(or coincidence...for you skeptics reading this post)
that happened right before filming the above music video.
He wrote -
"OK, so I had a really weird number sync right before recording this last Sunday.
Scott (who I'm singing with) and Sylvie (who took the video) and I were in a sushi restaurant near the theater waiting for the crowds to gather.
The restaurant shared a bathroom with the adjoining hotel and required a code (9-8-7-5-3). Sylvie had to write it down on a slip of paper because she kept getting it confused with (867-5309).
When it came time to pay the bill Scott pulled out some ones and a five, and there, written in pencil on the bill were the numbers 9-8-7-5-3.
He'd been carrying it with him from Oly.
Sylvie, who hadn't told us the number was like, "Wait a second..." and pulled our her slip of paper with the exact same number sequence on it.
Even as someone who is used to sync, I was all kinds of blown away and inspired.
It was like some kind of magic trick but there was no magician, or we were the magicians but we didn't know how we did it.
I'm sure you all know the feeling."
I put 98,753 into Google search to see if there were any news stories featuring that number and the first one I got was about a bowler named Maynard Johnson of Crystal, Minnesota, becoming the 15th member of the 100,000-Pin Club at the
United States Bowling Congress Open Championships
during his singles event about a year ago.
"The 83-year-old right-hander entered the 2014 tournament with a career pinfall of 98,753, and needed 1,247 pins this weekend to reach the milestone in his 61st USBC Open Championships appearance"

I couldn't help but think of the movie The Big Lebowski after reading about that bowling milestone...or should I say crystal of Maynard Johnson's?-)
Also weird, I typed the number 98,753 into the Google search engine and it gave me a link to a Nightmare on Elm Street parody of Freddy trying to give up smoking.
Look at the address bar on your computer when you go to the link.
Andras Jones was one of the main characters in
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 ,
in case you weren't aware,
which makes that 98753 link an even stranger coincidence I think.
