This Kid Did the Same Dance in 100 Different Locations to Check It Off His Bucket List
By John Boone
Matt Bray of Naperville, Ill. wasn’t going to wait until he was dying to start living. Instead, he made a bucket list of 200 things he wanted to do in his lifetime, then started a YouTube channel, called ProjectOneLife, to post the videos whenever he managed to check one off.
(Examples: No. 1: Get a meal named after you at a restaurant. No. 58: Create an awesome rap song. No. 191: Get trapped in a room with a zombie. Read his entire list here.)
Last year, Matt’s “100 Days of Dance” video, in which he did the same dance for 100 days, went viral:
And now he’s done it again. But this time, it’s “100 Places of Dance.”
Matt says it took him months to make the video. (“To find a song, make the choreography, practice the dance routine three times a day to make sure I had it down to muscle memory.”)
In the end, the song he landed on was Parov Stelar and Graham Candy’s “The Sun (LCAW Remix).” And the choreography? Epic. No matter where he did it.
From a public bathroom...
To the top of a skyscraper.
“The bucket list item for this video was originally intended to be [#22] Learn How to Dance,” he explains. “I did learn some pretty cool moves but I still feel I have not reached the level of dancing that would consider me good at dancing, so I am going to leave this one unchecked for now.”
For what it’s worth, you’re a better dancer than us, Matt.
