World Peace Through Bad Dancing?

Here at the Edge, we love fun videos, and we love sharing them.  You will see videos frequently on Chalk Blog!
We do apologize for the title of this video; although we would prefer that the title did not include profanity, we still think it’s worth sharing.
This one makes us smile, for many reasons: it’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s boundary-breaking.  A disgruntled (and self-admittedly unsuccessful) video game developer decided to quit his job and travel, and then decided to film himself dancing badly in all of the different places he went.  Eventually, people started to join him, in silliness and abandon, and he made a video.

I showed this video to my students, and it spurred a wonderful discussion about humanity, and how similar people are when they want to have fun.

How could you use this in your classroom?

    As a Spanish language teacher in a small, rural high school, I am constantly trying to convince the students that learning another language is valuable means to tapping into something way bigger than themselves. I think this video would stimulate interest and discussion.
