I know, you've probably seen Matt dance already.

But Dadrat just discovered Matt yesterday and sent me the link, and I watched it again and it made me cry again (as we know, I'm very sappy) so I thought I'd post it again.

Where is Matt? 2008

In case you haven't seen Matt yet, either, hope this brightens your day!

You can never have too much Matt. I also like his outtakes.

Heather Lane said...

This is so funny. I just discovered Matt a few days ago. Definitely lifts the spirits.

JES said...

Yeah, have seen before. But as the saying goes, I'm happier seeing Matt dancin' every day than Ted Danson on just about any.

Laurel said...

This is my first encounter with Matt so thanks!

I think I've seen some of his dance moves on a Charlie Brown episode.

Charles Gramlich said...

I've never heard of matt.

Dawn VanderMeer said...

Very cool. People are people. Why do there have to be wars?

Awww, I forgot how much I love this. I totally cried again too.

magolla said...

*sigh* I LOVE this vid! I'm smiling and laughing out loud, both of which I think adults don't do nearly enough of.
Thanks for the reminder to enjoy life, Moonie!

Precie said...

OMG! Have never seen that before. Even before posting this comment, I went and posted that on FB! LOVE it!

Who knew all you had to do is dance around the world and you'd get a book deal?

Thanks for sharing this. I'm still smiling. What a guy!

Malanie said...

I have a sudden desire to book a flight, somewhere, anywhere!

Miriam S.Forster said...

Wow. This seriously made my day. In fact, it may be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Thanks! (This almost makes up for that link you tweeted about the spider. Ew, ick, yuck.) :)

moonrat said...

but Miriam, I SPECIFICALLY told you not to watch it!!!!!!

majo said...

Seeing Matt always makes my day, even when he makes me cry. Thanks!

Miriam S.Forster said...

True... I suppose you're not to blame for my compulsion to look at things I'm told NOT to look at. :-)

And the Matt post makes up for it. In fact, I think I'll go watch it again...

suzie said...

this is awesome!

Jemi Fraser said...

Wow! First time I've heard of Matt and I love it :) What a spirit lifter - can't wait to share!

Maree Anderson said...

I looooove these vids! And I always cry...like just now, when I watched it again - thank goodness I work from home!

My kids adore these, so thanks for posting - they'll be chuffed!

BTW, Auckland (New Zealand) was in this latest one, too. Go Auckland!

Stephen Parrish said...

I loved seeing this again. Thanks.

You know, you see something like Matt dancing, and it just makes you feel like maybe there is hope for the world after all.

I love Matt! I haven't watched in too long, though, so getting a reminder is great. I also didn't even last a single minute before I got the waterworks, too. A lot of us let ourselves fall into tiny worlds with grumpy people, and Matt reminds us that the world is huge and people are worth dancing about. Thanks for pointing him out again.

moonrat said...

I'm glad it makes other people cry, too. (In a non-bullying way.) Before, I wondered if I was just a spoon. (Well, I am, but maybe not about this!)

Terri said...

Moonie - thank you. My life is in a rotten place right now and seeing Matt reminded me that there is sunshine out there and that the clouds will part. Also made me cry, but in a good way!

Alli said...

Moonie, thanks for reminding us about Matt. He is awesome. I have watched his vids many, many, many times over with my kids. And everytime we watch them, my three year old asks me why I'm crying. :-) I'm a softy, just like you and some of the others, Moonie. Maybe they should make Matt a UN Ambassador and get the politicos to do some dancing. :-)

Precie said...

I keep going back again now. And every time, I'm more and more struck by how much MORE it moves me when all the people join in, especially kids.

I'm going to go watch it again right now! :)
