It's been over 25 years since the original "We Are The World" was recorded, and while earlier this year it was remade by today's hottest stars to benefit Haiti, Comedy Deathray decided the classic 80s charity ballad needed an additional remake. This time? Comedians only.
'We Are The World 25.75' was recorded to benefit the L.A. Regional Food Bank and is introduced by Kurt Russell as a "terrible version of an already not-great song." The performers include Sarah Silverman, Doug Benson, Kevin Nealon, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, Neil Hamburger, Chris Hardwick, Garfunkel & Oates and many other comedians with varying singing abilities. Hey, they may not be professional musicians, but they've got plenty of passion and Bruce Springsteen impressions to go around. We especially liked the way Russell summed up the comedians' commitment to the charity: "laughter is the best medicine, but food is the best food."
