Dance Dance Evolution [YouTube, GMA] . . . Matt Harding just completed his second trip dancing his way around the world with an appearance on Good Morning America. The sublime dorkiness of his first video [YouTube, MeFi] turned him into InternetDancingSensationMattHarding and prompted an outpouring of joyful support, TV appearances, victimization by a YouTube identity thief, tribute videos, and . . . a corporate sponsorship. His next video will include footage from Antarctica , but the real question is whether we'll see the footage from the Parthenon where he was arrested for doing his white boy jig.

That sounds tricky.

oh, that's the guy from the parthenon deal huh? I was wondering why someone would want to dance in-front of the parthenon.

This guy has nothing on Father Liam Finnegan.

This is exactly what my first thought was. Still, Matt Harding hasn't had a heart attack yet... (do you think he'd bequeath MeFi his car so we could have a raffle?)

I watched the original video while the theme from "the pink panther" was playing. Sublime.

His story makes me want to go dance at the Parthenon - dancing is holy.

Cool. I just happened upon this in Youtube, did a search in MeFi to see if people were talking about it. I loved it when he was dancing in front of the elephants and they went to scoot him away with their trunks and he gets spooked. Funny. The song's cool too. Sweet Lullaby by Deep Forest. I'm always the last one to know about these things.
