Where The Hell Is Matt?

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.

    Dear Guitarguy234:

    Matt Harding may not be a household name, but his dancing is world famous. Last year Time named his “Where the Hell is Matt?” video the year’s #1 viral video–and for good reason. By clumsily dancing his way from India to France to Hawaii to Micronesia to Bolivia and Tanzania and more, he showed the world that one awful dance could show us all what a really small world we really live in. Everyone–men, women, and children–joined him in his spirited, joyful dance.

    Matt’s first book “Where the Hell is Matt?” ($14.95 hardcover, Skyhorse Publishing) is the story of Matt, his travels, and his videos. Told with humor and illustrated with over 200 of Matt’s own photographs, it is the perfect summer read for anyone who loves Matt’s video and wanted to hear from Matt how his journey started, whom he met on the way, and what he saw along the way.

    “Where the Hell is Matt?” is available from booksellers everywhere–on line and in stores. Please let us know if you need or want any further information about Matt or his book.

    Sincerely,
    Heather Chapman, Publicity Assistant
