CNN Go journalist James Durston (@SemajNotsrud) asks me this question in an email interview:

"What other motivation did you have when making this vid?"

Publishes my response as an answer to this question:

"Why the hell would you spend good money dancing around the world like an idiot?"

That seems like some shady and unethical (never mind obnoxious) journalism, doesn't it?
Where the hell is Matt now? And what the hell is he up to?
Grab the Kleenex, sit back and blub as Matt Harding once again proves that bad dancing is a global phenomenon

  1. Journalists always spin; even a reporter for local free weekly described me as rehabbing raptors instead of hunting with them (socially incorrect in the animal-rightist SF Bay Area).  Besides, if he'd asked you the latter question as it was worded, it would have pissed you off. Like the guy above said, don't let the pettiness bug you. Your videos have made tens or hundreds of thousands of people happy.

  3. unfortunately there's nothing new under the sun.. Good that today you can point it out for people to be aware of the spin! Imagine 15 years ago.. You couldn't have done anything..

    Keep dancing! :-)
