HANDS: Pulse Survivors And YouTube Stars Join For Song Benefiting Orlando Massacre Victims [VIDEO]

Via Billboard Magazine:

On Tuesday, GLAAD, in cooperation with Interscope Records, released a lyric video for the single “Hands,” which benefits the victims and families affected by the Orlando mass shooting. “Hands” — which was released July 5 — tells the story of the power held in one’s hands: “They can break the world/ They can change it too.”

The single recites lyrics that portrays the good and bad that is done in someone’s hands, including building and breaking barriers: “If a millions hands can build a wall/ A million hands can break it down.”

The video features Patience Carter, Tiara Parker and Angel Anthony Santiago, all survivors of the shooting that occurred at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12. Other notable faces include a handful of YouTube sensations, including Kingsley, Rebecca Black, Gigi Gorgeous and Scott Hoying of Pentatonix and Superfruit.

Vocalists on the track include Pink, RuPaul, Mary J. Blige, Adam Lambert, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani. Buy it on iTunes. The audio version of the song already has 1.7 million plays on YouTube.

      I hope it wasn’t produced with money from that Miracle Whip super pac of yours. Sheesh.

            WAY OFF TOPIC: I watched Vacation last night (alone, El Squeeze was snoring too loud). At the end of the film during the credits there is a quick shot of Chris Hemsworth posing with the end of his dick hanging out the bottom of his sport shorts. No. I’m quite certain it was not fake. The scene where he enters the Griswald’s guest bedroom and whips around a giant erection outlined in his shorts? Sure. But not this particular two or three second pose at the very end of the film? Please check it out for yourselves. 😛

            I have the film file. I’ll see if I can find it. I saw it too, last night.

          • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I’m assuming nudity is okay here? Oh, what the hell. Straight from the MKV file, no enhancements or adjustments, just cropping.

          • Octavio

            Yup. That’s the still shot that flashes for two or three seconds on screen. There is a lot of discussion about they had to find the right prosthetic penis that “worked just right” for Hemsworth. In the big scene where it’s the center of attention the obviously used a prosthetic, although just the outline is shown in his underwear. But his photo? I’m suspecting we’re getting a look of the real Hemsworth and they hope that everyone assumes it’s fake. Still . . . since when do mainstream US films ever the real goods?

          • That_Looks_Delicious

            That has to be fake just because of the position. Nobody has their penis growing out of their hip bone.

    You know how they say “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”?

    Well…I’m not saying anything at all.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Then why did you even type something? Seriously, I am sure you did so much to help. I’m appalled by your arrogance.

    • TuuxKabin

      Good. Keep it that way.

  • djcoastermark

    One month and one more set of tears flowing again. I have a feeling the tears will flow for a long time to come because of Pulse.

  • Octavio

    Very cool.
