cross-cultural reaction video

I think I've shown a "tribal people" reaction video before, but the one below is new. In it, we have tribal people reacting to Johnny Cash's version of the Nine Inch Nails song "Hurt."

The video participants are from Sindh, Pakistan.

Trent Reznor, lead for Nine Inch Nails, initially had little reaction to Johnny's cover of "Hurt," but when he saw the accompanying video, his attitude changed.

I recall the first time I came across the Cash video and thinking it was unlike anything I'd heard him do before...also very powerful and moving.

Until reading this post, I didn't know it wasn't a song he wrote. That somehow seems to make the emotion conveyed even more moving. It's also interesting that the "tribal reaction" seems universal despite cultural differences.

Good stuff!
