Watch 4 iPhones Perform 'We Are Young' [VIDEO]

Todd Wasserman

It took 238 takes to make this video, which features video on four synchronized iPhones. We think it was worth the effort.

The iPhones are coordinated to a guitar version of Fun's "We Are Young" by YouTube user MysteryGuitarMan. Among the cool images: The moon passing by, the Earth and the sun and MGM himself starting and ending the tune.

All of the images are very impressive. But as the comments note, it's possible that the effects were achieved by less labor-intensive means. (MGM could not be reached at press time for comment.)

Either way, the video -- which is on its way to 800,000 views -- is likely making the members of OK Go smack their foreheads for not coming up with the idea.
