Matt Harding used to design video games for a living. Sitting at a desk all day creating ever more violent video games made him question if there might be a better way to spend his time.
In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia to travel through Asia until his money ran out. He created the website, Where the Hell is Matt? so his family and friends could keep track of his travels.
It was on this trip that his travel companion suggested that Matt perform a funky dance while he recorded it. He spliced together footage of himself performing this dance around the world and became one of the first YouTube celebrities.
Here’s one of his famous viral videos –
