It’s Hard To Be Mad When You’re Shaking Your Booty

I love to dance. Whenever I’m at a function, the majority of the time I’ll eventually end up on the dance floor. Particularly after I’ve consumed a couple of glasses of wine. And I’m convinced that if the world spent more time dancing, we’d have far less troubles in this world. After all, it’s pretty hard to be angry when you’re ‘shaking your booty’. Or so to speak.

And who understands that better than Matt Harding, a former games designer from Connecticut who is known as ‘Dancing Matt’ for his viral videos that show him dancing in front of landmarks and street scenes in various locations around the world --- any country he can reach.

His video series, known as 'Where the Hell is Matt?' has been viewed by millions across the world, and in his latest video, he’s seen dancing up a storm even in troubled Syria and the notoriously private nation of North Korea.

Take a Look:



Don't you just love this? We should dance more often!

  1. I do most of my dancing in my own kitchen - it would be too cruel to inflict it on innocent bystanders!

  5. This was great! The perfect 'wake me up' for this dark winter's morning. I suspect you're right - we probably would have fewer problems around the world if we danced more!

  8. It is illegal for me to dance in the United States. That have laws that protect people from cruel and unusual punishment. I can't imagine visiting all the countries. What a great life to have.

    1. Hahahaha...you sound like my hubby. He never gets up to dance unless it's a romantic, slow song.

      Yup, this guy has a great life. Just travel around the world and dance with people.

  9. Aww...watching that made me smile from ear to ear! Thanks, Martha!

    As for me, I'm afraid I'm a hopeless klutz, but I do dance when no one else is around.

  11. How very very wonderful -- I love to see how people across borders and cultures share such fundamental joys. This has been well-timed for me, because I was so troubled thinking of what I'd watched in this documentary yesterday about Liberia's warlords. This is beautifully uplifting -- thank you!!

    1. This video is a wonderful example of how similar we are to each other. Deep down inside we all want to be happy, to get along, to dance!

      I'm glad you found something positive after something negative.

  13. It's so funny, you posted this right on the day when I had my first dance practise of the year! And what a fun day that was - we messed up so badly during one of the more formal dances, and it just made us laugh SO much! Love my dance group!
