Skype Around the World


Mark Malkoff is a New York City comedian and Stephen Colbert lookalike.  According to NPR, he has “lived for a week inside of an IKEA store, consumed beverages at 171 Starbucks in Manhattan in less than 24 hours and proved that his kid’s Big Wheel bike could beat a New York City bus across 42nd Street.”

In other words, this guy’s got ambition.

His latest project – dubbed “Call Me, Haiti?” by NPR (public radio, your grasp on year-old pop culture never ceases to amaze) – is a quest to skype with someone in every country in the world.  The results are hilarious and often touching. 

This video is a happy reminder that we are all more alike than we are different.  At the end of the day, we all love ABBA.

Enjoy his video below (and the full interview here):
