Grand Rapids American Pie Lipdub

In 2011 the city of Grand Rapids organized and filmed a massive lipdub (the music was a recording of a live concert by Donald Mclean, and the people in the video were pretending to sing the song) of American Pie 50 years after its release. The film was all shot in one long continuous take through downtown Grand Rapids with lots of people from the town taking part. It is an amazing film, and oddly touching. Ebert called it the greatest music video of all times.
