Quarantining with your family might be a nightmare task for many of us (honestly, how many puzzles can you possibly do?) but some families have found a way to make it fun instead of a bore by uploading entertaining videos singing their favorite classic rock songs.

We recently became obsessed with this young man who jumped on his roof to give us a performance of Queen's Freddie Mercury's iconic Live Aid performance and now there's another incredible video making waves. 

The Heller family took to their driveway and front lawn of their Washington house to epically recreate Journey's “Separate Ways” music video frame for frame. 

“It was all my wife’s idea," Steven Heller told USA TODAY. "She was trying to find a way to stave off the boredom so she decided, 'Why not make a music video?'”

Thankfully, all their kids were totally into making a video. Sons Jackson, 14, and Asher, 12, and daughters Lily, 15, and Violet, 9, all took part in the creation and Lily shot the whole thing on a phone!

The family didn't just make the video in one take either, they all carefully planned their performance for a truly amazing shot-by-shot remake of the #1 song. 

“It all went smoothly, even though, at the end of the day some of the younger kids got a little tired," Steven said.

Check it out above and the original video below and maybe get inspired to host your own famband music video!
