I may be one of the last people in the world to find out about this video. It wouldn't be the first time that I was late coming to the barbecue. LOL It isn't exactly your typical music video and it starts out a little wierd, but as you get a wee bit further into it, you can't help but want to sing the anthem that is playing (even if you don't speak the language) and dance right along with Matt. I'd have to say it's one of the coolest videos I've seen in a long, long time.
The thing is.... It's all real. Matt Harding did make each of the video clips, in each of the countries that show up on the screen, BUT his story and the video went up in flames almost overnight, after it had already reached over 17 million hits on youtube. You see, when the video achieved viral status on youtube, Matt got this (now very regrettable) idea to play a little joke the world by coming out publicly and saying that it was all an elaborate hoax. Well... it worked. It worked so well that even the news media was proclaiming it as a hoax and nobody got the joke. Everyone believed that the video was a fake and that Matt was the most evil person in the world.
To hear the very true story behind this very real video in Matt's own words, click HERE. In the meantime, enjoy three minutes and forty-three seconds of grinning from ear to ear. You can even get up and dance a little. I won't tell anyone.
