Nikolaj Coster-Waldau combined satirical lyrics with droll piano playing, to raise money and awareness for one of the UK’s most beloved anti-poverty children’s charities, “Red Nose Day.”
The Danish actor who portrays “Jaime Lannister: The Kingslayer” in HBO’s Game of Thrones, supported last years event by performing one of Coldplay’s “Game of Thrones: The Musical” songs, with his own humorous lyrics. The viral video has since garnered more than 1.6 million views on YouTube.
Each year “Red Nose Day” partners with numerous A list celebrities who perform, “original sketch comedy, hilarious film parodies, one-off sitcom reunions and amazing musical performances,” to spread global awareness about the countless number of children suffering from a lack of economic opportunities, and raises money to help address their needs. In 2015 over $23 million in donations was raised for the cause, and more than $1 billion has been raised since the charity’s inception 30-years ago.
