Where the Hell is Matt?


Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) from Matthew Harding on Vimeo.

This video is incredible. One guy dances a silly dance with people all over the world.

via Laughing Squid:

In 2006 video game developer Matt Harding took a 6 month trip traveling to 39 countries and made a video of himself dancing at various locations along the way. In 2008 Matt went on a follow-up trip, dancing his way through 42 countries in 14 months, this time inviting people to dance with him. Both of Matt’s trips around the world were sponsored by Stride Gum.

    Thank you for this wonderfull lift! It was amazing. Will watch it every time I feel down or lost.

  • I think one of the best lessons I’ve learned while traveling is that everywhere you go people are just people. And for the most part they are good, happy, fun people who are, in their hearts, just like you. This video is a wonderful expression and reminder of that.

    And now I think I need to book a flight somewhere…
