Where In The World Is Dancing Matt? [VIDEO]
This is one of my favorite videos on YouTube. Doesn’t it just make you want to dance everywhere you go?
Maybe we can get Dan Patrick to do something like this around east Texas…
The reason I love this video is because -
1. I love traveling – And this guy ‘Matt’ visited over 42 countries in the course of making the video.
2. I love dancing silly. My favorite part of the video comes after the one minute mark – when everybody joins Matt and dances like no one is watching (although already been over 56 million hits on YouTube).
This guy even has his own website called ‘Where The H*** is Matt?’. It features videos of him traveling the globe, and videos of him dancing in 2005, 2006 and 2008. There’s even a ‘Matt tracker’ – a map where you can see where Matt is at teh moment. Currently, it looks like he’s in Seattle, WA.
Watch one of the videos below, and read Matt’s bio, including how he started this crazy idea of dancing all over the world.
Matt is a 34-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. Matt achieved this goal pretty early and enjoyed it for a while, but eventually realized there might be other stuff he was missing out on. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he’d saved to wander around Asia until it ran out. He made this site so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he is.
A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt an idea. They were standing around taking pictures in Hanoi, and his friend said “Hey, why don’t you stand over there and do that dance. I’ll record it.” He was referring to a particular dance Matt does. It’s actually the only dance Matt does. He does it badly. Anyway, this turned out to be a very good idea.
A couple years later, someone found the video online and passed it to someone else, who passed it to someone else, and so on. Now Matt is quasi-famous as “That guy who dances on the internet. No, not that guy. The other one. No, not him either. I’ll send you the link. It’s funny.”
