  1. We can see the funny view in the world even though we can’t understand the language, so this video is popular.

    We can see various view and people in the world.
    I thought that all people who were dancing in each country on this video were smile, and it seemed that they were enjoying dancing. I thought it, even though there is not any language, so it is a communication.

  2. I think the video tells that people can communicate if they don’t speak.
    I think it is reason. And scene changes in many country. It’s very intersting.

  3. I think this video tell us “People don’t have to speak same language when they communicate to foreigner”.
    In this video, People dance together a dancer of foreign country.
    Any country people feel same feeling and don’t have to speak same language.

    So this video any country people feel “happy”, this is the reason of popular.

  4. I think the reason why this video is popular is smile of people in the video.
    Dancing has no language, but many people in various cities enjoy dancing each other.

    I surprised at people in the video when I watched it at first.
    And I think that dancing is the good way to communicate.

  5. Good evening.
    This video isn’t need language to understand.
    So this video is so poplar, I think.
    And everyone in this video are seems to be happy.
    It makes us happy. that is a reason too.
