Stop whatever you're doing right now, watch this video, and send it to your friends. Actually, you don't even have to watch the video—though it's amazing—you just need to pass it on. Here's why.

The video was put together by a guy named Walter C. May and his roommates—who just happen to be in a band called The Daylights. It was posted on YouTube yesterday and has since then been tweeted about by May's friends, random strangers, and even Katy Perry.

But May's girlfriend, for whom the video was made, hasn't seen it yet.

That's because May wanted the video to reach her organically—through tweets, links passed between friends, and blog posts. He wanted to show his girl that they "can feel close without having to be close every day," and that their relationship can remain strong even though they'll be thousands of miles apart over the next two years.


I saw the video after spotting a tweet by The Village Voice leading to an interview with May, you saw it here. How will May's girlfriend see it?

Update: She saw it!
