Not all heroes wear capes. For one man named Brian Kinnes, he wears the cloak of fandom. His tools? Video splicing and a love for music legends. Thanks to his bravery and determination, a 73-minute long video now exists of Frank Ocean's full set at FYF Fest this month. You know, the one that was Ocean's first live show in the United States in three long, arduous years and featured Brad Pitt talking on a cell phone.

Like so many of us, Kinnes has never had the chance to see Ocean sing his beautiful songs live in person. "I just wanted this video to exist so I made it myself," the hero told Pigeons and Planes. "I think this is about as close as I'll get unless Spike Jonze releases all the footage he's been taking." Yes, that was probably Spike Jonze recording the concert for some mysterious art film that will break our hearts when it's released.
We all know that with great power comes great responsibility and, for Kinnes, that responsibility included giving up all semblance of a social life to splice together the footage. "I've been working on it since Sunday night," he confessed. "I'd say I put near 20 hours into it including downloading and piecing it all together and editing it. It's basically all I've done since Sunday."
Let this be a lesson that while we were all busy partying or comatose in bed watching Netflix, a mere mortal was planted in front of the soft glow of his computer creating one of the greatest videos we've ever seen. Now, enough talk. Sit back, relax, and slide into 73 minutes of pure, Ocean bliss.
