Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber are CGI animals in this generation’s “We Are the World”
“Earth,” a song and short film by comedy rapper Lil Dicky, is all about climate change and butts.
It’s about time climate change became the subject of a blockbuster anthem — we just didn’t expect a guy called “Lil Dicky” to bring it to us. Yet the comedy-rapper, who has built up a YouTube following of more than 4 million subscribers with a collection of absurdist viral videos and so-stupid-they’re-brilliant lyrics, has somehow assembled a bevy of big-name stars, from Ariana Grande to Justin Bieber, for an Earth Day-themed charity single accompanied by a seven-minute animated short film.
Titled “Earth,” the project functions as a “We Are the World” for the internet age; released on April 19, “Earth” racked up 3.5 million views in a matter of hours. That makes sense — and when you watch it, you’ll see why.
