I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but, if you're not: the page you linked notes that the guy who made Where the Hell Is Matt? was being sarcastic when he said it was a hoax.

If you're being sarcastic about his being sarcastic, well, that's just confusing!

Fun video, but the music triggers instant flashbacks to songs I can barely remember. It's a very strange sensation having that 2-second "oh, that song! shit, what is it again? dammit!" and then having it repeat over and over again.

See now, at first I thought this was gonna be like Where's Matt but featuring the local dance styles of 100 different places. So I got kinda excited, cuz that might've been kinda interesting. Then I realized it was a guy dancing in different rooms and some of the dances weren't even all that different but they seemed it because the music was different. So while he was having fun, I was a little let down because I was expecting more of a sociological study of dance and less of a guy dancing to different songs in different rooms.

But hey, that's just me. I'm notoriously difficult to please. :)

Doing something like this every day for 100 days takes a lot of commitment, and I appreciate that. Good for him for doing it, and it's nice that it came out interesting enough that strangers on the internet want to watch the whole thing.

I'm pretty pop-culture ignorant - I only recognized about 20 of the songs.

I don't know if it was 100 days, but it wasn't 100 different places or 100 different dances.
I like it though.

I think the really amazing thing here is that this guy owns at least 100 different shirts.

100. Bizarre Love Triangle / New Order

The pasty guy who kinda dance-creeps in from the right sporting the grown out bowl cut, the uber-molestache, and the 70's vest really makes the movie.

I suspect my wife would opine that he dances better than I do. For this, I own to some jealousy. And jesus, people still listen to New Order - see, you fuckwits from tenth grade - I have taste. Even if I don't have moves.

And one of those shirts is a sky blue and has a big orange kitten on it.

Mrs. flapjax is an instant fan. I liked it too.

He definitely wore some of the same shirts more than once. That awesome kitten shirt included.

Today is the day that I learned that you can dance to anything. Even Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ratatat, and Go Team. Making it look good may still not be possible.

dipsetmuthfucka, who has been linked here before proves that you can dance, and dance well to pretty much anything.

He made a dance video every day for more than a year. I guess practice makes perfect...

I was worried that one of his dances was going to be the creepy tuck it in Silence of the Lambs dance. It happened when I saw the dance that had the garage door rising. I really need to stop watching that movie when it shows up on AMC.

098. Hong Kong Garden / Siouxsie & The Banshees

I only remembered the chorus of this but I actually looked at the lyrics for this the other day:
Junk floats on polluted water
An old custom to sell your daughter
Would you like number 23?

Slanted eyes meet a new sunrise
A race of bodies small in size
Chicken chow mein and chop suey
WTF? It is supposedly anti-racist but, er, yeah.

The video was made by a friend of mine in the Yale design MFA program as an assignment. He wants me to let you all know that after the first month of dancing he acquired more pants. He appreciates the comments about his kitten shirt. It did in fact take him 100 days.
