The team behind Harry Styles’ video for glamour hit Treat People With Kindness has been re-imagined for this year’s Comic Relief charity fundraiser.
Harry Styles’ original
On New Year’s Day 2021, global superstar Harry Styles unveiled the video to his super-positive anthem, Treat People With Kindness, the third single from his multi-platinum, multi-Grammy and BRIT nominated album Fine Line.
Full of old-school Hollywood glamour, the beautifully shot footage featured Harry and the multi-award-winning Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge as you’ve never seen them before.
Now, the team behind that incredible choreography have joined forces with Comic Relief to rework the original video into a viewer-friendly routine for this year’s Red Nose Day Dance Challenge.
Bite sized video tutorials led by Harry’s dance team will be released every weekday on Morning Live, and subsequently published on BBC and Comic Relief social channels.
In case you haven’t seen the original, her it is…
Viewers are encouraged to watch, learn and dance along to each of the seven tutorials as they are released, until Tuesday 16 March when the challenge concludes.
After picking up the steps, viewers can upload their dance videos via bbc.co.uk/rednoseday for a chance for it to be shown during Comic Relief’s 2021 appeal night on BBC One on Friday 19 March.
While only videos uploaded via the site will be considered for broadcast, viewers are welcome to also share their efforts on social media using the hashtag #RNDdoesTPWK.
The challenge offers viewers the chance to get their morning off to a fun-filled start that the whole family can enjoy together, while supporting Red Nose Day from home this year.
Presenter Gethin Jones said: “We’re delighted that Morning Live will be the launchpad for such a fantastic Red Nose Day initiative.
“We can’t wait to dust off our dance shoes and take to the dancefloor for daily tutorials courtesy of our brilliant choreographers.
“It’s a really fun challenge that I hope our viewers enjoy and get stuck into with us, and you know if you can donate a little to Red Nose Day as well, you’ll be making a big difference at a time when people are really struggling.”
Kym Marsh said: “We’re always up for a bit of a laugh and love the Red Nose Day challenge – as always, it’s about enjoying yourself and having a bit of fun and hopefully raising a bit of money, so we’d encourage people of all ages and abilities to take part throughout the challenge.
“We’re really excited to master the routine and see the content our lovely viewers create for the big finale!”
Red Nose Day Does Treat People With Kindness will culminate in an exclusive compilation featuring the Great British public dancing alongside Harry and Phoebe in the original video which will be played out on Comic Relief’s 2021 appeal night on BBC One on Friday 19 March, introduced by Sir Lenny Henry, Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness, Alesha Dixon and David Tennant.
Donations made to Red Nose Day will help tackle issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse, and mental health problems, all of which have been exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, in the UK and around the world.
