An enterprising English teenager took two pics every day for three years to set up a lip-sync time-lapse to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” If this lede is simple, it’s because the concept is too, and yet the finished product is marvelous.

Here’s 1,101 days worth of selfies, but in a good way.

Matt Perren explained how this came together in a YouTube comment: “I made a very simple lip sync animation for the song, and adjusted the frame rate to determine how long I’d have to take pictures for. Then everyday I’ve taken two pictures [one for the start and one for the end of the video] and they gradually make their way towards the middle of the video.”

He explains it further over on his Facebook page, where you can also see the genesis of the project in a conversation with a friend:
