Prancercise: If you haven’t yet watched Joanna Rohrback show you how to cut the noose and really let it loose with her Prancercise trots and gallops, well, friends, we have one last treat for 2013. Got your ankle weights in place and your music ready? Let’s stop talking, and do some walking! YouTube views: 9,378,535 and counting.
Harlem Shake (sports edition): If there was one thing college basketball teams could all get behind pre-March Madness, it was doing a DIY version of this viral hit. Here, some of the best beat-dropping versions (along with a few kinda awesome football and swimming editions, too). YouTube views: 4,288,989 and counting.
Gangnam Style: Ok, so technically this ridiculous runway dance hit it big at the end of 2012…but we’re pretty sure you were still hearing it (and secretly dancing to it, be honest!) early this year. You may cringe at the first notes now, but with a staggering 1.8 BILLION views, we’ll hand it to K-pop musician Psy for getting damn near 25 percent of the people on Earth to get off their chairs and “trot” — and zap 28 calories in the process, hey-o.
