We don't know this kid's name, so we're just going to call him ORIGINAL B-BOY. This video, which the Library of Congress has politely decided to share with the world, was made in 1898, and shows a little street urchin performing acrobatics and maybe breaking just a little bit.

This Is What Happens When You Drink 20 Year Old Crystal Pepsi
You know what? Good. We want this guy to puke. He calls himself LA Beast and thinks a shirt that says "SWAG SWAG SWAG" is cool. The only reason we wouldn't want him to puke is that he has a whole YouTube channel that is just footage of him subjecting himself to "Xtreme" food chal…
‘The Daily Show’ and ‘Jimmy Fallon’ Try Their Hand at the Harlem Shake
We thought it was dead. Apparently we were wrong. Jon Stewart and the rest of the staff at 'The Daily Show' have made their contribution to Harlem Shake mania. At least they've put a bit of an original spin on the trend. Plus you get to watch Jon Stewart dance.
