The worldwide 'Harlem Shake' wacky dancing viral sensation that's had more than 20 million Youtube hits and hundreds of imitators is being reported to have started in the bedroom of five teens on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

The lads, Corey Walsh, Jimmy Dale, Matt Stanyon, George Warrener and Oscar Mitchell - otherwise known as SunnyCoastSkate - reportedly created the clip while kept indoors as recent storms battered Oz.

Walsh, 15, who's in year 11 at Caloundra State High School and the one wearing the helmet who kicks the crazyness off, told the Courier Mail that he was surprised their mucking about was becoming the next Gangnam Style.

"I think it's pretty crazy, I didn't think anyone would care at all,'' he said of the clip done to Baauer's tune.

"Some of the groups like the US army doing it, it's pretty crazy the way it's taken off.

"I reckon it could be (copied like Gangnam style) if it kept going how it is. I don't know if the song would be as big but maybe the dancing might.''
