Thanks to the good people at Vulture for editing together this video.

Ratings for VH1's CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, which premiered on MondayOctober 21 at 9pm, were historic - VH1's highest-rated original movie ever, with a total of 4.5 million viewers.

The success of the film also led to spikes in sales of TLC tracks on iTunes R&B, as fans who were around during the group's career highs relieve the sounds of the time, and those who weren't, discover those same sounds.

Your trip down memory lane continues with this very cool edit put together by Vulture, which juxtaposes footage from the VH1 film with the same videotaped real-life moments for comparison.

See how well the film's production team did in recreating the originals in the video below.

And if you missed last night's premiere, and didn't DVR it, VH1 will rebroadcast the movie on SundayOctober 27, 8pm ET/PT, which will be immediately followed by encores of Behind the Music: TLC Remastered at 10:30pm, and Rock Docs: Last Days of Left Eye at 11:30pm.

It'll also air again on WednesdayOctober 30 at 9pm ET/PT; and on TuesdayNovember 5 at 4pm ET/PT.

    This movie was more a re-enactment of footage we've already seen and less about bringing to light anything we didn't already know. Still, love that TLC is getting some attention lately.

    It was sooo eerie how well these actresses portrayed them and looked like them! Wow!
    And hands down....Lil Mama did an outstanding job as Left Eye! I almost forgot who I was looking at while watching!
