The Story of a Nickname
Maybe the strongest quality Matt Geiler possesses is the range of instances he can put himself through.
When he is not in a ‘professional’ circumstance, he can also make fun of himself. He is not afraid of entertaining people this way, as you can conclude from the fact he is the man behind the ‘dancing pumpkin‘ meme character.
If you do not know about it, it is because the whole story happened 11 years ago on a Halloween, when Matt submitted a hilarious short clip where he was showing off his moves, while having his head completely covered by a real Halloween pumpkin.
How did he come up with this? While working as an anchor to a nightly newscast, Matt and his team needed something to fill up the show on a 31st of October. So, it just dawned on him they could film something like a silly dance featuring a unitard and a jack-o’-lantern mask.
The dance still holds its own, with more than 6 million YouTube views, consecrating Matt as a nationally-acclaimed dancing funnyman.
To the delight of his fans, he re-enacted the legendary meme in great fashion. So where else could he have chosen to do that, but the America’s Got Talent stage? Yep, it happened in July this year, and it looked like this:
As you can see, he was recognized by the judging panel. That is because back in 2006, the hilarious pumpkin dance went viral.
