Watch a special documentary exploring Gal Mizrachi's journey to joining Foo Fighters on stage at the Hungarian Festival.
Back in August, we reported on the moment the band ended their set with their Everlong anthem, and the frontman called up a crowd-surfing wheelchair user to the stage.
Now, a documentary following the music fan, Gal Mizrachi, on his journey to meet the Foos at the Hungarian festival has been created by Das Rund Filmproduction.
Watch the stunning documentary, entitled Wheels of Madness, above.
Pointing to the space in front of him at the time, Grohl clocked the passionate Mizrachi in the crowd, saying: "Look at all these strong people, you can put him up here!"
When Mizrachi finally made it to the stage, he was embraced by the rocker, who whispered in his ear.
Watch our footage of the special moment below:

It of course wasn't the first time Grohl invited members of the crowd up on stage during a Foo Fighters' show.
Back in June, a fan was left stunned after being called up to drum with the band during their Croatia gig.
Richard Greenbury, who spoke exclusively to Radio X about the "surreal experience," went to see the Learn To Fly rockers on their second night at Pula Arena, where he decided to try and seize the opportunity to take over drumming duties from Taylor Hawkins.
Heading down to the show, which took place on Wednesday (19 June), the 22-year-old from Manchester was armed with a sign which read: "Taylor if you need a break, I can drum?" in the hopes he would be seen.
Much to his disbelief, the Brit was spotted in the crowd and proceeded to accompany Grohl and the band on their Wheels track.
Watch the moment here:
Richard - who came to Croatia especially to see the band - told Radio X: "I’ve joked about taking a sign to the concert so many times but never actually did it."
My friend Jadz convinced me as it was a smaller venue than we had seen them before, so we made one and held it up. Luckily he [Dave Grohl] saw it and called me up. Was such a surreal experience!"
Asked what was going through his mind when he was about to drum with one of his favourite bands, he replied: "I was just thinking, 'oh my god this is actually happening.' I had thought and practiced that moment so much at home, I only really play along to music when I practice so I had imagined playing live with them so many times.
"I was just thinking the whole time, 'do not fuck this up, there’s too many people to mess it up!' Only when I got off stage did it really hit me what had happened, it was definitely an out of body experience. It was so bizarre."
