My favorite online video personality is Matthew “Matt” Harding of the “Where the Hell is Matt?” video series.
Matt was a video game designer who, in 2003, took time off from work to travel and see the world.
As a joke to family and friends, he set up the site, “Where in the Hell is Matt” to allow everyone to keep track of his travels.
On a suggestion from a friend, Matt chose to update his travel status with video recordings of him doing his “funny dance” at different locations. The videos were so entertaining that they were passed around the Internet and Matt became an instant Internet celebrity.
The makers of Stride Gum took notice and offered to sponsor Matt’s future travels if he’d filmed his dancing.
His “Where the Hell is Matt? (2008)” video has been watched over 40,900,000 times on YouTube since 2011 and Harding’s YouTube channel is ranked “#83 – Most Subscribed (All Time)” as of December 22, 2010. (Wikipedia)
Matt has just released his latest travel dance video for 2012 and already it has been viewed over a million times on YouTube alone.
His videos make me smile and remind me what is possible in the world.
