As someone who’s had his fair share of Zoom video meetings this year, The Longest Johns put together something cool to close out 2020 with the sea shanty, “Leave Her Johnny.”

The U.K. folk group put a call out to fans to help out with this mass choir community project and expected about 100 to show up – nearly 500 people ended up participating. The end result is an awesome recording of the old sea shanty, but what’s really cool is seeing all kinds of folks singing along, joyfully doing their part.

In the description of the video, the band writes “Hopefully this video gives you a bit of optimism for the future at the end of such a dreary year.”
