For: All periods
Set-up: All of you watched the original 2005 version of the “Where the Hell is Matt?” video (via a YouTube link), a ‘travel’ documentary, that was used as the prompt for your most recent vocabulary quiz.
Note: Mr. Long mistakenly told you that the in-class version was the 2nd version. Oops.
Below you’ll see a link for the 2008 version which is really worth watching, too. Even cooler places the 2nd time.
But as Mr. Long said in class, the real goal of sharing this video was to explore why so many people around the world have positively responded to the quirky nature of Matt’s goofy little dance (either by joining him for a dance or simply by watching/passing the video around on-line).
- Explain why YOU think Matt’s dance (and his ensuing travel adventure) causes people to respond so positively.
- Optional: Go watch the 2nd (2008) video (via YouTube) he did for the British chewing gum company who paid him to once again travel the world doing his quirky little dance.
- Optional: Go to Matt’s website and see what else you can discover.
- Optional: Watch Matt’s lecture at a Vermont college about a) why he did this, b) how he designed the trip, c) how he got people to dance with him, etc. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. (all via YouTube)
