Just been introduced to the Earth song, now my kids love it shoot me!

For those of you who haven’t had the joy - https://youtu.be/DfGoUqhqn4Y

But am I being unreasonable / insane, this is aimed at kids but it’s foul!! Had to find the clean version and even then!

If it’s aimed at kids why all the swearing? Why are they mentioning HPV and don’t even get me started on forgiving Germany!! Mentioning women’s orgasms and cum??

Now maybe I’m wrong and it’s aimed at adults, but then what adults would listen to this and think, oh yeah let’s all be eco and green.

Just, what?

I clicked on this thread thinking you’d be talking about the Michael Jackson song...

I thought Jackson too, and I wodered how I'd not noticed those lyrics. grin

I'm not clicking to hear the dodgy version though.

Erm... what makes you think it’s aimed at kids?

Michael Jackson took a close personal interest in children.

My kids think this song is hilarious too op

I just clicked on this out of curiosity
I have no idea who it's aimed at, but it is truly horrendous.

I look forward to the end of humanity so that this kind of song doesn't exist.

the references were the only mildly amusing thing about it. Is it the awful music and singing that made you think it's aimed at children? I can see why. But kids have lovely music now, like Hey Duggee songs! so ...no.

there's just no excuse for this song at all.

It’s not supposed to be for kids. It’s by a rapper, with cameos by a bunch of famous people, raising money for eco organizations. Here’s the information:

that tune...is it supposed to be for people who've taken a really dodgy batch of something?! grin

Thanks Right but I don’t want to meet the adult that appeals to!

I heard this a while ago;.
Started off thinking it would be a great song for a primary school assembly.

Then I changed my mind smile

My first thought was of when Jarvis Cocker hijacked MJ's performance of Earth Song at the Brit Awards. Haven't heard of this version.
