VIDEO: Hundreds of car enthusiasts gather for Harlem Shake in Baglan
It is the internet dance sensation that is sweeping the world — and now it has arrived in South West Wales.
The Harlem Shake craze sees big groups of people dancing wildly for the camera — and posting the clips online.
And when hundreds of car enthusiasts gathered in Baglan Industrial Park for a Cruise Swansea meeting, a smash-hit video was born.
The clip has been viewed almost 11,000 times in recent days.

On the Cruise Swansea Facebook page, users are encouraged to share the video and “show them how the Welsh do it!”
Harlem Shake videos usually follow the same pattern — the clips last around 30 seconds and feature an excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake” by Baauer.
They start with one person — often helmeted or wearing a mask — dancing alone to the song for 15 seconds surrounded by other people not paying attention to the dancer; then the video cuts to the entire crowd dancing with wild abandon.
Thousands of clips of groups of people dancing have been uploaded to the web in recent weeks as the craze sweeps around the world.
South Wales Police said they attended the event in Baglan on Sunday night following reports of a “significant” number of vehicles gathering.
A spokesman said a number of vehicles and drivers were reported for summons for road traffic offence.
He added: “This was an unofficial gathering which officers are trying to discourage.”
