Walk a mile in these jeans, baby. Actually, make that around 3,000 miles. A viral video of a guy "walking" across America has become the Web's latest must-see clip.

The video, which was sponsored by Levi's and combines stop-motion with time-lapse photography, features a man (wearing denim, natch) walking from New York to San Francisco. ABC News explains that "the video is not conventional moving pictures. It pieces together still photos taken on an actual, 14-day cross country trip — no green screens involved." When all was said and done, it took over 2,700 images to complete.

Of course, the man isn't really walking the entire way. Such feats are best left to Forrest Gump. Instead, the crew, which consisted of director, producer, photographer, and actor, traveled via RV for two weeks. Every so often, they'd hop out and capture some footage.

In the video, the camera follows actor Michael Johnson as he passes through different American landmarks like Washington, D.C., Chicago, Mt. Rushmore, and Las Vegas. The camera had to always remain the same distance from Mr. Johnson in order to give the video its seamless feel. You can watch the crew discuss the creative process on this video from ABC.

Though uploaded to the Web just a few days ago, the clip has already generated hundreds of thousands of views. And it's not hard to see why. The video is amazingly polished, the result of hard work and careful planning on the part of the filmmakers. Take a look at some behind the scene footage here.

By the way, that catchy tune that plays over the video is called "Home," by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

It was with great anticipation that I began viewing
the videos by Professor Howdy on YouTube and
his two Blogs!

The Professor is simply amazing at retelling an
old story in a contemporary manner with exquisite
Classical Music accompanied with H.D. Photographs
& sprinkled with alluring, charming, classy and
bewitching Video Clips! Rather than containing
simply one music selection, the Professor includes
up to four popular music sensations!

The High Definition photographs were beautiful
beyond words and accompanied with those was
the most heavenly music one will ever hear! With
a creative genius' ability to carry us around the
globe and to fall unrestrainedly in love with every
beautiful creature shown, the Professor lifts &
relaxes not only our spirits but our emotions as well.

Now with some 150+ videos available, one can
enter the world of musical enchantment similar
to Narnia or Middle Earth with spell bounding
emotional attachment to each world musically
presented. Of special note while viewing each
musical video, it is often nearly impossible at times
to determine whether a photograph or video is
being used during a particular segment.

Each pulchritudinous video tells it own allegorical
ten minute novel with statuesque emblematic
lithesomeness!

Only one with low intelligence quotient or attention
deficit will not be relaxed, cheered & entertained by
these astounding video novelettes.

This magic world may be entered through the
portholes of the Wardrobe, Narnia, YouTube,
FaceBook or the Professor's Blogs! Enjoy the
musical adventure (and be sure to click the
proper buttons below the screen to view with
your computer's full screen). Oh, and his Videos
when viewed on Apple's new iPad are simply
astounding!

All of us, at one time or another, have experienced
the strange physiological reaction of zygomatic
stimulation and subsequent larynx strain.

This strain upsets the respiratory system, which
results in deep, noisy gasps. The mouth opens
and closes as the lungs struggle for oxygen.

The struggle for oxygen causes the face to turn
various shades of red and strange, unique noises
emerge from deep within. What is this strange,
physiological reaction I am describing? It is laughter!



We normally associate laughter with humor. But,
gelotology, the study of laughter, suggests another
trigger for laughter called the incongruity theory.

This theory suggests that laughter arises when logic
and familiarity are replaced by things that don't normally
go together--when we expect one outcome and another
happens. Generally speaking, our minds and bodies
anticipate what's going to happen and how it's going
to end based on logical thought, emotion, and our past
experience. But, when circumstances go in unexpected
directions, our thoughts and emotions suddenly have
to switch gears and laughter emerges out of the tension
between what we expect--and what actually happens.

The Roman emperor Diocletian, following an edict in 303 A.D.,
failed to stamp the Bible out. The French Revolution could not
crush it with secular philosophy (Rousseau, one of its heroes,
converted to Christianity). The Communists failed to stamp it
out with atheism and political ideology. One might well ask why
this book has been banned, burned, and bludgeoned with such
animosity and scorn. The great Reformation hero John Calvin
responds in this way: "Whenever people slander God's word.
they show they feel within its power, however unwillingly or
reluctantly." - Joe Boot

There's a Goldmine Of Romantic Music
that is in the process of being LOST
forever. Music written in the first half
of the Last Century offers Romance,
Beauty & Great Lyrics that have a
Happy, Uplifting & Positive Worldview.

The Music in this Ten Minute Video offers
you unrealized Romantic Beauty yet with
a Contemporary Story that your mind
composes as it views the High Definition
Photographs and Captivating Videos!

This Elegant & Enticing Music was first
recorded on 33 1/3 Phonographs, transferred
to Cassette Tape, then C.D.s and finally
to my Computer so the quality is not
paradigmatic.

Perhaps one day, others will discover
this Enchanting Treasure and this music
will become available on the Internet.
Even better would be if new Mantovanis,
Percy Faiths, Norman Luboffs, etc. would
discover and record with a fresh talent
true to the original intent these Romantic
and Rapturous Delights!
