Two remarkable videos

Two friends sent me the link to this video, and one explained it (which was helpful because I couldn't figure out how they'd done it) -- various musicians singing "Stand By Me" to the same background so they're in sync with each other.

And this one, a guy named Matt Harding dancing with people from all over the world. It's impressive, particularly the dancing in weightlessness with astronauts on the vomit comet, and the tribesmen in New Guinea (the Huli Wigmen).

I was able to find a little of the backstory -- Matt apparently saved up his money and traveled around Asia, filming himself dancing in various cities. A company named Stride Gum sponsored his trip around the world in which he visited all 7 continents, and I think there was at least another trip after that, and Matt has become pretty well-known as the guy who dances on the internet.
