Don’t Pretend This Video of Jeff Mangum Performing at Occupy Wall Street Didn’t Make You Cry

As it’s been well-documented by now, Jeff Mangum made a surprise appearance last night, treating the unwavering crowd of Occupy Wall Street protesters to a solo eight-song acoustic set, including an event-appropriate cover of Minutemen’s “Themselves.” You can go ahead and add your own Radiohead joke right here. In case you somehow didn’t watch at 1am and start crying in your bedroom at the point the crowd begins to sing along to “Holland, 1945” like, um, some people I know, you can do so now. Or watch again, because, you know, the power of music and all that.
