It’s here… Where the Hell is Matt??? [the book]

Matt Harding’s groundbreaking, moving, hilarious video has been viewed on the Internet over 70 million times. Named Time magazine’s #1 viral video of 2008, it is a genuine worldwide sensation. Some viewers laugh. Some viewers cry. Almost every viewer has sent it on to friends and family. Only in the 21st century could a videogame designer quit his job to travel and become famous on every continent of the planet — just for dancing badly.


Now everyone who has wondered why Harding set out on his travels, how he developed his hard-to-describe but easy-to-recognize dance style, and what the locals thought of his need to dance can indulge their curiosity in his first book, Where the Hell is Matt?: Dancing Badly Around the World. A remarkable travelogue featuring over 250 photographs taken in locations near and far, including Tanzania, Bolivia, Rwanda, South Korea, Norway, Morocco, Australia, Japan, and Kyrgyzstan, Harding’s book takes the reader on a dancing, traveling adventure that only he has experienced, including:


  • Being arrested for just dancing badly in Athens
  • What it’s like to try and dance in zero gravity during parabolic flight
  • How he joined a chorus of Bollywood dancers outside Mumbai
  • The feeling of dancing under the wary eyes of communist soldiers in North Korea
  • The chill of dancing in an indoor ski resort in Dubai
  • Why he thinks llamas built the Incan city of Machu Pichu
  • Dancing in the shadow of the giant heads of Easter Island
  • What it’s like to be famous for being nothing more than a very bad dancer


For the millions who have come to know and love Harding for his video, Where the Hell is Matt? Dancing Badly Around the World will be a special treat.

Now, on to the video, which will be a repeat for those who saw it on this site in March, but it’s one of those things that is still enjoyable when viewed again:

From Wiki:

The RRS Discovery was the last wooden three-masted

ship to be built in Britain. Designed for Antarctic research,

she was launched in 1901. Her first mission was the British

National Antarctic Expedition, carrying Robert Falcon Scott 

and Ernest Shackleton on their first, successful journey to

the Antarctic, known as the Discovery Expedition. She is now

the centerpiece of visitor attraction in her home, Dundee.
