With a little help from their friends (see what I did there?) at Cirque Du Soleil, The Beatles have released a mystical, magical music video for their 1968 hit “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and it’s absolutely breathtaking.

Using George Martin’s stripped down 2006 remix of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” as the backbone, the video follows dancer Eira Glover as she interacts with various illustrations that are meant to pay tribute to a myriad of famous Beatles songs.

The dreamlike video was created just in time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil’s Love, a show that mixes the circus-like choreography of Cirque du Soleil with re-imagined musical stylings of The Beatles.

Now, try to watch this without crying happy tears.
