It takes a village… to move an entire house by hand (VIDEO)
Take this video where people from all walks of life got together and moved a house to the other side of their village.
The cooperative act, which is believed to have taken place in Indonesia, shows the strength and unity of the community.
After a countdown, villagers lifted the giant wooden structure and, in a matter of seconds, maneuvered it across a field with surprising ease.
Several strong women, including some wearing their traditional head scarves, were part of the moving crew.
This kind of community spirit is a centuries-old global phenomenon, dating from before the time cash was king.
Indonesians and Malaysians call it gotong-royong.
