "western dance of misbelievers."

According to the New York Times, the rally by about 400 activist dancers in Cairo, outside the offices of President Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, was streamed live to the web.

It followed the arrest last week in Cairo of four pharmaceutical students, who had been charged with violating the country's decency laws by dancing in their underwear to the Harlem Shake.
