“My main priority is to get people to give a shit about saving the Earth”
Lil Dicky said at first his idea was to just make a song about animals and it would be funny to cast various artist to play different animal characters. He did not have the idea of making the environmentalist climate change type of song initially.
Then he decided the proceeds from the song would go in charities involved with environment. This lead the stars to do some research.
Their discovery from the research put them on the path of trying to save the planet.
Lil Dicky is also quoted saying that he was surprised to find we have only twelve years to reverse the damages already don to planet earth.
From doing just a funny song on animals he has moved to some thing as important as trying to save the planet earth.
A share of proceeds will go to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. Leonardo DiCaprio has tweeted and thanked Lil Dicky
Thank you to @lildickytweets and all the artists that came together to make this happen. Net profits from the song, video, and merchandise will go to many @dicapriofdn partners on the frontlines of implementing solutions to climate change. #WeLoveTheEarth
