Dancing in a War Zone
This video was made by British troops stationed in Iraq for their friends and families (read the news story if you don't believe me). Within days of sending, it had spread virally to so many people that the sheer volume of people trying to access it crashed the military server.

Expertly choreographed (so much so that most questioned its authenticity), this video shows us that even in the middle of a war zone, people are capable of collaborating and producing something of great creativity, humor, and spirit.
