Not bad, dude, but you're no Matt

Here's a video by this guy named Ely Kim, who apparently is a Yale MFA student. I'm a sucker for this kind of random-geek-dancing thing, and this one is done very well. On Ely's Vimeo site, he explains that this is the product of "100 days, 100 songs, 100 locations, 100 dances." So if you've got a minute or so, take a look. (And definitely check the stuff below, too.)

But I feel that Ely is a bit remiss in not even mentioning his forbears. Like, for example, the number 2 most viewed video in YouTube history, Judson Laipply's "The Evolution of Dance":

Perhaps you also remember what I think is maybe the best online video ever. Keep the sound on, and prepare to feel good about things. Unless, of course, a chimpanzee just gouged out your eye and bit off your mouth, nose, fingers and genitals, in which case, uh, nice job finding our site. You can use a mouse? I guess you got that going for you. (Which is nice.)

From Where the Hell Is Matt?:

I got up to 023 and then just stopped it so I could watch the Where's Matt video for the 138th time.

That got boring after 05. The Matt one is still great.
