World Travel – the Where The Hell Is Matt? Version

World Travel via a Silly Dance!

I must admit, I’m a little bit envious of Where The Hell Is Matt? He’s the dude who’s become an internet celebrity by doing a silly dance at some of the world’s most famous landmarks – and gets paid for this awesome way of World Travel. That’s right, he gets paid to be silly full time. I’ve done long periods of being silly for free! So I’m definitely trying to work out how he does it so I can do some silly travel stuff full time as well!

I don’t mind going on the odd junket – I’ve already been on three this year to Fiji, England/Wales and South Africa. But Where The Hell Is Matt? has taken the all expenses paid World Travel trip to an another whole new level!

My understanding of his story was that he ended up quitting his job and was given the idea by a travel companion to do a silly dance in Asia.

Anyway, this silly World Travel idea turned out to be a blessing in disguise – the videos posted on the internet became viral and went around the world in an insane amount of time. He scored a couple of round the world trips, including one where some of the locals ended up dancing with Matt.

Where The Hell Is Matt? is still doing this awesome job. I say, good on him, as I’d be doing the same if I was in his position.

So, what the hell am I talking about? Check out one of Where The Hell Is Matt’s Silly Dance Videos.

    This is too funny, I was just talking to my sister today about this guy. It’s been a while since I watched his videos. I used to watch them over and over while planning my rtw. Sometimes it would bring tears to my eyes because it would make me so excited. I loved these videos and always wondered what happened to matt?

    It all got a little bit too predictable for me. It’s great that it went viral but you see so many other copycats now doing the same. First time I watched the video I thought it was great.

    These sort of things start out without a financial incentive. I’m pretty sure Matt didnt set out to make money or have travel companies sponsor him. He did it out of the love and you know sometimes these things pay off.
