Where The Hell Is Matt?

Matt is a 31-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut…

I want to thank CK’s Blog for pointing me to this video. If you’re not familiar with her blog, I recommend you go check it out. Meanwhile, back at Wordout, we’ll be watching this really neat video by Matthew Harding and Stride gum. (I have no affiliation with either, have never chewed Stride gum and only heard of Matt this morning.)

Caution: This video may make you cry unexplainably. Maybe it’s the children dancing.

  1. I’m so glad it moved you, too–I have cried watching this more times than I want to admit… and then I have to watch it again!

    The score is exquisite too–and when that wave rushes over him and the children just have so much fun getting silly it makes me believe that the world is not so different… and how much good some simple acts can do.

    Glad to know of your blog now.

  2. Thanks for stopping by. I’ve been a regular reader of your work for a few months now. Great stuff, I recommend it.

  3. I understand that someone who doesn’t celebrate birthdays has one tomorrow. You know who you are. And Happy Birthday to you. The alternative isn’t nearly as fun.

  4. Yep. It’s 49 years tomorrow morning at 6:03.

    Gee, seems like it was at least 50…
