Best Thing I've Seen All Week

So a few folks in the city of Cesena, Italy, decided they really, really wanted the Foo Fighters to come play there.  They called some friends.  They practiced a bit.  This is what they ended up with:

1000 musicians, 350 of them playing guitars.  The drummers looked like they'd drilled together for a decade, not a few hours.  I'm not ashamed to say that there were some tears in this duck's eyes while watching the vid.

No way the Foo's say no to this... not after featuring it on their Facebook page.

EDIT: Dave Grohl said yes!  In Italian, no less.

1 I can't even imagine how awesome that must have sounded live.  Although I did notice that a lot of the guitars weren't plugged in, which makes sense, what kind of setup would you need to plug those all into...

2 There's an awful lot of amps out there in that field, though...

On a completely different tack, the lighting designer in me has finally found something that one of the new LED PARs can do that a halogen one can't.

3 Oh. My. Goodness.

That's amazing, and definitely one of the coolest things I've seen in weeks.

4 Is there a Guinness Record for largest Rock Band?  If there is, they just killed it there.
