Matt’s New Video Hits The Internet

It’s been a long wait, especially since myself and around 70 other people from the Salt Lake area hoped to be in it. Unfortunately, we didn’t make the cut. 🙁 Matt is promising an outtakes video later, including scenes from our effort which I documented in my Post “Matt Dances in Salt Lake: Literally“.

I was going to wait until the outtakes video was complete, but when I went to one of my favorite web sites today – Astronomy Picture of the Day – and saw it featured, I decided to jump on the bandwagon now. This is unusual content for an astronomy site, but I guess Matt makes such feel-good videos, they couldn’t resist.

Note: If you want to read the astronomy site’s take on the video after today, you’ll have to go to their archive at the bottom of the page and load it in, using today’s date.

The video is only a couple of weeks old and already has almost 3 million hits. I love what Matt does because he’s an American who inspires people from all over the world to just come out and have some fun. We definitely need more like him!

I’ll never be sorry I showed up at the Great Salt Lake that day!

    Matt certainly gets around! Must be quite an experience.

    The video is great, even without us. And it was fun to see how Matt does what he does.

    I love the part where they’re in front of the jet giving arm signals. Matt does things in a democratic way, asking participants to come up with their own ideas. I think it makes it more fun.

    I hope we don’t look too goofy sloshing around in the volcanic mud when the sequel comes out. 🙂
