We don't know how he did it, but a guy named Jimmy Vuong has re-posted the Pure Michigan Sing-along video that was removed from YouTube a couple of weeks ago.
The video now shows 3,125,000 plus hits, after logging about 2 million in the first two weeks before the take-down.

The song publishers claimed copyright infringement while the producers of the video said they had obtained the rights.
Negotiations supposedly were going on with the publishers of the song "Good Time" by Carly Rae Jepson and Owl City, but no information on that process has been available.
Here's what Mr. Vuong says about his feat:
"Not my video, Full rights goes to Rob Bliss and Jeff Barrett the creators of the video.
"In the video, people from 50 cities across Michigan sang altered lyrics to the tune of a song by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen called "Good Time."
"I found this video, I know it was removed due to copyrights. But I hope making it a third match party, that it could be kept on youtube.
"Being an Michigander it made me proud re-sharing this video. I hope youtube keep this video up.
"Thank you Rob Bliss and Jeff Barrett for taking your time and creating this wonderful video."
It's a little tricky to get the video, but using the name Jimmy Vuong and Pure Michigan, or the link posted above, usually brings it up.
The only Jimmy Vuong who seems to fit the bill for the Pure Michigan poster is a 21-year-old Saginaw Valley State University student.
He is a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and was born in 1989. His e-mail is JLvuong@svsu.edu.
If that's you, Jimmy, congratulations!
