There are no weekend box office charts for online videos. But if there were, at the top of nearly every list right now might well be a four-and-a-half-minute video called "Dancing." In just a month since its online release, it has been viewed by more than ten million people. After 14 months of traveling in 42 countries, it's the story of a guy named Matt doing the gratitude dance with a cast of thousands around the globe ... from the streets of Mumbai to a rock formation in Ireland to a tulip field in Netherlands!

    Hi Jack, Matt talks about how he finances his trips on his FAQ page: http://www.wherethehellismatt.com/about/faq check out his answer to "How do you afford all this travel?" the frequent flyer miles question...might need to reach out to Matt to see what he says! although he has traveled to 80 countries thus far...

    People of the world dancing, a universal language of joy, inspiration and being a human being. What if we could all just be human beings at work, in our families and at play?

  • Barbe

    Came across it on StumbleUpon.com. Not often you see a video that is cheerful or covers such a broad scope of people. Deserves an award. And was glad to see ended so close to my hometown of Seattle.

    You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth.”

  • DeeB

    Hey Matt!! Who cares if your dancing is a little goofy...It brought a giant smile and tears to my eyes. The joy, movement and solidarity of the faces of the world is what the true human spirit is all about! Keep dancing and bring the message to all! We are one.

  • EBK

    That was fantastic!

  • JC

    His ingenuity, perseverance, and the message eminating through his dance and what was written in the bio makes my teeth and bones smile. He found a way to make things happen and wasn't afraid to be turned down. He has found another way to achieve his dream and find happiness for millions.
