Fan spends 5 years recording a stop-motion video of himself to a Coldplay song

Sam Reid (inspired by Noah Kalina, the man who's been taking a photo of himself every day since 2000) progresses from gawky teen to clear-skinned, bearded adult while he lip-syncs the Coldplay tune, one selfie at a time. 

He notes in the description for the video that it took him "five years to sing this song," and offers his beginning and end dates: February 23, 2011 and April 19, 2016, but he doesn't precisely explain why he wanted to do this. Maybe it was just another art project (like Kalina's). Or maybe it's the greatest fan dedication video ever.

Clever skills when it comes to lip-syncing the lyrics! Check out 'My Life in Techni-colour'
