Almost two years ago I added a link on my site for one of my favorite sites ever: WherethehellisMatt.com. This guy is my idol. In a nutshell, he travels around the world, dances badly, and records it. And that’s about it. He’s been doing it for several years now, has secured a sponsor and has quit his day job. If you haven’t seen his videos yet… you must check out his site right now. He’s just released the 2008 video where other locals and travelers join him for a dance off in each locale. But the first two videos are a must-see as well.
It’s so simple and yet always nearly brings tears to my eyes. It somehow makes the world seem smaller and in harmony if only just for a moment. Maybe if everyone danced more often, we would all see more smiles, more laughing, enjoy life more, and look forward to each new day. From big rich countries to the lesser developed struggling countries he visits, you can see joy in the faces of the young and the young at heart. No matter how hard life is for them, they can still have fun.
The video and message is simple: no politics, no attachments, no stress, no problems, just people having fun together doing the same thing (dancing badly) at the same time, all over our big beautiful world.
Take a look.
