A hilarious and very well-edited supercut has been made from countless movies into a mashup music video for Lionel Richie's 'Hello.' The video, by Matthijs Vlot of the Netherlands, is only about a minute long, but is far more successful than the average attempt at anything like this. It's definitely an enjoyable watch.

An instrumental version of the song accompanies quite familiar sounds and images and is paced perfectly. Included in the video is John Cusack, Ken and Barbie from Toy Story 3, Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley, Woody Allen, an Avatar, Sean Connery, Borat, Eddie Murphy and Leslie Neilson, to name a few. Matthijs Vlot compiled footage for the clip is from such films as Back to the Future, Annie Hall, Ghandi, Rush Hour, The Matrix, Planet of the Apes and more.
