Matt Harding sure gets around.
The 1994 Staples graduate was an early YouTube sensation. His videos — of himself dancing “badly” (his word), from Macchu Picchu to Mongolia, and every place in between — drew hundreds of millions of viewers. He wrote a book. Corporate sponsors threw money at him.
And through it all — from his first impromptu dance (Hanoi, 2003) to today — Matt kept dancing.
His latest video was released yesterday. It could be his best yet.
In less than 5 minutes, Matt busts out new moves. He waltzes in Vienna; does a tribal dance in South Africa; gets down with firefighters in Texas, and underwater at the Great Barrier Reef.
He does whatever dance they do in North Korea — and what other Westporters (except Alan and Brian Hershey) have ever been there?
And Matt dances everywhere else too, hopscotching from Idaho to Scotland to Rwanda, all to infectious music he helped compose.
Sure, it’s hot and humid here. Yeah, there’s a million things to do before we can relax for the summer. And watch out, someone might give your kid a cupcake when you’re not looking.
But forget all that. Click the link below. Crank up the speakers, and enjoy the video.
It could be the most enjoyable 5 minutes you’ll spend all week.
