By now, you've probably heard the song "Cups" on the radio more times than you can count. The catchy tune revamped by actress Anna Kendrick in the a capella-heavy film "Pitch Perfect" has become fodder for tons of covers, but nothing quite like the one choreographed by Broadway dancer Christopher Rice.

The "Book of Mormon" dancer and a slew of other performers tapped the entire tune in perfectly syncopated rhythm, and the video has already racked up close to 350,000 on YouTube since it was posted Monday.

Check it out above and let us know what you think of the performance in the comments.
