Dancing Matt and Sweet lullaby

Two things I experienced when I watched this video:

  1. I laughed! A guy dancing like a madman around the globe? He's gotta be nuts!
  2. I became overwhelmingly sad (even if for just a minute). According to Matt, the (extremely widely heard) song used for the video soundtrack is a lullaby sung by an African girl, and it says the following:

Young brother, young brother, be quiet

You are crying, but our father has left us

He has gone to the place of the dead

To protect the living, to protect the orphan child
