Tonight NBC will air a live TV special to raise awareness and develop programs for children and youth across the United States. Hosted by Craig Ferguson, the 2-hour event will bring together our favorite stars in a variety of musical performances and comedy sketches. Last year, Red Nose Day was a huge success, raising more than $23 million dollars for kids all across the country. The proceeds have also been put to use in 15 other countries.
To promote the fundraiser, several celebrities came together to make a hilarious video that pokes fun at the video itself. “We’re doing that thing where…a bunch of celebrities are edited together…so that one celebrity says one sentence or less…of a heartfelt plea…or says nothing…and just looks serious,” says Ellen, Tracy Morgan, Kristen Bell, Emma Watson, Liam Neeson, Zac Efron, and others. Kristen Bell also tweeted her excitement yesterday by posting, “I’m getting plenty of rest before the big day tomorrow!! #RedNoseDay Watch on NBC LIVE tomorrow 9/8c!”
While the video is ridiculous, it does a great job of pulling people into the cause. Personally, I don’t think I’ll be able to hear “our souls” the same way again.
