  • In praise of the stupid dance

    In case you haven’t heard of Matt Harding let me tell you about him.
    A former video game designer, at age 23 he quit his job to travel around Southeast Asia until his money ran out.
    While he was in Hanoi taking photos, his travel buddy said, “Hey why don’t you stand over there and do your stupid dance and I’ll record it?”
    Harding did his stupid signature dance and thought the video was funny, so he started doing it and recording it everywhere he went on his trip and posted it on his blog for his friends to see.
