It’s been a WILD week at the offices of Rocket City Mom! Thankfully it’s all been positive wildness, but it has led to today’s Internet linky-love post being a bit… random.

You might remember Dancing Matt from his previous world-wide dancing videos, and now he’s back with a new 2012 version. This is what world peace looks like, in music video format, and you can’t watch it without feeling like your chest might explode with happiness.
