Matt Harding, in his 20s, was a video-game designer, broke, traveling the world on a shoe-string.
That's him in a reddish T shirt, and shorts.
On a whim, in 1997, he put together this video, “Where the Hell Is Matt?” -- short clips of himself, a non-dancer, doing a few dance steps. He started doing it in one location after another, picking up other people's steps as they learned his.
Some of Matt's clips were made while he was working for a chewing gum company called Stride. Visa Credit Cards hired him to do TV ads for them. A few months ago, Matt Harding put together all the clips and made a video for 2012. He’s 35 now -- he’s got a house in Seattle, he's got a wife and baby son dancing with him nowadays.
Here's the video.
