Have you whaled yet today? It’s the new thing. Whale at the club. Whale at school. Whale in your cubical. Just don’t whale at a funeral. That would be doing it wrong.
As the Vines below show, the premise is to act like a whale breaching the water behind an unsuspecting observer. Bonus Internet points are awarded for twisting in the air.
At the moment Twitter is awash with whaling videos, but if history teaches us anything, each new viral sensation lasts less time than the last. The Harlem Shake lasted about a week-and-a-half. This one started popping up on Vine a few weeks ago, and is still relatively confined to that network, but it could die at any moment. Get whaling while you still can. Just don’t break your back.
