Happy People Dancing on Planet Earth

This video floated back into my consciousness the other day thanks to this post on Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD):

What are these humans doing? Dancing. Many humans on Earth exhibit periods of happiness, and one method of displaying happiness is dancing. Happiness and dancing transcend national boundaries and occur in practically every human society. Above, Matt Harding traveled through many nations on Earth, planned on dancing, and filmed the result. The featured video, one in a series of similar videos, is perhaps a dramatic example that humans from all over planet Earth feel a common bond as part of a single species. Happiness is frequently contagious — few people are able to watch the featured video without smiling.

Sadly, Matt Harding stopped blogging around 2014, which is a great shame.

This video is a timely reminder that all the people of the world enjoy getting together to sing and dance. 🙂
