Where The Hell Is Matt?
This is an amazing story. I just watched the lecture videos on his page and it inspired me into really wanting to travel.
This whole idea didn’t start as a marketing campaign. It just started with this guy who was unhappy at his job and living in Los Angeles. So he used up all his life savings to travel around the world until he ran out of money.
He has traveled abroad 3 times; once in 2005, once in 2006, and once in 2008.
He eventually was approached by the company that makes Stride gum. They asked him if he would be able to travel around the world and dance for them. He asked, “Will you guys pay for it? Because I’m out of money.” They agreed. This is the 2008 video that has become a viral video hit.
