Where the Hell Is Matt?

Where the Hell Is Matt? is a video and website by 31-year-old deadbeat and world-traveler Matt Harding. Matt hails from Connecticut, currently lives in Seattle, and became semi-Interwebs famous after he quit his Australian video-game code-monkey job to travel around Asia.
"A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt an idea. They were standing around taking pictures in Hanoi, and his friend said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do that dance. I'll record it." He was referring to a particular dance Matt does. It's actually the only dance Matt does. He does it badly. Anyway, this turned out to be a very good idea."
Or so quips the about page. Matt kept doing it throughout his travels, a spliced together video went viral, and Matt got a sponsorship to do two more dancing world-trips from Stride Gum. This is the 3rd installment:

Thanks for the background; Matt is cool, it’s good to see that he’s still out there cruising around.
Leave him a comment about his evil dancing. LOL! I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. Great job Matt! Stay safe out there! Keep dancing!
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw ALL dancing

moving bodies to music
must be seen as evil

My favorite was the korean demilitarized zone, just for the contrast. In every other one there's a crowd of other people dancing, and in that one there's just this armed guard wondering whether or not he should shoot him.

Lollercoaster on both comments.

Uspace, you're so spacey.
