It's not everyday the internet can find a wholesome video the whole world can get behind. And get behind this video the whole world did, as a YouTuber danced with groups of people all over the world.
Matt Bray on his Youtube channel ProjectOneLife uploaded a video of himself dancing with 1000 different people all over the world.

Bray started the Youtube channel ProjectOneLife with the goal of spreading the zest of living. His channel shows him completing many items on his 'bucket list'. As popular as those were, it was his dancing that made him famous.
In 2014, he uploaded the video "100 Days of Dance" where he recorded himself performing the same dance everyday for 100 days. The Napoleon Dynamite inspired routine proved a hit with over 7 million views.
While he has continued to complete items on his bucket list, Bray has also been finding new variations on his dance challenge. He came back in 2015 with "100 Places of Dance" where as the title suggests, he performed the same dance routine in 100 different places.
He didn't upload any videos for almost a whole year, until he announced his return, finally uploading his masterpiece a few days ago. Over the course of 2018, bray traveled to different countries finding strangers to dance with him.
And it's a beautiful sight in this dark world.
Just a man an a dance to unite people all over the world. :-) #ProjectOneLife https://t.co/VT2ro8fG9X— Nick Joannidis (@Nick Joannidis)1547762363.0

The process wasn't easy. Bray says he had to overcome nervousness to ask complete strangers to learn his dance and be willing to perform with him.
"This video was literally just me flying to a country by myself, walking up to strangers in a cool spot I wanted to film at, and asking them if they would be willing to dance with me."
Bray has not announced any new videos just yet, but if you're interested in his brand of positivity, there's a whole backlog of a man living life to his fullest on his YouTube channel. And maybe this will encourage you to try dancing a little more.
