20th Anniversary of Photograph

38 years ago Def Leppard released the song Photograph but more importantly 20 years ago Joseph Ammendolea created a music video for the song in his high school TV/Film class.  

He didn't have a script or even a basic outline written down.  He just went off an idea in his head and hoped his friends would trust him.  His friends had no clue what the hell he was doing and spent most of the time goofing off.   It's a miracle a coherent story could be gleamed from.  

The video would garner him an A+.  He was the first and only student in the class to figure out how to "perfectly" time dubbed music to the rest of the video.  

Here's the video and its blooper reel dating back to 2001.
