This 30-second, NSFW clip has been seen more than 30,000 times, despite clearly violating YouTube’s community guidelines. 

The most popular meme on the Internet these days is being played out on YouTube through a harem of all-nude porn stars, and the video-sharing site has been unable to censor it.

“Definitely the Best Harlem Shake,” a teaser for the newest episode in the online porn factory Wood Rocket’s Memes I’d Like to F*ck series, features 15 seconds of eight porn actresses dancing naked in a locker room. Surprisingly, the video has yet to be removed from the site. In fact, since posting onto YouTube Sunday, the 30-second clip has been seen more than 30,000 times. 

Its existence is noteworthy because YouTube purports to maintain a strict set of Community Guidelines that prohibit “pornography or sexually explicit content.”

In April, the site went so far as to temporarily block a video that found former California mayoral candidate Fred Karger kissing another man.

“Most nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual content,” the site’s guidelines explain. “Generally if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for YouTube. There are exceptions for some educational, documentary, scientific, and artistic content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not gratuitously graphic.”

“Definitely the Best Harlem Shake” is not overtly sexual—it’s not as sexual as, say, the actual “film” it promotes—but it does involve eight different porn stars dancing around in the buff and sticking their butts in the air.

There’s also a guy who’s holding a pizza box over his pelvis, and we all know what that implies.

How long will this video stay up? The answer is anyone’s guess. YouTube did not respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment.

Update: Shortly after this story published, YouTube removed the video. The headline of this story has been changed accordingly.

YouTube's censorship is a shell game. If a video get’s taken down, another will likely soon replace it.
