Today, the 85 richest people on the planet have as much wealth as the 3.5 billion poorest – that’s half the world’s population. We think that’s wrong. To help turn up the volume on poverty, we recorded festival goers and celebrities, including Simon Pegg, Eliza Doolittle and Foals, making a song and dance about poverty. The support was incredible with 18,000 people taking part across the UK. Full credits of participants is listed on the link above.

Using thousands of song and dance segments, Eclectic Method (aka Jonny Wilson) created this totally unique and epic video which will be shared far and wide to highlight the growing gap between rich and poor. So make sure you download the track and share this with your friends!
