Top (and best) Viral Video
"Where the Hell is Matt?"
Matt Harding is a 32-year-old videogame designer who quit his job in 2003 to travel around Asia. Along the way, he recorded and posted a short video of himself doing an elbow-intensive jig in Hanoi. That clip got passed from one person to the next and eventually got the attention of Stride Gum, which decided to sponsor two more of his trips. In his latest video, Harding visits 42 countries over 14 months and invites the locals to join in the fun.
PLEASE WATCH. I watched. I cried. Peace is beautiful. May this be a message throughout 2009.

Happy new year.
