Where The Hell is Matt?

I discovered this some time ago (thank you, NYTimes), but an article about it popped up in my local paper yesterday, and it occurred to me that if I haven’t already shared this with you guys, I absolutely have to now.

I suggest reading the NYTimes article first, as it gives some interesting background. After reading that and checking out the website, this might also be a useful link. And kind of amusing.

This is an awesome video/project. First of all, um, who doesn’t want to be this guy?! Because I know I do. I think he discovered how to do my dream job, dammit. Secondly, I’ve teared up every time I’ve watched these videos. I know, I know, I’m sentimental, but, seriously, it just puts everything that’s going on in the world into perspective. While the Olympics may be promoted as a symbol of international unity, people are still competing. Matt’s videos show rather how very much the same we all are, how something so simple as dancing and being silly can bring people together, because it is something with which we can all identify.

Plus, it’s just pretty funny to watch a pudgy white guy do the awkward white boy dance.
