Over the weekend, Matt Harding from the Where the Hell is Matt series of Youtube viral videos came to Shanghai, putting a call out to anyone who’d dance with him in front of the Science and Technology Museum in Pudong. We were there to catch the action.
About 200 or so people came. Most were expats, but there were a few surprises in the crowd as well – including one man who was 100 years old! According to Shanghai Daily, “He learned about the event in a newspaper and came along with his daughter and grandson. Though he planned just to watch, the sprightly centenarian ended up joining in.”
Matt was a super congenial guy, standing around for a good hour-and-a-half after he’d finished filming to take pictures and/or dance with anyone who asked… just about everyone asked. No word on when the finished product will be aired – Matt said that, unlike other times, this time his video was self-financed and he’s currently looking for a sponsor.
