I'm not sure why this video resonated so strongly with me on an emotional level, but it did.
The story goes that Matt is a self-described "deadbeat from Connecticut" who back in 2003 quit his job in Australia and traveled around Asia. He created a site to keep his friends and family informed of his whereabouts. One day, someone videotaped him doing this goofy dance he does. Well, the goofy dance video got noticed a couple of years later by the people at Stride Gum. They paid for him to travel around the world AGAIN doing the goofy dance (and handing out gum, I guess). The response was so great that Stride sent him around the world a third time, but this time Matt invited all the people who had e-mailed him to do the goofy dance along with him.
If you want more details, you can find them here or here. In the meantime, this video has been viewed over 2 million times on YouTube. Not bad for a goofy guy doing a goofy dance. Not bad for Stride Gum. Maybe this internet video thing is for real, huh?
