You may have seen this already but it is a great piece. Reminds me  a recent conference presentation that  I felt compelled to sit through . . . Because the words are recognizable and the rhythm and intonation of the conversation are so "comfortable" and "intimate," the native speaker's brain will keep trying to turn it into a story of some kind. The power of prosody . . . and (near) haptic video!
