    This is a scream!!! You know, I wondered if dancing on the Kjeragbolten was a good idea, especially if you are afraid of heights, but dancing on the LA highway, now THAT was dumb! Great outtakes video, keep up the good work. What could possibly be next?

    that is so not danc’n it looks like a home made tread system over and over again……
    are you happy? because know one can tell any difference from one country or adventure to the next! nothing changed! but knowing that your fine is all that matters ,I guess……

  3. Yankee in Perth

    I’d love to dance with you in your next video. You coming to Perth?

    Hey man, the music rocks! Is it an original score?

    Cheers man.

  4. Hi Matt, I loved your vids.. each time I feel good after seeing your vids. Pretty sad when you had missed my country (Singapore).. Anyway if you intend to come to Singapore, I would be glad to show you around for your filming. * Could I dance with you if you do come? haha*
    I had included your journal into my blog, to remind me of your great expedition

  5. Amy

    WONDERFUL! It was very worth the wait, I tell everyone I meet about your site. It always puts a smile on my face :) THANKS!

  6. Fran Rodas

    Hey Matt, I am very fun of you!!!! came to the south of spain and I will show you a lot of beautifull places to dance, like beaches, caves, montains and turistics places.
    you will enjoy it a lot! and me to!
    waiting for your visit

  7. Hey i’m the guy who made the shitty response to your video which didn’t go down too well with your fans :P, but still, your videos are absolutely amazing and if you want to visit newcastle upon tyne then you’d be more than welcome. You can dance and get eggs chucked off you and more. Fun eh? Keep up the good work, maybe i’ll see you in newcastle some time hah.
    Good luck,

    Come to Switzerland and dance on the Matterhorn! I actually live wayyy down south in Switzerland, but the Mattahorn would be cool!

  9. Tom G

    Hey Stefan i had the same idea :) I am not from Switzerland but i was some years ago on the Klein Matterhorn i think this would be a great place to dance.

  10. Anna

    Hi Matt!! WOW! It is just -WOW! Your film made me and my friend smile on our faces! Take your ass and come to us -POLAND! We will show you aroud (Tatra Mounatain, Kraków…) and dance of course!We also love traveling ;).Take care!

  11. polo

    What a fantastic trip… But how many shoes did you use???
    So it was a very good and pleasant idea. You’re so lucky to do all these travels.
    Thanks a lot for all your pictures..
    And perhaps you’ll comme in my town one day in the french Jura near Genova..

  12. Anna

    Hi Matt! WOW! It is justWOW! Your film made me and my friends smile on our faces! It’s wery optymistic. Take your ass and come to POLAND:)! We will show you aroud (Tatra Mountain, Kraków….) and dance with you of course:). Take care

  13. Acc

    after seeing you’re vids I bought a pack of stride, its a cool flip-down container, and the flavors last like and hour more than the leading brand :)

    all I chew now is stride

  14. Ok so I just spent a few hours watching your videos and lecture…. I’m beyond jealous, which you have heard before, but I can’t not say it. I’m sure you are counting your blessings because you have a lot of them. Take care on your next trip! Maybe we will see you….

  15. I really enjoyed the video, man. Especially loved the ending, as cruel as that may sound. But hey, I didn’t make it. lol
    Anyway, I really hope you swing by Louisiana, dude. That’d be sweet.

  16. john

    all i have to say is that this has been a great inspiration too me, i have had the same desire to travel the world,.and that there is soo much more out there, then where u live. thank you for the entertainment and inspiration.

  17. BP

    I read about you in “Viagem e Turismo” a Brazilian Magazine and whatching you dancing in all those marvelous places is just incredible. Inprove in your steps to dance with the Samba Girls and at the Cristo Redentor Statue. You have talent. Very well done the videos and the background song is great. Congratulations

  18. Kris Bradley

    You must be one of the luckiest people in the world! You’ve gone to so many of the places that I’d love to see. Did you actually get to see the mountain gorillas in Africa?
    Can’t wait to see the new video and all the places you go.
    Be careful and have fun!!

  19. Good choices in editing. I think the final version has the right feel. Its funny though to see the outtakes. I like how it took a while to get the children in Rwanda to get the final shot right. They were too interested in the camera itself.

    I really like this concept for a video because it is a good example of how big the world really is and how many people are in it. I really don’t like the saying “Its a small world”. Its not a small world, people just don’t get around much.

  20. Maria

    Matt, Wot a joy! No one could fail to smile at your dancing style. Why didn’t I think of it, I’d love someone to pay me for doing a silly dance in the most extraordinary locations around the world. Doh. Have fun and if in Nice, France, I’ll do a jig with you. Maria

  21. Marcello

    Hi, your video is wonderful and really touching! Italy is missing! if you decide to come in Naples tell me!

  22. Filipe


    I’m from Portugal too.


    You’re in my best of the internet selection. Whenever I need something to cheer me up I just watch your videos. 😉

    You’re almost as bad as I am when it concerns dancing…

  23. Tayon

    Hi Matt!!
    Continue your travel across the world you make so many people believe about their dream!


  24. Sebastien

    Hi Matt!!
    Thank you so much for the big smile your videos put on my face!! It’s a bit of happiness that you are sharing with us all. Thank to Stride gum as well to help you and make us all smile at the same time!
    You should come and dance in Montreal next time, i’ll hold your camera!!
    Thanks again! :)

  25. Priscilla-MG-Brazil

    Hello Matt!
    Amazing your video!!!Really enjoyed it!
    A challenge:I wanna see you dancing ‘samba’ in Brazil,ok?! 😉
    I’ll be waiting…

  26. Sherry Lepore

    This is a great job. The places you get to dance at, the people that you get to meet, SWEET
    I look forward to seeing you on Dancing With The Stars!!
    Be Safe and Get Jiggy Wit It

  27. Ian

    Nice vids! I’m sure the kids in Rwanda loved that and would like it again. Try to give some other poor African kids a smile.
    See if you can get to Canada some time. Good work!

  28. ico

    se vieni a ballare su ROMA sarei felice di ospitarti….infondi grande allegria grande gioia grande serenità e tanto sorriso a chi guarda i tuoi video…..
    il genio in fondo cosè, è follia è intuizione è velocità d’azione…
    buona vita amico mio è continua a ballare in eterno..

  29. Bryan

    I always cry with a smile when I watch your videos – it might be just the music that does it to me, but the video just makes me think of the many ways this earth can be connected in happiness and that makes it so emotional to watch. Thanks!

  30. Peven Ariola

    come to fresno or something that will be the best thing to happen here in a long time at bullard high school

  31. Christine Hollywood

    I first watched the video at work…during lunch…having a STRESS filled day…and it made me smile so much (especially seeing the happy children dancing) that I wasnt’ so stressed out anymore…so…I had my family watch it as well…they loved it too. It just makes you feel good….thank you.

  32. Might I recommend the appalacians? There very beutiful if you go over skyline drive. very beuitful indeed. Anyway, thanks for changing my life…I think americans should get out more to.

  33. Nagasyari

    Hey matt. Excellent Video.. Here are some photography tips to get that penguin shot..
    Move closer and down to earth to one of the penguin.. So the subject become larger while you dance somewhere at the distant background.
    Experiment the angle around to get a good compostition. You can do this to almost any small subject that you want people to focus on (instead of your excellent dance moves hehe ^_^ ) . keep Up the good work! Oh and thanks for comming to Brunei!

  34. M.P.

    Loved your vid. Come to Canada. There are lots of fantastic places to dance here from coast to coast.

    Hi from Portugal, I always love your vids, keep on the good work and make sure to visit me sometime!

  37. Núria , Catalonia (SPAIN)

    One day I want to be like your! It’s really incredible! You know every place of the land, every paradise … it’s amazing!!!

  38. cg

    Heyyyy! Awesome video to watch. I have shared this with many people. I can’t believe you came to New Zealand! It’s one of the best places in the world to dance a jig like Matt’s funky moves! Go Matt go!

  39. Pamela

    I love your sense of humor, and your quite the dancer! *giggles* I thought the best part was you dancing with the lil’ ones. They seemed to really enjoy the time you spent with them. It’s wonderful that you’re going to do another video based around that theme. Oh, by the way – it ROCKS that you write video games hehe…I must admit, I’m an avid MMO player. (I know, I know- I’ma closet dork lol..) So if you’re ever anywhere near Oklahoma City, I’d be honored to get some friends together and dance! LOL

  40. Rich

    Outstanding video Matt! The little comments were priceless and it made the “outtakes” just right. A masterpiece once again!

    All the best,


    Now to go fill out the “dance with me” form. :)

  41. T. Griffin

    Hi Matt! I really enjoy watching your travels! Dancing with the kids from Africa and seeing all their smiles is worth more than $. Just when I thought Google Earth was cool, it’s nice to see someone arriving in all these places that many only wish they could see. You have given me an idea for our family videos even if we only travel within the U.S. Keep up the good work stay safe and please be careful on items such as boulders that nature has placed in odd places!

  42. Hey Matt.
    Wow. This video made me so happy. I’ve watched it thrice times already! You mentioned your favorite time dancing was with the kids in Rwanda, that was the most enjoyable part for me to watch. Thank-you for making this video. You are incredibly neat. True Story. I am pretty excited, I am starting my travel this August in Russia.

  43. Anonymous

    We are waiting for you in Pamplona, Spain, on 7-14 of july in the incredible feast of Sanfermin!!! Don´t you know the running of the bulls…?

  44. HI there Matt.

    What a Wonderful idea dancing around the world. Thank you very much for bringing joy to the world. I got an idea for you too.

    You can dance in SPACE! ZERO GAVITY. You need no astronaut experiences and you will lose weight the fun way. I think you can board these zero gravity planes in both Russia and the Usa.

    Read more about it here. USA for astronaunts.

    link to

    And here you can be a Cosmonaunt for one day.Zerogravity Russia.

    link to

    So I hope to see you in dancing in SPACE and ZERO GRAVITY sooner or later

    Bon voyage, have fun and rock on.

    ..zI am going to Alaska in Aug…you have inspired me to dance!!…

  50. Nathaniel

    Awesome!!!! Are you planning to do it in Saudi Arabia? Jeddah is the city. Lots of nice places here and pretty interesting people. I’m from the Philippines anyway :)

  51. mariam

    Wow, I wish I could do that, but hey, I’m only 13 and I’m broke, so thats a problem.
    Make another one!!

  52. Dick Granite

    What kind of shoes were you wearing in the Dancing Outakes video and where can I buy them?

  54. Richard

    Hi Matt, great video love the dancing and the afican kids joining in.

    Places I would love to see you dance are Zimbabwe, Iraq, Iran and Afganistan. Try get some cool explosions in the background. :-) Take care

  55. tips

    Great dancer!!
    You ‘ve just forgoten belgium! come and dance in Liège!
    Keep dancing everywhere!

  56. We need a video of you dancing on a Comfy Sack from ComfySacksdotcom. Any chance a video game nerd like yourself would be intersted in doing this?

  57. Andrea P.

    Matt, you rock!!

    When are you coming to Brazil to dance a little samba with us? Keep dacing budy …

  58. andy

    I think what your doing so really awsome. Me and my girlfriend love watching your videos. We go to frostburg and there is this really cool spot up here in the mountains that might be cool for your shoot. There is a mountain peak that allows you to see three states from the top. I could send you pics if your interested. Also, I was wondering what the song is that plays throughout your 2006 video. Well good luck and keep up the dancing.

    Andy from Maryland

  59. Hey matt. I live in seattle too and in your next video it would be cool if you could dance at the Woodland Park Zoo or Discovery Park. That would be tight! Or the Space Needle.

  60. Debbie

    My family and I LOVE watching you! Even my small kids get up and dance… You’ve done a great thing here.
    Any chance we could change it to “heck” for the many kids that like to watch?
    Just a thought….
    Keep up the fun! You bring joy to people’s lives!

  61. Haz

    It’s times when I see just utterly awesome videos like this that it reminds me how much cool stuff there is in the world. We get so many awful, unwanted visuals in our face on a daily basis these days, it’s nice to take a time out and just enjoy the beauty of the world. Good work man, I’d love to see more.

  62. Tim

    Keep up the good work. I would soak Stride Gum for as long as possible to travel for free. I’m pretty sure everyone all around the world is 100% jealous but thats life. Keep traveling!!

  63. meadowmuffin

    Your vids make me smile each time I watch them. I like them so much I ripped them to my PC & show everyone. Some just don’t get it :(
    I found that those who don’t like them are not animal lovers. Then I tell them I just don’t get them either. A different breed all together. Keep havin’ FUN ☺

  64. Charles


    Your video is such an inspiration to me. Since I can remember my one true dream has been to see the world. To explore, learn, and grow by traveling the far corners on the planet. I’ve tried finding many ways in doing so but it is difficult because I just cannot find the expenses to cover it. I’d do anything to travel because it’s truly my call in life. How did you get to so many places? What is it that you’re doing so right?! It’s surreal what you have seen and I truly mean this when i say it: You have lived my dream.

  65. Just love it…

    Been dancing in the weardest places myself with my boyfriend… mmm…maybe we should start recording it?! :o)

    Make sure you don’t miss out on Mozambique when you’re so close… It is wonderful – go and relax in Tofo, but make sure you’ll leave again… it’s very easy to get stuck there (some of the world’s most amazing diving) and make even surer that you take those Malaria pills… this is the only place I REALLY REALLY recommend it….

    Travel safe… and keep on dacin’

  66. Bina

    Hey Matt!
    My French teacher had her brother come talk to my class about his year-long journey around the world with his wife. They were so jealous that they didn’t think to film themselves dancing everywhere they went before you thought of it, but you should check out their site They have some cool pictures.

  67. Satü

    Terveiset from Finland!
    It would be really nice if you came to Finland sometime! I could dance with you with no-problem!

  68. Hey! I love the video. GREAT song.. You should use a tripod and a “film camera” and this would be my alltime favorite music video.. great feeling thruought the whole video!

  69. Birdsong

    Love you’re stuff. The music fits everything perfectly. Oh the scenery…

    I doubt you’ll come visit around the United States much (i’m just outside Atlanta, Ga). Heh, that’d be cool if you did a dance at the fox theater.

    Anyway keep on keeping on (how do you afford all this? and how much does stride pay?)

  70. tidiman07

    Hey matt, great job man. We really do have a great planet and people never appreciate it, including me.
    btw, much love for checking out Botswana; Home Sweet Home.

  71. Laughed so hard, I was crying!!

    People were recommending this on the boards at Bootsnall.

    I’m now going to email this to all my friends!

  72. chris

    you have the coolest life!!! youre like the real indiana jones! you play video games all over the world and get to make people laugh by dancing how cool is that!! i want to be just like that!!!!

  73. JJ

    Perfect scene with the kids dancing!! It realy almost made me cry…
    Come to dance in Brasil, folk!!
    You will be “bem vindo”!



  74. Anna

    this is so great! come dance in Israel! this is such a cool idia, i wish i coul’d do it too! Matt you are so lucky!!!!


  76. Gibby

    Some people dance to see, others dance to be seen. You dance so others may see. Good medicine Matt.

  77. Patto

    Someone sent me the link to your outtakes video, with the comment ‘whenever I’m down I watch this. It never fails’. Since then I have done the same. He was dead right :) Thanks

  78. Leathers

    Loved it !!!!
    Thank you Matt
    Keep on Dancing !!!!
    I think I will do the same, starting in my lil home town in Va
    thanks for the idea.

  79. Ed

    Your outtakes are one of the most entertaining videos I have ever seen. Happy, well-produced, action-filled and obviously very funny to participants (except Greek officials!). Many thanks for sharing.

  80. Kris

    Maine would also be a great place to come and dance. :-) We’d love to have you here. I think you’re officially one of my favorite people ever. We have similar senses of humor, so you’re rank right up there with the funniest I’ve ever read, also.

    Dance, boy, Dance!

  81. from FIN

    i liked that movie, but it came in to my mind how can you afford those trips? it would be an honour to meet Matt and if he would come to Finland it would be very exciting.

  82. dionna

    hey. yeah. i just came across your outtakes video on you tube or something like that, and i have to say that i am mighty impressed by this matt character. i am also a resident of fremont, and find this whole social experiment to be pretty much my favorite thing right now. i am pretty sure if matt wants another location to dance, my coffee shop would do the trick. it’s just right down the street on leary. alright. have an awesome day.

  83. mary

    hey matt. I found your video on utube by accident. It made me smile and boy did I need a smile that day. Just wanted to say thanks. Saw you on the Today Show and searched for your website. Found it. If you are ever in South Florida, I’ll dance with you (badly, but I’ll dance). Thanks again for sharing your experiences and incredible footage.

  84. Finn

    wow! just wow! watching that makes me smile! those African cids were cute :DD by the way, have you ever danced in Finland? if you’re not, you should! ;D keep up the good work!

  85. Michelle

    I have never been to the places you describe but now I feel as if I am a little closer. Thank you for keeping life in perspective and showing us all that it can be done.
    Viva la danse!!

    ps- there are the cutest kids here in Vancouver BC, Canada and they love having their pics taken too…come up!!!
    You’re so close!!!

  86. Andy

    Hi Matt,
    great video man!
    I was laughing my head off!
    Who is your sponsor man? Send him over to me :)
    I’m Belgian by the way and in Brussels is a little statue called “Manneken Pis”,
    Why not go dance there! If you do don’t hazzitate to contact me!
    Best regards, Andy.

  87. Jackie

    Sheer delight—the “serious” versions, as well as the outtakes! Thanks for sharing all these places and people with those of us who haven’t gotten to see them all-YET!!!

    Pretty! The best video that see in my life! It comes to dance in BRAZIL!
    I only know Salar Uyuni… but one day I will dance like you!
    I’m your admirer!

    Amazing! Muy Hermoso! Muito lindo!

  93. Arren Pineda

    first I have to say that I really enjoyed watching your videos. some of the places really wowed me especially salar de Uyuni Bolivia. If your going to do another video may I come along? We could go to the Philippines and dance near the rice terraces. Have a good day and I hope you find a job you feel comfortable with.

  94. Nicola

    Hi Matt,
    Youre really cool man!!
    Hoping to see you dance in Ayers Rock center of Australia!! hehehe
    Anyway keep up the good work, what you are doin is simply amazing, i wish i could see all those places, i love to travel, i’ll thing about doin the same thing as you, quitting my stupid job and just enjoying life with taveling around the globe.
    Our earth is the most beautiful place we could ever live!!!!
    See ya!!!

  95. Lol

    Excellent dancing in Rwanda.
    I am still wondering where is the most unexpected place you’ve done your dancing without your video. Prison maybe?

    Keep the rythm…

    PS: What are you doing in Haute Picardie all the time? Try Corsica next time. You also have a few trains there for your French train tuch and it is very nice place.

  96. I’m so… You know, these videos are awesome!! This is the best souvenir from around the World trip!! I would like to invite to Poland, to Poznan , maybe when you will go there write me immediately, so than i can meet with You, and we will dance together :) But You know, Polish people are very pleasant, so if choose the Old Square, Liberty Palace or Malta resort – it will be great!! COME TO POLAND !!!

    Take care and keep dancing!!

  97. Cindy

    I just discovered your website last week and love what you are doing. I did not know about Stride gum before you but I saw it yesterday and bought one package for 94 cents to help keep your trips going! Tell the powers that be to keep funding you since their marketing works!! Wish I could go along.

  98. Zdzisiek

    Jesteś do dupy!!! żeby być w Europie a nie zachaczyć i Poland!!!! kiepski jesteś… POZDRAWiAM! z POLSKI łosiu…

  99. Nitika

    Hey Matt…
    Lovely video and great background music…(is it an orignal song?? And which language is it in ?? )

    Warm Regards

  107. Kyle

    Love Your Video’s Matt! Sooo Funny! I’m actually going traveling in about a year and a half myself, cant wait! If I decide to make my own video, I’ll make sure I’ll send you a copy!

  108. jk

    Come to Poland! It’s a really beautiful country. You could visit Cracow and Zelazowa Wola (Chopin’s birthplace), both of which are in the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die, and the Wieliczka salt mine!

  109. nani

  110. Priyanka

    Hey Matt, just heard about from a friend and after checking out the youtube vid and the site I’ve got only thing to say: I LOVE YOU ^_^

  111. Priyanka

    Oh and how come you could be in New York but not in Toronto? 😛 If you ever decide to drop by, seek me out 😛

  112. Priyanka

    Okay dont mean to spam or anything but that post “Hey Matt…” was by ME and not Peter!(whoz PETER anyways?? damn this is scary! eeks!!) You seem to be a VERY interesting person and the world needs more of you ^_^

  113. Linukas

  117. Beetle

    Hey Matt,

    Come dance with 108,000 tennessee vol fans @ Neyland stadium in the fall.I’ll even get you tickets!I’m dancing now…………By the way,I work with a guy named Matt.

  118. Callie (insert Scottish name)

    This is great because it shows that it isn’t as easy as it looks. I felt for you when you danced in front of those monks. Awkward?…indeed.

    I’ve been a fan for a long time. You’ve helped me make my own list of places to see before I die…or get old and feeble. But, hopefully I die before then. Or maybe I’ll discover the fountain of youth in my travels. If you do, let me know ok?

  119. Cooee Steve

    Gday Matt,Everytime I see the footage I get a huge smile on my face ,Thankyou Ooroo Steve t

  120. adi

    Matt you made my day and I will always go on your site when I need a smile.
    Thank you.

    Howdy Your Chicken Danceness,
    My 2 children have ragged me for years (I’m 64 now) about my chicken dance! In fact there was a Mother’s Day card that had the “Chicken Dance” music on it that I sent my daughter this year. Now she wil eat crow when I send her your success story. Come dance on a ranch on the mexican border with the Border Patrol. The illegal aliens have their own version of the chicken dance. God Bless+ keep the dancin up and your head down.

    This is exactly the kind of dumb things I like to do that embarrasses my wife and kids. It just makes me laugh though!

    Next time you’re headed for northern California shoot me an email. I’ll get 20 or 30 of my biker friends (we ride Harleys) and we can do a dance with the Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop.

    Most important, keep dancing and making people smile and laugh.

  132. Debi

    OMG!!!! The tears are running down my face from laughing! But, it’s a good kind of laughing! Thank you so much making my day and my sides hurt! The ‘home-made’ quality of it is just right, and the music is great! The personal comments, arrows, and sound effects put just the right touches to it, and I promise to ignore the ‘man boobs’!!!!

  134. Antony Campbell

    Hi Matt ,
    Come to dance on Castro st – San Francisco , the (sisters) will love it

  135. Nidonemo

    That’s very amusing, and you made all those little children very happy! =D

    Kinda reminds me of something that would be seen in a 1980’s Sierra computer game for some reason…

  136. Deborah

    You are one lucky son-of-a-gun, wish I had thought of doing something like that, AND getting someone else to pay for it…just brilliant! Loved the video, can’t wait to see more, and the children (even the poor baby at the end), were my favorite parts!

  137. Jill

    It’s always a pleasure to watch you dancing everywhere in the world! Keep to continue… And come to dance in Namur (Belgium)

  138. That was extremely Awesome Matt! Especially the images in Rwanda! Those children are amazingly resilient and the way they jumped right in and danced with you was Brilliant!

  139. new-Garuda

    Your vid is touching and brings joy to people around the world and for me too. Why does a simple dance make this kind of connection to so many in a positive way? Don’t know, but it is great–thanks

  140. Steve

    Ever since I first watched your videos I’ve gotten the itch to see the world. You’ve opened my eyes to how many amazing things to see there are in this world and I want to see them for myself.
    It is my goal to do it in the next couple of years. I hope I have the guts to actually do it like you did. But I watch your vids on a regular basis to keep my goal fresh in my head. Thank you.

    Great video. I liked it when you danced on the Kjeragbolten in Norway. Next time go to Romania or Canada. There’s nice views in these places. Awesome video!

  143. Luis Hipólito

    Hi Matt,

    You had an amazing idea. It´s really creative and funny. Congratulations. I´m from Lisboa in portugal and I would love to see you down here for a dance in my coutry, think about it and come over.

    Hello Matt,

    Your a symbol to people everywhere!

    You are going to be known by them through
    reading articles about you and when they
    visit your website, .
    The many different places in the world that
    you are traveling to and your dancing is beautiful.

    Your film is candid and looked like you had
    so much fun doing it. When you get a chance
    maybe you can go on the “Ellen Degeneres Show”.
    She loves to dance and does it every show.
    Get going with those happy feet.

    God Bless you and all the people who helped
    you with your quest. Best always and remember
    your a shining star and a good diplomat for
    the American People and the Other People
    around the world your visited.

  146. Billy

    you are an idiot…… i don’t understand how someone would even give you money to dance like a bafoon in every part of the world…. G perhaps you were droped when you were little and now everyone feels so bad for you that they pay you to go away further every time….. to make this a short paragraph…. get a LIFE, A GIRL to FUCK or just learn to play an instrument like the recorder or something!
    I LOVE YOU MATT!!!!!!

  147. Jo Ellen Barish

    God Bless You! What a positive energy you’ve created! It was impossible to not smile and feel good watching that!

    I can’t believe reading some of these comments that anyone could have anything bad to say! Please ignore them!! We all need more positive moments in our life and you just doled out millions into the world! Thank you!

  148. Claudia

    Soy de Argentina… y tengo un pésimo inglés.. espero que entiendas castellano!
    Llegue a ver un video tuyo, bailando por todos lados! Que genial, viajar tanto, y hacernos viajar de cierta forma.
    Me encantaron los nenes de Africa, como te rodeaban bailando y saltando, colmados de alegría
    Bueno, seguiré visitando tu pagina.
    Vi que has conocido el Sur Argentino, y también las protestas… el tango, entre otras cosas…
    Hay muchos lugares increíbles en este país, que tiene relieves tan variados.
    Las Cataratas del Iguazú, el Norte Argentino, Las sierras Cordobesas, El valle de la luna, Los esteros del Ibera, La península de Valdéz, entre muchos otros lugares fantásticos!
    Felicitaciones y saludos desde Argentina, Buenos Aires

  153. Christine

    Thanks Matt for giving the world the world…I sit in my little humble home and view the world by internet. My son 29 yrs old left this life early July 3 2006. He took pictures of many of the places he had traveled and to find your video on utube gave me a little of what my son must have experienced while I wondered where in the world he was… Your choice of Music by Deep Forest was also something he listened to in his extensive collection. I found your utube video shortly after he departed and it was and still is a comfort to me somehow.
    Thankyou for sharing your image, your personality and I hope that your life will be full.Best Wishes…

    Une idée de génie! Tu as toute mon estime pour ce projet exquis que tu nous offres.

    Merci encore.

    The greatest travel movie I have ever seen, makes me long for the road again. Should be required watching for the travel impaired. Please take my reguards to the most remote parts of our one world.

    come to barcelona to dance 😉

  172. cendira carvalho

    I just love to watch the videos and think how nice it is to just celebrate and be silly like that:) It makes so much sense, in fact.

    I really appreciate the way you think about life, so ironicaly…That’s just great! I’m happy for you, and kinda envy I must say, I wish I could see so many incredible places as well. I know some of them, but 55…Not:)

    Congrats, Matt, I wish you luck, always, and keep with your project of making people smile, that’s priceless:)

    Kisses from Brasil.

  173. My kids and I, along with 100 other dancers of all races and even disabilities had a blast dancing with you today in Santa Monica.

    You are very appreciated here in L.A. and we thank you so much for coming. Both your journey and your story are inspiring. I bet San Francisco will be even more rewarding for you. 😀

  174. camsss

    heyy matt,i really like what you did,your video make me jalouse!!!i want to do the same one,can i dance with you?

  175. Flo

    I sponsor a little girl in Rwanda, Africa. The children dancing there were amazing. Would love to have a copy of that…….

  176. well,hey man,all of your travels were terrific!
    but i just do not understand very well why you dance everywhere with such funny dancing way…what on earth would you like to express?

  177. Consider going to the Mexico City Plaza where a photographer was given permission to shoot 20,000 nude people!
    Por que no? People in Mexico City also do political protests in the raw….. What is unique about nude dancing? Not everything stops when the music does. Picture that!

    Hello , I am french ! I loved these videos ! It must be great to travel in the world everywhere ! Me, anyway I would like well, there is a lot of splendid thing to be seen! Thank you for making us discover the places of the world!

  179. sonny.

    When watching you dancing all over the world and listening to that music just makes one feel so good to be alive .Keep it up matt,see if you can get a ride to the moon buddy.All the best to you,,,,,,,,,,,

  180. Melissa Boyd

    i have a deep passion for the sights of the world as well, the only problem is I am absolutely deathly afraid of flying. I found this out ironicly when I joined the US Air Force. I thought i would love traveling and flying, but instead flying manifested this intense phobia. Any tips for a gal who would love to see the world, but who can’t set foot in an airplane?

  181. Patrick

    Dude. What an amazing video. If I talked about how much it was so awsome, it will take too long, so, I’m just going to give out some places to go. Skydive, that would be a cool one, it might be a little scary, but the things you did so far, I wouldn’t doupt it. And Prince Edward Island, Canada. You didnt have any videos of Canada yet. Prince Edward Island (PEI) Is on the east coast of Canada, featuring beautiful Farm lands, purrrrrfect sight to dance :), you rock.

    Patrick, PEI, Canada

  182. Valérian ( Belgium )

    Matt you are really lucky, i love countries you visited. Your video is very Beautiful, i like your dance too.

    Try to visite Namur ( Belgium ) soon 😉

  183. Pyle Bopkas

    This pretty much answer little of my question.

    You like to travel. That great!

    My next question is where do you get all the money for traveling expense? XD

    If money is not an object, do you mind dancing on the moon or in outer space?

  184. Brian Babb

    Thanks for doing your part to spread a little joy and awareness to the world… we can’t all solve world hunger but we can make people smile.

  185. Sean Rust

    Hey Matt, I loved the video, I really enjoyed the part in Rwanda. I hope it made the kids feel loved. Are you going to come to Detroit, MI? If so e-mail me because I would like to be in the video. If I can’t be in it I would just like to know if you are coming to Detroit.

  186. Monika Alberska

    hi.. i think this is amazing. it really made me smile.. the whole day in school.. when an english teacher showed it to the class. i was amazed once again. it also gave me confidence in a goal i set for myself, which also is to travel the world to atleast one city in each country. People still think i am crazy even after me showing them these videos and what you have done,but after seeing what you have done i know i can do it. I also makes me want to travel the world even more. thank you for this. i love what you have done and are doing.

  187. gfregfre

    magnifique. (thank you)
    un tour géographique émouvant.
    prochaine étape : un tour historique ?

    again and again and again.

  193. Russell Moore

    Awesome vids and great moves, bro. I love watching them over and over. The truth is, I’m a little jealous.

    I got to wondering a couple things…
    How many frequent flyer miles do you have?

    How do you get so much time off for travel?

    Keep it up! I look forward to the next.

    I love the videos. What was the inspiration for them? Why do you travel to so many places? Is it just for fun or is there some deeper meaning. Keep up the good work.

  218. ben ford

    Disregard my last e-mail. I guess I should have searched the entire site before asked what your inspiration was. That was good that you had people funding your trips. I need to travel abroad so I can lose weight to. LOL.

  219. btw… the kids dancing with you in Rwanda total stole the show. they need their own video! awesome. totally awesome Matt. good job!

  220. Sven

  222. This was a nice break to my day at work… I was smiling for hours. You should make this video downloadable so I can fwd it to my team. You should pop on over to Afghanistan and dance for the soldiers there! I am sure my sister could use a laugh too.

  223. Matt Hollingshead (England)

    Amazing video, very inspirational, really puts life into context, life is for living and your video just encapsulates what living is!

  224. fernando Arimana ( Lima , Peru )

    Hey Matt , amazing video i have shown it to all of my friends here in Peru , you should come and film more often , there are some amazing places.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  225. Ryan

  226. Where the hell is Jesus

    Hey matt, our school have been shown your videos, was pretty inspired by the thing, But our headteacher had an idea and i thought it would be great. If you travel to frederick gough school in england and all our students do the same dance with you. Just an idea but i thought that would be great:) Thanks

  227. Tania

    Oi Matt,

  244. iwonkka

    fatnastic idea :)
    I love when you’re dancing, it makes me smile, and you made so many people happy as we can see in that video, this is great.
    I wish I could travel around the world like you, it’s actually my biggest dream.
    if you ever go to Poland again, you should visit Cracow, and of course dance here.

    thanks for that video :)

  245. iwonkka

    um, i just read the “poland” part and I see you’ve already been in Krakow ;D anyways you can come again.

  246. Evelyn

    Thank you. This is fantastic. You made me smile and laugh out loud – a great way to start my day!


  247. Albert from San Antonio Texas!

    I wanted to thank you for such an amazing video. I was really moved to see all the different people from all walks of life smiling and having a great time! It helped restore my faith in mankind and proved to me that maybe we all aren’t that different after all. The small differences we have don’t compare to how much in common every man, women, and child has to each other. I loved the video! Keep on Dancing!

  248. Fergie

    I just love your video.. you are obviously doing what you were born to do… bringing people together on a global scale with your silly, wonderful dance…. we in The Caribbean will love to dance with you….looking forward to your next video…thank you so much

  249. GS

    Wonderful. It’s always the simple things in life that are the best. This has made everyone I know smile and feel good. Thank you.

  250. Roel

    Thanks for dancing around the world. I especially liked the demilitarized zone in Koreo, haha… This is very very funny. You should get a YouTube Award!
    Roel (amsterdam)

  251. Vi

    That put a smile on anyones face.
    were you really in all those places?
    Any how I enjoyed that..
    Thank You

  252. Te Aroha

    Kia Ora (hello)
    When I watched you dancing the first time i thought what a stupid dance… what a geek… as I watched more of the clip I thought “What a kool geek” Then I saw how you gathered different people around you, that was way awesome dude.

    New Zealand Maori Girl….

  253. Dancing is so universal… if people would realize that our humanity should be more about our similaries than our differences, this would would be a better place.

    Instead of killing one another, we should all be dancing.

  254. Nino

    When are you coming to dance in Portland, OR? I know it isn’t that much of an exotic locale, but hey – come on down, we are practically neighbors.

  255. Fernando

    Muy bueno los videos!! yo soy de Argentina y veo que pasastes por Bs As, espero que sigas recorriendo el mundo, ojala algun dia yo pueda hacerlo. Saludos desde Argentina!

    pd: muy buena la manera de bailar!

  256. Cristobal Ebensperger

    WOW!!! how did you do that?.. :O
    i’m very impressed =) i think it’s the best video i have never seen…

    you’re brilliant…………. congratulations 😛

    Hey Matt;
    You’re my HERO!!
    Some small steps for Matt, some giant steps for mankind!!!!!!
    A Graany from Wadsworth, Ohio

  258. Oh man, amazing and inspiring and hilarious and just..ahhhh, the best. What an awesome reminder that the world is a small place after all. And no creepy park ride with animatronics and insanely catchy tune…even better!

    Keep doing your dance, boyyyyyy!


  259. Dwayne Animikwan

    Hey Matt,

    You forgot about the world’s largest freshwater island…(Manitoulin Island) 6 hours north of Toronto. Must dance on the bridge to the island. Google it!

  260. Mary

    A beautiful and great uplifting video. Keep them coming.

    There’s a great quote from about 100 years ago by Mark Twain:

    Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can not be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

    — Mark Twain

  261. Jim

    It is said the two things that inspire happiness in a person are, giving to others and…dancing! Add to that list, watching your video. Thanks for that, it made me smile and laugh.


  262. Donna

    What of the most hopeful and joyful things I have seen in a very long time! Thank you Matt for reminding us that we all — everyone around the world — share joy, dance and this glorious planet.

  263. Greg Chivers

    Thanks Matt!

    You just reduced a grown man to tears at work. Actually – I’m finding it strangely liberating.

    SE London

  264. OMG!!! Matt you are the luckiest man on the planet,

    To think you get to dance all over the world. I would love to be you for a day, no a year (a day would not do being you justice). I loved the videos and would like to have you come to CAPE BRETON NOVA SCOTIA to dance on the CABOT TRAIL. It has been voted one of the most scenic vacation spots in the world. I am sure you would agree and when you come we will do the HIGHLAND FLING as our ancestors are mostly Celts. It would make for a spectacular shot. If you decide to come let me know I will arrange everything.

    Keep on keeping on and boogey-on down the road. teehee

    I love the videos and can’t wait for the next installment.

    Cape Breton
    Nova Scotia

  265. Omar

    You should dance in Baghdad or Kabul… So ignorant people don’t think those great ancient cities are full of ruthless killers, but people just like us.

  266. Kris

    I just wanted to say that you have shown in your video that everyone in the world shares something in common. That we are all connected. I know it’s just a video of dancing, but it brought a tear to my eye seeing people from all over the world joined in something. Thanks!

  267. Amy

    My friends and I absolutely loved your video! If you are ever in Cincinnati, Ohio, please contact me. My Red Hat Society ladies would love to dance with you! Thanks for sharing the world with us!

  268. So Matt … how much oil has been burned to transport you all over the world?  You must have an impressive carbon footprint by now.  Do they call you Sasquatch?

  269. Steve and Jennifer Templar

    Just saw your latest video on MSN. Wow!! Just plain WOW! Imagine. No diplomats, no politicians, just a guy and a camera and some dancing brings all of these different cultures together. Good on you!!!

  270. Theo

    I don’t know why this is as interesting as it is, let alone why it has such a huge effect on me and all of the other millions of people who have seen it, but it literally makes me cry. Why?!!

    I have been to many of these places and made friends there. I do miss travelling a bit, but I’m happy to be settled now.

    You have really touched a nerve, but it’s driving me mad trying to figure out what it is.

    Excellent work, thanks so much for putting this together.

  271. mike litch

    One of the goofiest, most lovely and most heartening things that I have seen since the 1960s. It says that despite all our troubles, the soul of humankind is young and kind and tolerant and universal. You’re a great man.

  272. Jina Jacey

    It is a very inspiring and a beautiful film. It actually made me teary. Thank you so very much for making the whole world smile. your goofy dance is the loveliest thing. Thanks again!

  273. Travis

    Matt —

    I only learned of your videos yesterday and have watched them over and over.

    EVERY time I see something new and inspirational.

    Great to always see you smiling in them too.

    Pure joy.




  274. Space

    Thanks Matt for the amazing videos. I got to know them through a friend of mine a couple of days ago. It is wonderful to see you doing what you do and smiling all the time. The feelings inside me watching your videos [especially your last one] are hard to describe for what I thank you once again. Cheers, Matt, I am looking forward to new videos :]
    Many regards from Bulgaria :]

  275. Claudio Lichtenthal

    God Bless You.
    This whole thing is too good for words.

    You should dance at a soccer stadium… Maybe in Buenos Aires while watching River vs. Boca !!!

  276. Sarah Rosati

    man, that’s so powerfull!! I watched your vid on youtube “where the hell is matt 2008”, it’s awsome… it made me cry… PLEASE come to Luxemburg (country between Germany, Belgium and France)and let’s dance together!!

    Good bless you for connecting countries and Peoples!

    greetings to the world,

    sarah rosati, Luxembourg

  277. Darien McM.

    hey Matt!!!!! on one of your Youtube videos, it said…”i am planning my next trip, and this time i want people to come dance with me, so sign up here if you want to come!” or at least something like that! so… where do you sign up for that?

  278. Daniela Santos

    Can´t believe that u came to Lisbon,Portugal and i didn´t know!!!
    Keep going, you´re a great dancer, the world´s favorite:D


  279. Andreia

    I just wanted to say that your video warmed my heart today. I can not explain but it really did. In your video you show how human beings are the same everywhere and we can all connect to each other. Everybody loves to laugh and dance. Everybody!!!

  280. Angela

    Great videos~! There are some really interesting scenes that I’ve only seen in photography, but didn’t think that they really existed as such. You definitely opened me up to travel more!

    Have you tried a themed video? Perhaps one video of all the rural areas, one with all urban areas, one with all 20th century modern architecture… just throwing out some ideas. 😀

    I’ll be watching for your next one!

  281. You touched my mind and your video really made my heart warm and made me cray..TT_TT

    It’s really touching!

    You’re so nice!
    I’m really happy to watching you…

  282. Deb Carey

    Matt…that was totally awesome. It was great that those kids were just having the time of their lives with you. Some of them from underprivledged countries and you could just tell that they don’t get to do this kind of “sillyness” often. It is great what you did. I just LOVE the video….excellent and beautiful locations.

    Keep up the good work!!!

  283. Euge

    suweeeet! your bio says you’re not rich. ‘must be referring to dollars!

    keep dancing the good dance!


  284. Daniela Nakano

    Hey Matt!
    Ow my God, you are really good, congratulations! I loved your videos!!! But the best part of it is knowing that when you have a dream, you can do it because it’s worth it! I’m too jealous about you, seriously…

  285. Stefen Reilly

    Wonderful, Uplifting, Happy….

    I think that we all should get up every morning and start our day dancing along with you and the rest of the world. It would do so much for us on every level. The song is perfect

    Many thanks,
    Stefen and Sal
    Yucca Valley, California

  286. Ana

    If you do drop by the Philippines again, you simply MUST visit Cebu and dance with the famous prison inmates (see their Thriller link to Imagine 1500 orange-clad dancers moving in unison with you! I’m sure they’d be happy to do it too! :)

  287. Mair

    Loved your videos! I was sent here by another website – she was right – these are just so precious. I just love seeing the world and you dancin’!

    Hey, if you ever come to Philly, let me know – I’d come and dance with you….

    Keep it up – such joy!

  288. 대한민국

    nice to meet you~

  289. Lesley

    Beautiful. This spoke to my spirit. How wonderful to see how alike we all are when joined with dancing and smiles. :)
    Love it!

  290. Dolan

    you are amazing!
    btw, you should go dance on top of the empire state building. all the tourists would dance with you!
    thanks for the awesome video!
    and greetings from NYC and block island, since im on the block and live in NYC.

  291. Ade

    Great Job, Matt!

    I actually enjoyed the outtakes more 😉
    It’s been a while since you were in Singapore and Malaysia. A lot has changed since then. Time to dance again!

  292. wanda

    noooooooo, la verdad te pasaste! muy bueno tu video y me mato el bailee! ahora lo estoy practicando, a ree, sos un groso, lo mas saludos a ti

  293. Jayme

    Maybe this can be an answer to wars: union through stupidity and low level thinking. It is utterly incredible how rubbih can make through to the world. And most of the people dancing do not even know why they are dancing, who the shit the guy is and don’t even care to dance “his dance”.
    Guys, maybe this really is the best solution to mankind: let us unite being idiots. This reminds me of Neil Innes’s “The Idiot Song”. “How nice it is to be an idiot.

  307. Kim in Quebec, Canada

    Our family LOVES your videos Matt – keep up the good work! We homeschool our children, and keep a world map on our table (covered with clear plastic) as part of their geography studies. We collect postcards from around the world, and put a red dot sticker on every country we have postcards from. We’re now also going to add yellow dots to the map to show all the countries you’ve danced in!!

    I’m so glad you came to Montreal, it’s just too bad the weather wasn’t better. Can’t wait to see more videos! The outtakes are hilarious!
    Thanks for sharing,

  308. rocky

    Want to thank you, Matt. When I read the news (today: female suicide bombers in Iraq) and get to a point where I just can’t bear it one moment more, I click on your little video and feel again a bit of hope. I don’t understand why your video makes me cry, but I’m grateful to you that it does. Peace.

  309. Karl Dunbar

  311. MATT…thank you for having such a wonderful time…and sharing it with the world!

    I laughed and cried and was fantastic!

    PS. if you are ever in ENid, Oklahoma…let’s dance!

  312. A girl

    It’s a great experience that you have done and thank you so much for sharing it with us.
    I hope to see you someday making a video in Algeria, who knows? :)

    Keep up the good work, that’s awesome!

  313. Hi!
    (I am writing from Sweden/ Stockholm)

    I dont know if you even read your comments but if you do, I guess you already have an ide off what you have been doing to people world wide and the amount off power that you have. People including my self love you and the videos you´v made. They are fantastic and the some how make you unbelivably happy. You have the chance to make alot off difference out there and wake up reaction like ( save the world, save people in affrica, war against AIDS and so on.. people would realy litsen)

    Back to your videos.. I dont understand it .. why are they making people happy? it cant be the funy way you dance in and it cant be the people that dance with you.. or is that it? Is it the fact that people dance WITH you, the nice music in the backround, the places you visit or whats up?

    Anyways.. i wish u luck, i wish u true happines and a fantastic time in the next country you visit!


  314. Nathan

    Hi matt again do you like fish and chips if you do or don’t please e-mail me the answer and if you come to manchester you can sleep at my place!

  315. Chase

    Your videos are truly fantastic!

    If you’re making a new video, it’d be cool if you went to Iraq and Afghanistan and danced with the troops.

    (Also, let me make a selfish request: COME TO HOUSTON!!!)

  316. gail

    just watched your inteveiw with andrew denton, immediately got on net to watch you dance again you bring a smile to so many faces, thank you take care and keep on dancin’ cheers

  317. Susan Davies

    Good on ya, Matt. You are truly one of God’s chosen to bring joy to the world when it needs it the most.
    Keep it going.

  318. Murray Clarke

    Wow – I truly am amazed by all your videos and you have inspired me to keep on travelling. Just got back from Peru and Bolivia, saw the Salt Flats although in the dry season – Wicked!! By the way what make of green screen did you use?!?! LOL!

  319. daniela

    hey matt

  321. Naoual

    All my respect to Matt.
    Just to be carefull when travelling to forests.
    Why don’t you visit Algeria?
    Concerning kids, they are playing commenting news in arabic.

  322. Mary, Nick, Andy and Matt

    WOW! Your video is so fantastic. Dance is a universal language and you have it mastered. Have fun, make friends, and dance, dance dance. If you are ever in Minnesota, let’s dance!

  323. robyn

    Dear Matt,
    I have the same little piece of extra cartilage sticking out on the rim of one ear and a little hole in the same place on the other ear called a Darwinian Tubercle.
    this is kind of amazing cuz I didn’t know my ears were anything but normal.

    and I’m left handed?

    we could be twins except I am twice your age and female and that pretty much blows the twins thing.

    absolutely loved your film!

  324. sven

    you are one of the worlds’ greatest people. you are a great inspiration to many! keep up the good work! oh, sorry…keep on dancing!!!!

  325. Hola, Melissa, Matt, un abrazo, esta magnífica idea vuestra me ha dado muchísimas alegrías. Me lo envío un amigo del instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, Emilio, que además lleva un programa de radio interesantísimo llamado ” A través del Universo” ( link to )Es increíble lo que se puede generar con sólo “bailar”. Si algún día pasan por Granada, España, llámennos al +34 958 302412 ó al +34 636275078 (raúl y susana), nuestra casa es de ustedes; e igual dederían incluir en la entrega 09 del vídeo danzante, un plano de Cuba. En la bahía de la Habana, justo en el faro de la fortaleza de la entrada, en la cúspide, hay unas vistas tremendas, ahora cuidado Matt no tires la señal con tus pasillos tan libres.
    Un abrazo inmenso y sostenido a los dos, amigos. Sigan haciendo cosas tan bellas y buenas. Hay que vivir sí, y pasársela bien se seguro también.
    Hasta pronto y mucha suerte.
    Ánimo y mucha luz para los dos, igual un poco de noche para ver estrellas…y descansar.
    Cha, cha, chá.
    Ah, también en Palencia, España, hay un cristo bellísimo en el mirador de la ciudad. Melissa podría volver a pintarle las uñas mientras Matt danza ante la cámara en el trípode.

    Simply Amazing and Inspiring. It brought me out of my shell to see the the power of the people to simply dance, laugh and share in the joys of life together.

    Best in all that you do ….

  327. Pancho

    increible casi lloro al ver tu video no puedo creer que hallas logrado todo eso, hacer bailar a tantas personas en tantos lugares diferentes eres toda una inspiracion para saeguir adelante, has demostrado que en el munod aun hay esperanza de un mundo lleno de felicidad

    Hey! I just discovered your video on Tyra. I just wanted to stop by and say that it was one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen on youtube. Great work! -CBC

  329. gregory

    have to say matt, when i need a cheer up i will watch a video of yours, this restores some of my faith in humanity and this /these videos will certainly keep a smile on my face for the rest of the day, reminds me of some of my travels when i was younger, seems like wherever you start dancing it is contagious and others soon join, thanks

  330. Regina DeFalco Lippert

    I’m so sorry I didn’t know about this when you came and danced in San Franisco! Your video cheers me up when it seems the world is falling apart – it restores my faith in humanity, as others have said.
    Come back to San Francisco and dance, and let me know when you do, because I want to dance with you!
    Keep on truckin’!!!

  331. Verónica Pérez

    Hii maatt i know that many people has invited you to go all around the world and is a little difficult to visit everything but you should comee to Venezuelaa i want to dance with youuu hahaa (K)

  332. Gary in Sandy Eggo

    Was recently directed to your 2008 youtube clip to look at, and in turn sent it to thousands of others via a forum I’m on. My comment when I sent it to others was “Odd, Weird, Strangely Compelling.”

    I’ve since watched it many times. Every time I watch it, I’m left with a warm feeling. I’m sure I could articulate it better if I sat here for many hours trying, but I’m not going to do that. I’d rather watch it again.

    The music included with the 2008 piece is beautiful, and I’m sure is a big part of what makes your presentation so . . . comforting. I love your interaction with people, and their response to you.

    Regards, Gary in Sandy Eggo

  333. Mishaun in Chicago

    HEY MATT!!! I just cant get enough of your vids. I love seeing all the places you’ve traveled to. lol. The whole concept of “dancing all over the world” is so fresh and fun!! Gosh I’m upset that I missed your arrival here in Chicago., But all is well. *I really couldn’t say where else you could go…seems like you’ve been EVERYWHERE! :O*

    BTW~ Loved you on TYRA!! LOL! :)

    Hi Matt!
    Hello from Germany. Your video was published here in Germany in Wolfsburg by a local newspaper and I more than enjoyed your fabulous experiment. I simply love your video and I’ll tell everybody in my surrounding about it. It’s a real phenomenon! Thanks Matt. I’m a radio amateur, that’s my way to travel around the world. Your way is much more exciting but anyway I think we both love foreign cultures. Congratiolations again for your wonderful video!

    Yours Markus (DL4AAZ is my callsign on the radio)

    Reminded me to come to your sight again.
    When folks come up and join your dance, especially the kids, mmmmmmm, heart-gasm.

  344. Kelvin @ taipei

  347. MJ

    I have shared this with everyone I know – thanks for making me so happy it brought tears to my eyes – no lectures – no hidden agendas or messages – no preaching. Just a reminder that we can find joy and happiness in a moment in time with total strangers and DANCE !!

  348. Gennea


    I have been watching your dancing videos for years now and I want to tell you that I absolutely LOVE them. They always cheer me up when I am down. I think the concept is amazing and I love how it shows that even in some of the places where there is war, you can find PEACE and spread it through dancing as a universal idea.

    Also, my life goal is to visit every country in the world. Have you been able to do that yet? How close are you? I saw that we have also stood in 12 of the same places. I noticed that you are missing Colombia though – your best bet for there would be the Plaza Bolivar in Bogota or the Fortress Wall in Cartegena. Also if you come to Dallas, I know tons of people that would love to dance with you here!



  349. mandy

    hi. matt,
    you have to come to ireland, there are so many places to dance here. the giants causeway is a beauty. I am in dublin here you would have to dance across the halfpenny bridge. good luck on your travels,

  350. stew smith UK

    absolutely hillarious. very original and a great way to show all of the interesting places around the world that you have visited. stew smith UK

  351. Cynthia


    As a woman of a certain age, all I could wonder is whose kid is this and must his parents be so proud of his dancing! Hope you have had the same love and support of your biological family as you have had from all your dance partners who are your family of choice. Looking forward to the next installment! Peace.

  352. Not to sound silly or anything, but one day I want to do the Matt dance with my children. We’ve been separated for 7 1/2 years since they were young and it would be a great way to make memories and fill in all the holes, Matt.

    Thanks for the hope.

    Cheers, Karey

    P.S. I promise, I did NOT notice the man boobs. Honest.

  353. Meara

    That was awesome! i whould be so scared at that rock!

    i was laughing out loud! Everytime i feel sad, i watch these movies. it makes me happy.

    I want to see more! come to the Netherlands again!


  354. Hi Matt
    My name is Carlo and I live in Rome Italy,
    Have I noticed that in Italy you are alone past to Venice but that you would tell under the Colosseum of it of a beautiful dance? I have discovered by chance you and you have made me dream with your spontaneity and joy, simple and contagious. I would like to dance once with you at least. In the meantime I have put your video on my blog and on facebook, because all have to know you and to travel with the imagination as I have done me. I hope that this dance together we will do very soon.
    My name is Carlo Peparello, 34 years, and I live in Rome Italy. Ciao Matt!

    Love your video, it is inspiring in some way.
    You should come to Colfax WA, in your next video. ha ha. It is a small town in the middle of wheat fields.. no one really knows about it unless you live here.

  357. Bernardo Ruas

    Hey, your videos are awesome XD i hope that you continue traveling (you luck bastard) XD and i hope that you visit Portugal in your next video XD

    Hi Matt,
    I wanted to tell you that I am so truly inspired by you! This video is so indicative of what an amazing emotion dancing can bring to a human life! Thank you for all the work this took you it is truly amazing!!!!

  361. Janel

    I just watched your video on you tube. I have to say, it really made my day. It is great to know that in a world of such turmoil people still like to have fun and dance horribly with a stranger from a whole other continent. Great video,mabye someday I will live the dream and show off my own lame dancing skills to the world! GREAT JOB!!!! love from Alberta, Canada.

  362. Michael Littlewood

  364. Silvia from Romania

    Hello Matt,
    congrats for this project, I found it by chance on youtube and it’s great! Could you please tell me what song this is ? resp. what singer, what language, a title (or even send me the song?) It’s so full of energy!
    Good luck with future projects!!

  365. A friend sent me your video today. it brought back wonderful memories of my own trip round the world.

    Perhaps I’ll start chewing the gum from your sponsors so they keep sending you out.


  366. Jenny

    I absolutely loved your video!! And I honestly think you should have kept most of the outtakes in! Especially the one where the elephants begin to advance and the Athens one where the guard comes and asks you to stop! And especially the one with all the little kids. Amazing, however did you save enough money to do that trip!? Looks absolutely incredible :)

  367. Jenny

    Hello again! Ignore my last comment! Just watched the Dancing 2006 after the 2008 one and realised you did include a few of the outtakes :) amazing, Jenny.

  368. Aga


    That was the most positive dancing I’ve ever seen!!!:-) you made my day!!:-))
    All the best.

    Matt, come to Indonesia next time. There are so many interesting islands here you can dance and show the world.

  370. hadley

    Hi I am eleven years old and I live in Nahville TN. I really love your videos and I was wondering if you could make another one talking about just the traveling part and exactly what part makes you keep wanting to do what you do .

  371. Ed Brogden

    Matt – this video just makes me smile smile smile. I can’t stop smiling. You really hit on something here. Thanks!!

  372. Jon of Baltimore

    I heard the story of your video on NPR today.

    Then showed it to a few people…

    I have to report that your insight is confirmed. You are wiser than you think. Your words ring true in Baltimore, Maryland as I would guess in many other parts of the world.

    Thank you for putting the site up and dancing. Your gifts are appreciated here for sure.

    Keep on traveling, dancing and sharing….

    The world wants to share in the loving.

  373. Hans

    Encuentro fantastica la idea, ya que nos hace soñar que todos podemos viajar por el mundo o al menos en nuestra mente acompañar a este loco que se atreve a recorrer el mundo con su camara en este bello proyecto

    un abrazo desde chile


  374. Rommel

    That’s a great video, that’s the world and his people no wars no politics just people having fun. I think you have come to Peru and dance in Machu Picchu one of the world wonders. Good job!!!!!!

  383. Dakota

    I followed a link here posted on Facebook by a former classmate.
    Thinking it was a joke, I settled in and watched.
    Little did I know it would bring an actual tear to my eye. Yea.. not the “bad dancing” as it were, but the realization that no matter what country, what race, what age ~ we all seem to get along when we dance. How very freeing. Good work.

  384. Tim Higgins

    Hey Matt
    Consider Blarney castle in Ireland for your next video.
    all the best
    Give me a mail if you make it and I’ll take ya for a pint of the black stuff.

  385. Musthafa

    Hi Matt –

    I like your video! I watch it every day..the persons voice is magic like.

    I noticed one thing. When you come to India next time try to Visit companies like Google, Microsoft, Infosys, TCS, WIPRO, Patni etc. We represent a wide chunk of worlds IT infrastructure. You can meet real nice and amazing people may be we could meet up too.

    Thanks for your work

  386. Moises

    When I saw the video and all the cultural diversity, I have the enormous feeling of being proud to be human!! we are such a great species!! we are so diverse and unique and in a way we are one! Thank you for transporting us to places we never though they would exists!! Keep it going!!

    All the best!!

  387. Megan (:

    Hi (: When i went New York on holiday last week…We sat in times sq every night..And every night we watched where the heel is matt and a massive billboard at times sq. Everyone was just pointing at it and dancing around with you…Abosolute genius idea! But where did you get the idea from??

  388. Scott Johnson

  393. ayi

    hi! Matt i do enjoy to watch your travel video, anyway i live in Thailand, why don’t u come to shoot the camara at Bangkok or some famous place in Thailand ^ ^

    u can contact me, it would be an honour haha

  394. Furdea Cornel

    It is so great how such a “little thing” can make so much people open and happy. Probably, at the begining, you didn’t realize how much good you did to people who watch your video…keep up the good work. It is worth it to come to Romania (eespecialy to Transilvania). If you want to come I would be more than happy to help you around here with your trip.
    Keep up the good work

  395. Ken Evans

    This is great fun Matt, wish I’d thought of doing something like it myself!!! lol

    Good luck in all your newest ventures ;o)

  396. Marion Madsen Lauritzen

    So GREAT! We have a gorgeous world, full of wonderful and interesting people! As I travel (not as much as Matt!) I often think: look at all these people NOT fighting.
    In Germany, I saw an elderly woman fall down. People came from all directions to help her–a cyclist, a pedestrian, motorists.
    On a Scandinavian ferry an unruly passenger was approached by a Native American, (when everyone else was avoiding him) who asked: “What do you need?” The guy was hungry, so the Native American got him some food.
    Matt’s videos show the good side of the world. And I love it!

  397. Rosana Santiago

    Matt, você mostrou para o Mundo que não precisamos de armas, guerra, mortes em vão. Todos somos dotados de uma enorme capacidade de ser feliz. Se todos os governantes do Mundo se juntassem e dançassem com você apenas uma vez, você conseguiria mudar o Mundo literalmente com seu espírito de UNIÃO. Eu vou esperar para ver isso, pois ACREDITO EM VOCÊ!

  398. Darius

    Love your work Matt. I even think it isn’t photoshopped, seriously ! I have only 1 question. How did you raise the capital to travel to so many amazing places ?

  399. One of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Having been to dozens of countries I tell Americans to get a passport and get out there… the world can be so cool… even if you can’t dance as well as Matt. Cheers – Mal

  400. almilhazes

    Just great, this video gives me a serious good mood, thank you Matt, come to Portugal, ill meet you for a dance!

  401. pawz

    It cheers me up every time I watch this vid.Well done Matt, you have given us all a treasure. I especially like the Indian ladies where you matched your dance to theirs – that was lovely, but so many places to bring a grin and delight in watching people being happy for five minutes in their lives.

  402. Hey Matt, Saw you on mnbc Caught on Tape. Then looked you up on You Tube today. Awesome! Even a bad dance looks great because of the joy you obviously exude and the joy of all the folks who dance with you! I would love to dance in your next video…Think Stride would pay for my trip as well?

  403. Katarina

    Hello Matt,

    thanks a lot for the smiles your videos put on my face…..each time I feel good after seeing it! :)
    Hope will see you dancing in croatia some day! Great place to dance. :)
    Best wishes and continue please! Think your messages make a lot of people happier. :)

  404. Alec

    Very nice, you are really amazing bringing people together as one.
    you should really come to Michigan. romeo high school, people will appreciate it.
