The video was made on December 7, 2009 at 1:30pm Greenwich Meridian Time. All the different musicians in 156 locations started to sing the song at that time, with the same tempo. They did a good job: When the results were assembled in a single track, everything matched.

The event was organized by Starbucks to help raise awareness of AIDS in Africa for the (RED) foundation. Like the Stand By Me video, the result will touch even the more-coldester-hearted bastards among you. And if it doesn't, you need a punch in the bracket.
