Harding was known for a particular dance (his only dance move), and while videotaping each other, his girlfriend suggested he add the dance. The videos were uploaded to his website for friends and family to enjoy. The video was passed around by e-mail and eventually became “viral”, with his server getting 20,000 or more hits a day. Harding created a second version of the video with additional dancing scenes from subsequent travels.
