‘#OxfamSong’, A Charity Music Video by Eclectic Method Featuring Thousands of Video Samples

There’s another charity single out this week, along with Band Aid 30’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” and it comes from Oxfam International. “#OxfamSong” is a music video created by AV remixers Eclectic Method that puts the spotlight on poverty in the UK.

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, Oxfam International 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.
