Dance badly, live free

Dance badly, live free

Back in April, I posted a link to the funny Gratitude Dance, 2 fellows from Victoria named Brad and Matt. This evening, some friends and I were watching some YouTube videos on their new flat screen TV. One clip somebody suggested was Matt, doing the same silly dance at remarkable places all over the world. Only it wasn’t the same Matt. This guy lives 3 hours south in Seattle. Huh?

Matt of Seattle is clearly the first with Videos from 2005, 2006, and 2008. The “Gratidudes” of Victoria are doing something similar but frame it as a dance of gratitude.

What’s really funny is Matt is being paid to travel the world to do this. Why? The videos have over 30 million hits.

2008, the third, in groups:

2005, by himself:

How does he get people to dance with him:

More videos and his site:

Technology is bringing us some truly remarkable occupations.

    Hi Jacob
    Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I mentioned this. Perhaps my comment was not explicit enough either. (laughs) If you pay attention to the video its very clear he’s being sarcastic & ironic. The shadow example he gives is probably due to a wide angle lens which distorts the foreground.

    I think the edge was because he’s getting a bunch of negative feedback which tends to feed on itself. Some people are completely missing the point of it.
