Where the Hell is Matt? makes the mainstream

Some of you may have seen the video of the man dancing in different places in the world.  If you haven’t you should join the phenomenon.  If you have, then have you bought a pack of Stride gum yet?

All joking aside, I do kind of admire what Matt Harding has done.  He’s travelled to some pretty neat places and created 3 pretty neat videos of his travels and his awful dance.  Mind you, it’s exactly that bad dance that allows you to pick him out of a crowd.  Talk about intercultural interaction, though.  Dance as a universal language and a universal joy.  That’s awesome.  I know I’m saying that Matt dances poorly, but I’m sure I’d be a lot worse.

Just today, his video has been talked about in the mainstream media.  There was an article about him in the Vancouver Sun and I came across a second one in The Tyee.  However, his videos have been online for quite a while.  I wonder how the media got wind of this anyway?

Here’s his YouTube posting of the video.  However, I recommend you go to Vimeo and watch a higher quality stream in HD.
