Fabio Zaffagnini had a big idea just over a year ago.
Since rock band the Foo Fighters hadn't played his region of Italy since 1997, Zaffagnini wanted to put together something huge to attract the fellas' attention and hopefully lure them back.
So, how about gathering 1,000 singers, guitarists, bass players and drummers in a field to play the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly"?
Well, after a year of preparation (quite a lot went into this undertaking) it finally happened — and on Thursday the "Rockin' 1000" project released the video proof.
It's unclear if the band will agree to play Cesena now, but Zaffagnini & Co. at least reached their first goal and attracted the Foo Fighters' attention:
And whatever you assume might be the result of so many people attempting to play a song in unison, you just might come away from this clip more impressed and inspired than you first thought.
(Content warning: After the song, there's a speech that includes a smidgen of profanity):
