Love it! I saw this great video on SF Iam where the reporter goes to Seattle to try and track down Internet and You Tube sensation Matt Harding of Where the Hell is Matt.com? Fame:

http://www.sanfranciscoiam.com/videos/cb...

Find out the origins of Matt Harding’s fancy dance that has become a global InterWeb craze. Man, this guy has been fancy dancing all around the world for 5 years now, spreading happiness!

Also, SF Iam has a lot of other great videos you should check out.

I cried! I can`t believe I did! That was simply beautiful. it`s like, for that brief moment that he was with all of those people, they themselves were all together, all those countries, everyone, CONNECTED! We aren`t so different after all!

A similar video was posted years ago on IAB, and all it got was negative comments, saying about how he`s wasting money and stuff, but I thought it was a good idea, and it`s good to see that newer IAB`ers agreee :-D

Iroj - do you think the continent you live on is called the United States of America? It is called North America and includes a lot more than your one country. Europe is a continent, Germany is a country exactly the same as the USA - there is nowt special about your country that makes it a continent.

Brilliant video though and they had San Francisco (my birthplace), London (my hometown) and Northern Ireland (my dad`s birthplace). :D

That is outstanding. Really makes the world seem like a lot smaller place.

P.S. I will now only buy stride gum when I want gum, because they funded this.

I teared up too. I`ve stood a whole bunch of the places he was. It was crazy to see that he was in my home town, a bunch of places I`ve traveled to and that all these people accepted and joined him.

P.s. Trust the German`s to get his dance down pat straight up.

this is the most beautiful and touching video i have EVER seen. the music was amazing and perfect. i feel like this should be shown at a UN conference... i think it displays that despite all the stupid differences in the world, we`re all incredibly similar.

It`s cool that he was in so many great places. It`s a waste that he`s such a moron. It would`ve been nice to see something better than an idiot doing a stupid little dance. It would be pretty easy to fake that too, he might not have ever left his mom`s basement.

I love this video! My acolades to the guy who visited the places and made the video.

It really felt nice to see where he went and all I thought throughout the video was, where is he going to next? I remember seeing one of his videos, and he was dancing at a salt flat. That place is so cool that you can`t really differentiate between the ground and the sky. It was almost like there is no horizon.

Love this video. And he came to singapore!!!! wooohooo!!!

I just think it`s lovely to see people from all over the world set aside their troubles for a few minutes - whether they are in NYC or South Africa, Portugal or Panama - to come together, let loose and just be silly.

How beautiful.

I think the world needs more silliness.

This video made me overjoyed and heartbroken at the same time.

Interesting song choice. It`s adapted from a Bengali poem, like it says at the end. The singer had a slight accent though, and topped with the Celtic-inspired singing, it sounded a bit strange.

Iroj, Europe is merely a continent, it`s not a state, like the USA is.

Nice vid. Better than the 2006 version.

no, its not berlin europe. He is saying it is supposed to be: City, Country. Which makes Berlin, Germany Correct.
but New York, New York is: City, State, leaving out the country.
I guess since America is so fabulous it is just understood without even mentioning the country....

Naw, But wouldn`t it be awesome for a site that you could vote for the places he goes. The great wall wouldve been amazing. Or below the "Christ the redeemer" statue in Brazil. Beautiful, awesome vid...

Honestly, I think if I ever see Stride gum I`ll buy some just because of this video. Not because some stupid "it makes you cool crap" like all the other advertisements in the world, but to fund something like this, something this amazing, deserves support I think. It was a brilliant idea, and I hope to support it.

They adapted a poem from a foreign language into a song. The end result was a good tune, but a butchered language.
