One Thousand Italians Perform "Learn To Fly" By The Foo Fighters

Music is a pretty wonderful thing. It's amazing how it can bring people from all walks of life together, and perhaps there's no better of example of that than in this video. One thousand people spent about a year practicing the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly" to convince Dave Grohl and his band to come play in Cesena, Italy. If you don't get goosebumps watching this...well, I just don't know what to tell you.

For his part, Grohl loved the video, and even created a video response in Italian, saying (roughly): "Hi, Cesena! I am David, hello. I’m sorry, I don’t speak Italian. Only a little, a little. That video — but how beautiful! Very beautiful. Thank you very much [literally: a thousand thanks]. We are arriving [coming], I promise. We’ll see each other soon. Thank you very much. I love you. Bye."

Just amazing. Side note: I re-watched the original "Learn to Fly" music video this morning, and it is simply incredible, even though Grohl's long locks and facial hair are quite absent.
