AceShowbiz - Social media users were sent into frenzy when Lil Dicky previewed a music video for his new song, "Earth", that featured big names in the entertainment industry such as Justin Bieber and Leonardo DiCaprio among others. After much anticipation, both the song and visuals were released on Friday midnight, April 19, just three days before Earth Day.
The animated visuals sees around thirty stars taking on the roles of animals and plants, while Dicky plays himself. Justin stars as a baboon, while Ariana Grande voices a zebra. "Hi, I'm a baboon/ I'm like a man, just less advanced and my anus is huge," the Canadian singer rhymes, before the Nickelodeon alum sings her verse, "Hi, I'm a zebra/ No one knows what I do, but I look pretty cool."
Other stars who appear in the video include Halsey as lion cub, Snoop Dogg as a marijuana plant, Miley Cyrus as an elephant and Ed Sheeran as a koala. Adding humor to the music video, Kevin Hart voices Kanye West.
Towards the end of the video, Dicky suggests that Leo should be their representative when it comes to raising awareness for global warming. The animated version of themselves even recreate the popular scene from the actor's hit movie "Titanic". When asked by Dicky how he thinks about this song, the Oscar-winning actor says, "I think this might be my favorite song ever. It's awesome."
Proceeds from the song and the music video will be going towards Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which fights to help protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction.
Describing the meaning of the song during his appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", Dicky explained, "I mean honestly when I started making this song I didn't know the details of the facts at hand. But like we have 12 years to change the way we do so many things on earth, or the damage is irreversible. And within our lifetime, crazy things are gonna happen. Floods, food shortages, bad air, millions of people relocated... It's like... very soon."
