Where The Hell Has Matt Been?

See video

Here at the Roadside Resort, we recognize Matt Harding as one of the world's travel kings, a title he has reinforced with his newly released video.

Harding, if you don't know who he is, became an Internet sensation in 2005 with his first viral video showing him dancing a goofy jig in 20 worldwide locations, including such places as Vietnam, Russia, Mongolia and Kenya, where he frightened a giraffe.

Dancing Matt, as he came to be known, became even more popular through his Web site Where the Hell Is Matt?, as well as through the release of a second video in 2006. Scoring a sponsor in Stride Gum for his new video, Matt danced his way through an astounding 31 locations, cutting the rug next to such notable sights as Machu Picchu in Peru, Area 51 in Nevada, the moai at Easter Island and the Fremont Troll in Seattle, Washington. He also made sure to frighten some fur seals in the South Shetland Islands.

Friday, Matt topped himself with a brand new, third video in which he got jiggy at an astounding 69 locations in 42 countries with thousands of volunteer backup dancers. He didn't frighten any wildlife this time — unless you count the crabs at Christmas Island, although crabs are hard to read, really — but he did get to dance weightlessly in a commercial vomit comet.
