A riddle that seems impossible. Can you solve it?

Riddles can be fun, and sometimes really difficult. The mystery covered in this video is one such, the question is: If we say that there are 100 prisoners, numbered zero to one hundred, while pieces of paper with each number placed randomly in boxes in a sealed room. One at a time, each prisoner enters the room and opens 50 drawers to find his number. After this, they must leave the room exactly as they were before they arrived and may not communicate with the others. If all 100 prisoners find their numbers, they will be released, if only one does not, they will all be executed. Is there any way to increase their chances of survival?

To hear the answer, which is quite surprising, just watch the video (the solution comes 3:06 in the video).
