Thousands of People Say Happy Birthday in Two Minutes

This rather blows my mind. I'm not sure how Hank and his computer genius friend pulled it off, but after soliciting the help from thousands of his writer brother's fans for this birthday surprise, Hank was able to create a composite video of himself and more than a thousand other people, all saying the exact same words at the same speed while making the same (slightly exaggerated) gestures with their hands. (Well, I have *some* idea of how they did it, but I have no idea how it didn't take literally a million hours of work, which, because they're busy folk, I'm assuming it didn't). It's a little dizzying to watch, but amazing nonetheless. (Also, you have my permission to switch it off when Hank starts singing. I love his music, but some songs are better than others.)
