Among the cast members partaking in the shoot were Darren Criss, Matthew Morrison, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, Jayma Mays and Dianna Agron, who posted a message upon day's end, reading, "I don’t know all that is to come, but I know what a day like this means. Four years of love, light & support. To the cast, crew & creators. And to all of you that have shown your love along the way. We just can’t thank you enough. This has always been a very surreal experience. X”
