Yes, that is an actual screenshot from the video! Posdnous, Trugoy & Maseo didn’t bring a band, but they brought the hits. Here I present the full 53 minute video in 5 parts. Shot with a Canon Vixia HF21 using a Sony ECM-MS908C stereo external mic and a 6 foot tall tripod. I recommend watching in HD.
