I don’t know Matt. He allowed anybody to have their picture taken with him AFTER the event. That’s why my hair is “Matted” down. Sorry.
I estimate there were about 70 of us who showed up to participate in the latest “Where The Hell Is Matt” dancing video by wading into the water at the Salt Lake Marina and giving it our all, while sinking into the sand during our efforts. I would put the age range around 5 to 80 years old.
There are many people who have never heard of Matt’s 2008 video, but I would have liked it if the media had shown up to give it a boost. They are always looking for positive stories to tell and this had to be the best show in town. I don’t know what constitutes a “viral” video, but 37 million views of an utterly un-promoted video ain’t bad.
I think the people there felt the same as I did after seeing Matt’s efforts. I am proud that at least one American is portraying us in a positive light by bringing some much needed and harmless fun to the world. He gave some basic instructions, but let people be themselves. He asked for ideas, and then asked for a consensus. Very democratic.
Sure hope we make it into the new video!
