The music video was premiered on April 19th, directed by Nigel Tierney and Federico Heller.
Lil Dicky said of the song in an interview on The Ellen Show, "I mean honestly when I started making this song I didn’t know the details or the facts at hand. But like we have 12 years to change the way we do so many things on earth, or the damage is irreversible. And within our lifetime, well within our lifetime, crazy things are gonna happen. Floods, food shortages, bad air, millions of people relocated… It’s like… very soon."
He announced that proceeds from this song and video will be going towards the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which fights to help protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction.
“If we don’t get our act together now, and change a lot about our fundamental behavior, Earth will become unlivable alarmingly soon,” he explained in a press release. “So I wanted to make the most entertaining and epic piece of content possible, to get everyone aware and talking. Because it’s now or never… Let’s save the Earth!”
