YouTube user Matt Perren is a dedicated teenager: Nearly every day for three years, he recorded himself lip-syncing to Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now," and he has now put together this impressive video chronicling his performances. The sharply-edited project flips quickly between Jan. 1, 2011 when Perren was 15.2 years old, and concludes on Dec. 29, 2013, when he was 18.1 years old, and then reverses course, going backward through time.
And the whole thing syncs up awfully well with the Queen track, considering. Enjoy while marveling at the kid's editing chops and his good taste in music.
