I think this is brilliant for at least two reasons.
Firstly, it's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson from the greatest band in the world playing at a Foo Fighters concert. I mean, how cool is that? Brilliant.
Secondly, there's how the video was created. It has become almost standard for people to use their cameraphones to record live events and almost always what they do with the recordings is post them to YouTube. So lots of people are at a Foo Fighters concert, Geddy and Alex turn up, lots of people video it and many then post it to YouTube. So far so good. What vidiot4u2 did is what I think is brilliant. He edited and remixed the various cameraphone videos to create a multi-angle view of the performance. He has created something greater than the sum of the parts.
It's the blind men and the elephant... except someone has taken all the partial views and shown us the pachyderm! Useful in education? I think so... Oh wait a minute, YouTube is banned in schools! Bah!
