I have something very special for you today. If you have been wondering where the hell Matt Harding has been since his Where the Hell is Matt 2008 video, well he's back! Back with a new colourful dance rendition from around the world.
Matt Harding has trekked half the globe and danced with different peoples from around the world. If ever you feel that your faith in humanity is somewhat dwindling, give one of his videos a watch. If you're not a robot, you might just be reduced to tears. It really is moving stuff.
So without any further ado, here is Where the Hell is Matt 2012. Try watch in full-screen if you can - the quality really is top-notch. Enjoy!
THIS wedding dance video never gets old. It's only been viewed 73.5 million times to date. I had my music player on shuffle the other day when it picked out this little dance number which I hadn't heard in years. It immediately reminded me of this video.
Granted this is a rip-off of the final episode of the American Office when Jim and Pam get married, but this one actually happened for real-zies. There have been so many copy-cat weddings since this viral video but it is still such a cool idea for a wedding. Boom!

What a fantastic way to remember one of the happiest days of your life! Has anyone ever attended a nontraditional wedding before?
POOR Rebecca Black got torn to shreds over her ‘corny’ Friday music video. It may have helped viewers learn the days of the week and the difference between left and right, but it wasn’t exactly a masterpiece.
What has emerged from the ashes is a proudly South African parody of Friday called Braaiday ! Every year thousands of animals are ritualistically slaughtered to celebrate what has become an annual event in SA – National Braaiday. Here’s the splurb from YouTube:
In preparation for South Africa's National Braaiday, held 24 September every year, comedy duo 'Derick Watts and the Sunday Blues' recorded and shot a music video to parody the viral sensation that was Rebecca Black's “Friday.” Grab your tongs!
Here's the original if you haven't heard it

NEW FAT PIE: David Firth's latest (hopefully not last) video
I’ve been re-watching Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe lately and have been reminded how depressing and dodgy television and even the news can be in our backwards 'Information Age'. But cynicism and despair about the world aside, Charlie Brooker has some great guests and inserts on his show. The fourth series features the animated delights of Fat Pie – a great little cartoon series by David Firth – the same guy who brought us the weird and wonderful Salad Fingers. It can be described as warped humour, but Fat Pie often does well to make a valid comment on society.
I had a peruse on YouTube to see what new Fat Pie cartoons David Firth had done lately and was pleased to discover that, after three years, Firth is back with a new Fat Pie gem! It’s called “Take This Pill” and I suppose it’s a jab at the health industry to put it blandly. It’s also the last Fat Pie animation that David Firth will be publishing for a while, according to him. Here’s the splurb off YouTube:
"Take these pills. They will turn you into the person you are supposed to be. They have no flavour. This is a sequel to HEALTH REMINDER. Just by watching this video, you will be healed of any problems you have in your life. If you don't have any problems, then now is a good time to start looking for them. You got a problem buddy? Wanna make something of it? This is the last cartoon from me for a while. I am running away. Watch the original if you haven't seen it already."

And here's the prequel - Health Reminder
"This is a health reminder. May I remind you to pay attention? This will save your life and eliminate your worries. It most CERTAINLY will destroy any bothers you have. You have no choice but to realise this. You have no choice but to understand."
VIDEO: Nelson Mandela Day flash mob rocks the mall
AT 11.30am on a Saturday morning at the Greenacres Shopping Centre in Port Elizabeth, seemingly regular shoppers and personnel broke into song. The international award-winning Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University choir rocked the house with an impromptu rendition of the South African national anthem and some popular songs.
The Nelson Mandela Day flash mob was part of an awareness campaign to get students to apply to study at NMMU - one of South Africa's leading tertiary education institutions. It was also aimed to coincide with Nelson Mandela Day, whereby South African citizens are encouraged to give up 67 minutes of their time to do some good in the world in recognition of the 67 years that Madiba dedicated towards making our country great.
It would have been so great to have been at Greenacres on that eventful day. Was anyone there?
