Yesterday, the Internet received a lovely gift in the form of 1,000 musicians all playing the same Foo Fighters song at once. The video has been viewed almost 6 million times as of this writing and has been spread to the four winds of the world wide web.

The stunt was coordinated by Fabio Zaffagnini in an attempt to get the band's attention and persuade them to play in his small northwestern Italian town of Cesena.

Gracious and classy guy that he is, Dave Grohl responded July 31, with a (vertical) video. He gave a message in Italian to the musicians and fans that put together the impressive piece of music and declared an intention for the Foo Fighters to indeed play there.

Here's our transcription of the video with the help of basic linguistic skills and Google translation:

"Hello Cesena, [Unclear, we're not that good] I don't speak Italian. Just a little, a little. This video was beautiful. Very beautiful. Thank you very much.

Yes, we are coming. Promise. I'd love to go there soon. Thank you very much. I love you. Good bye."



The Rockin' 1000, as they're called, has yet to put up a video response on their YouTube account, but they freaked out accordingly on their Facebook page.



Just goes to show you, if you want to get your favorite band's attention, gather 1,000 of your closest musician friends and make a viral sensation.

It's as easy as that.
