I'd Rather Dance

Back in 2005 Matt started traveling around the world. He would film himself doing this ridiculous dance at each major place he went to. The folks at Stride Gum saw what he was doing and decided to pay for him to continue doing it. They basically told him, we don't want to interfere, but we want you to keep doing this, so here's some money, just do what you've been doing. (of course he puts their name at the end as a thank you) This is his new one.

One of the most moving and inspirational videos I have ever seen.

Where the Hell is Matt?

Here's a "about Matt" section on his website in case you might think he's some rich kid who doesn't know what else to do with his money.

2005年にマットさんと言うアメリカ人は世界中に旅行した。色んな所で自分がダンスしてるのビデオをとられた。そしてストライドと言う会社の社長がそのビデオを見て感動したから、マットさんに旅行をつづけるためのお金をあげた。これはマットさんの2008のビデオ。

見たことがあるビデオの中に、これは一番感動なと思う。ごらんください。

マットはいったいどこにいるか?

i'm such a girl. i got all teary for some reason.
that is way freaking cool! how cool for him, though. 20, 30, 40, 70 years from now, when he watches that, i can't imagine how many memories will flood his head. how cool was the whale swimming behind him!?

This is cool. It actually looks fake in many places though. I hate to be cynical, but the video of him looked green screened in several of the clips. It seems to be real though....of course, it was a downer to read the comments and find that some people can't even watch an inspirational dance video without making some stupid political comment.

Anyway, this was cool no mater how you slice it.

I know I'm a little behind... it's December and I'm posting a comment to a blog posted 3 months ago, but better late than never, right? I freaking LOVE this, seriously, how cool that must have been for him! Im a little jealous! LOL!
