Matt is everywhere, everywhere in the world, but especially on Youtube. He has gone on not one, not two, not three, but FOUR world tours, posted 4 dance videos and has, collectively, millions of views!
Before turning to what brings us here, namely his newest video posted just a few days ago, we should get to know this famous Matt Harding:
He is a young man of 35 who started to travel the world in 2003, making videos of himself as a dancing fool in different parts of the world. With the encouragement of a friend, he started doing so alone in front of various monuments and places of interest.
After his first video, posted on Youtube in 2005, he very quickly gained notoriety enough for a brand of chewing gum (Stride) to be interested in him. They offered to finance his second tour and video in 2006 on the same principle as the previous one: Just dance his silly dance all around the world.
Luckily, in Rwanda, children came to dance with him and made him aware that what matters is the people more than places.
Back at Stride, he managed a new contract to finance a new video, posted in 2008, in which he would dance around the world, though this time very well surrounded. Visa also helped to finance the project, and with the money he saved he moved to Seattle and started a family.
For his latest video, he could not find a sponsor (weird, right?) and decided to fund the video himself, this time with more choreography.
Okay, so I’m writing and writing and you still do not know what his videos are like…
Let’s correct that immediately:
2005 Video :
2008 Video (viewed more than 43 million times!!!):
You can find more info on his website and more videos on his YouTube channel.
I particularly like the one where he admits that his video is a fake at Mac World 2009, as it’s obviously fake
