Who is Matt?

Matthew "Matt" Harding, (born September 27, 1976) is an American video game designer and Internet celebrity known as Dancing Matt for his viral videos that show him dancing in front of landmarks and street scenes in various international locations. Harding has since received widespread coverage of his travel exploits in major print and broadcast media outlets, and was hired by Visa to star in their Travel Happy campaign.

How did he get this idea?

Harding was known by his friends for a particular dance, and while videorecording each other in Vietnam, his travel companion suggested he add the dance. The videos were uploaded to his website for friends and family to enjoy. Later, Harding edited together 15 dance scenes.
The video was passed around by e-mail and eventually became viral, with his server getting 20,000 or more hits a day as it was discovered, generally country by country due to language barriers, before the launch of major video upload sites.
His videos are viewable on YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo and his own site wherethehellismatt.com. His second video (Dancing 2006) has been watched 27,747,545 times on YouTube as of April 04, 2010 and Harding's YouTube channel is ranked "83 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – Directors" as of March 31, 2009.
