Comedian-meets-rapper Lil Dicky, real name David Andrew Burd, made relative waves last year with the weirdly off-kilter and somewhat controversial video for his Chris Brown featuring track “Freaky Friday.” Yet this year it seems Burd has altered his long-term persona to encompass some meaningful activism, bringing forth an immensely scaled, 32-feature project to commemorate Earth Day, titled “Earth.”

The hilarious RYOT-directed and produced visual starts off with a live-action clip of Dicky interacting with kids, the video quickly turns into an animated tale whereby the world’s largest stars become cartoon animals who begin singing about environmental disasters. As would be expected for a Lil Dicky track and video, the features offer up some hysterical lines as they channel their spirit animals – Snoop Dogg is a marijuana plant, Kevin Hart is Kanye West, Ariana Grande is a zebra, and more.

Other features include Leonardo DiCaprioBrendon Urie, Ed Sheeran, HalseyJustin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Hailee Steinfeld, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Joel Embiid, Meghan Trainor, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys, Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, and Zac Brown.

Burd recently revealed that the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is helping him choose an environmental organization for the video’s proceeds to go towards. You find out more about the collaborative environmental campaign here.

In case you missed it, Cam’ron just dropped a music video for “Choppers.”
