Where the Hell is Matt? I'm sure I'm waaay behind the curve on this, since I only saw this for the first time today, but I'm guessing I can't be the only one. It's really charming![More:]
A couple of bonuses: How the Hell Did Matt Get People to Dance With Him? and What the Hell Inspired Matt's Crazy Idea in the First Place?
Thanks so much for posting this. For some reason, it left me in tears, but maybe I've just had an overemotional weekend. Aces, though.

Nah, Twiggy, I'm deliberately not watching it right now because it always makes me lose my shit, and I was kind of planning on going grocery shopping momentarily.

I don't know what it is, maybe I am overly sentimental, but I can't help but cry when I see Matt's videos. I've dreamed my whole life of traveling the world and doing something positive. Matt's dancing is so simple and really shows how we're all the same.

Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who cried at this.

Yeah, it's pretty breathtaking. Something about the universality of people smiling, dancing, being so utterly themselves in a moment just for its own sake.... And it's so sincere -- no irony, no inside joke, no snarky punchline. It's really quite sweet, and very moving.

I must note that Buernos Aires had the strongest supporting cast. Overall Awesome.

Runner ups to Fiji and Sweden. So cool.

Ever hear of this guy named Mahir?

Yeah, this is really great and it's even better when you learn the backstory and how it really just happened by accident. It's one of those "only on the internet" tales.

I have cried on occasion, too. It's one of my favorites. I try to watch a different person at each location every time through.
