If you watch one celebrity-filled, anally obsessed charity video before Earth Day, make it this one

Lil Dicky, the white comedy rapper with questionable taste but a great rolodex, has come up with a millennial’s Earth Day respond to the 80s celebrity-studded, charity knocked
We are the World“.

Dicky isn’t tackling African famine, instead he’s come up with an oddly anally-fixated paean to the Earth’s climate and the disaster the world faces if there isn’t some collective action taken to reverse our current course of carbon emissions.

To hammer this message home, and lift cash for Leonardo DiCaprio’s climate change-focused foundation, the tricky Dicky with a fraught history has enlisted some very very mighty celebrity friends for an animated musical extravaganza.

DiCaprio appears in the video, as does Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Halsey, Ed Sheeran, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Wiz Kalifa, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and the Backstreet Boys.

“Like a lot of people, I had a vague concept that something evil was happening here on Earth, but I didn’t really realize how mad our climate crisis is and how screwed humanity is about to be,” the artist told Vice’s sound publication, Noisey, in an interview. “It’s full-on mad! If we don’t get our act together now, and change a lot about our fundamental behavior, Earth will become unlivable alarmingly soon. Why did it take me so long to get loop of this? I feel like everybody on the planet should be talking about this 24/7. But that’s not the case. So I wanted to make the most enjoyable and saga piece of content feasible, to get everyone aware and talking. Because it’s now or never… Let’s save the Earth! We love the Earth!!!!”

The seven minute video has a host of cameos, a live action sequence, a farting skunk, Justin Bieber as a baboon singing about his anus, horny rhinos, and Snoop Dogg as talking weed. And it’s racked up over 7 million views and counting on YouTube.

Saving the planet never seemed so questionable.
