How People Count Cash

This is an extraordinary piece of comparative ethnography I'd seen some time ago and put out on Twitter the other day:


How People Count Cash? - Funny home videos are a click away

The simple rote-techniques of everyday life are some of the most deeply entrenched cultural differences we exhibit, and they're often shocking in their variety and alienness if we pause to observe them.  Kudos to whoever assembled this gem.  If anyone can point me to a cross-cultural video study of gait/walk, I'd very much appreciate it.
