Celebrities Hold Hands Up For Nelson Mandela Day


OK, fine. A Nelson Mandela Day in New York on July 18th can't really be a bad thing, right? After all, the dude did a lot in his lifetime to help a lot of people. Why not celebrate him? But why do we need a video with celebrities holding their hands up for two minutes as some almost Simon and Garfunkel-sounding dude whines about how wonderful the world would be if people just helped make peace on earth with their own two hands.

Oh wait, this is all a good thing, right? Sorry, let's start over.

Gotham has created a star-studded video to build support for the first-ever Nelson Mandela Day in New York to honor the man and his lifetime of achievements. In the two minute video, celebrity after celebrity hold their (helping) hands up as a singer goes all Simon and Garfunkel on us. The video ends with a shot of the man himself, holding up his hands which have done so much greatness for so many people in this world.
