The Beatles "Free as a Bird"

This is one of the coolest videos I've seen in a while. They combine footage shot at an aerial view point (bird's eye view), with stills and archival footage of the Beatles. The look is totally 1960s with the costumes and scenery/sets, as well as the tone of the film. Beautiful.

There are references to 64 Beatles songs in the video. I totally caught Eleanor Rigby, Sgt. Pepper, Strawberry Fields Forever, Birthday, A Day in the Life, Paperback Writer, Abbey Road album cover, Tomorrow Never Knows, Blackbird (?) and a couple of others, but I'd need to watch it about 20 times to pick up much more. I was a Beatles mega-fan in high school and still love them to this day. Check out this amazing video. I tried to find something non-YouTube, but no such luck.
