The next big music video?

Well,

This is a showcase of a Seattle based crowd going musically globetrotting. I defy you to remain dry eyed. (I'm crying already).

I love this guy. What a life he's living! Travelling, meeting lots of people and dancing with them. What else does one want?

Sad about the blurred faces in Damascus.

I can only guess, but probably because dancing is frowned upon by extremists.

That was awesome! Totally dug the "Temptation Walk" in Detroit—nice tribute to Motown.

I thought no one could visit North Korea (?)

That seal, sea otter, walrus, or whatever that was in San Diego was hilarious!

Okay, I see. That's slightly better than what I was envisioning.... being arrested for dancing or some such.

Yes!

Even if people cannot communicate, through language, a single word to each other, we all have have two feet, two legs, two arms, two hands.... and one smile to share... to understand and to communicate the joy of movement... of being... of human-ness.

I bought the music from amazon (it's a fabulous song) but the video is what makes me teary- and bleary-eyed.
