Weekend Watch: Lil Dicky's 'Earth' music video

The rapper and 30-plus other celebrities sing an absurd—sometimes crude, but undeniably catchy—song about protecting our planet.

Rapper Lil Dicky loves the Earth so much that he gathered more than 30 other singers, musicians, and celebrities to sing a song about it and appear as animated characters in a 7-minute music video. Justin Bieber appears as the baboon, Ariana Grande as the zebra, Zac Brown as the cow, Katy Perry as a pony, Snoop Dogg as a marijuana plant, and Leonardo DiCaprio as himself, plus more big names make appearances.

The song's chorus goes like this: "we love the Earth, it is our planet / we love the Earth, it is our home.”

The rapper says that the song and video were made to raise awareness about threats to the environment, but it's peppered more with juvenile jokes than climate change facts. Still, it's been viewed more than 44 million times and the musician says a portion of the profits will go to various charities.

We apologize in advance if the tune gets stuck in your head.
