Where the hell is Matt?

I thought this was really cool. For whatever reason this had an emotional impact on me, so I thought I would share it.

That has got to be the luckiest dood alive, along with Billy Bob Thornton. How he ever got to bang Angelina Jole is beyond me. :-b

Seriously though that is a really cool video. That shot of him in Norway dancing on that wedged boulder looks super sketchy. 8-o

I'd say he's lucky. Some gum company thought his first video was pretty cool so they sponsored him for another trip.

Matt's FAQ wrote:Matt is a 29-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. He 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 the planet 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 the idea of dancing everywhere he went and recording it on his camera. This turned out to be a very good idea. 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."

The response to the first video brought Matt to the attention of the nice people at Stride long-lasting gum. They asked Matt if he'd be interested in taking another trip around the world to make a new video. Matt asked if they'd be paying for it. They said yes. Matt thought this sounded like another very good idea.

At the end of 2005, Matt left on a 6 month trip through 39 countries on all 7 continents. In that time, he danced a great deal.

Make sure you watch both videos. I've talked to Matt personally, he went to my birthplace twice and we talked about his experiences there.
