'Where the Hell is Matt' world travel dance video heading for 4 million Youtube views

Matt thinks Americans need to travel abroad more.
Watch this film, it has something simple yet..... well, watch it.

This 30 something-year-old made so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he is.

One day in Hanoi, his friend said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do that dance. I'll record it" - a particular dance Matt does. Someone found the video online and passed it to someone else, who passed it to someone else, and so on. Now Matt is quasi-famous.

Stride Gum asked Matt if he'd re-do the film while taking another trip around the world to make a new video. Matt asked if they'd be paying for it. They said yes.... that was the 2006 trip....

Eventually in 2007 Matt went back to Stride with another idea. He traveled the world one more time and invited the people who'd emailed him over the last year, to come out and dance too.

The Stride people thought that sounded like yet another very good idea, so they let him do it.
