The Harlem Shake. Thank you, Internet.

Dear The Internet,

Thank you so much for letting weirdos do stuff and give them a platform to display it all.

I mean, what the hell is this?

Its to a track by Bauuer and it's called 'Harlem Shake' and it's about to go INCREDIBLY MASSIVE ALL AROUND THE WORLD.  The idea is that one person starts dancing for 15 seconds and then everyone else joins in and is absolutely magic.

I don't know if you had the same thought after watching this but...

I WANT TO DO ONE!

You Did It!

The challenge was set, and WOW did you step up!

We needed to hit £196,078 by 4pm for Greg to jump naked into the Zambezi and for Chris off of Scott's show to travel the posh BBC lifts in just his pants.

The total at 4pm, thanks to your wonderful donations... was a whopping £218,461. Incredible.

Thank you so much for everyone who's shown their support for Comic Relief, and congratulations to Greg who completed the Hell and High Water Challenge of rafting down the Zambezi! He'll be back on the blog to tell you all about the final day as soon as he finds the internet...

For now, here's the evidence.

Hey it's Chris off of Scott's show (again).

So Greg will get naked and jump in the Zambezi if we reach £196,078 for Comic Relief by 4pm.

In support of the big man, I've agreed to travel up and down the posh BBC lifts in just my pants if we reach the total. Hopefully I won't bump into any BBC legends on the way. Here I am at the top, it's a long way down.

Naked Greg!

Greg James | 08:49 UK time, Friday, 1 February 2013

Let's get Greg Naked!

It's Headmistress Laura here and I need your help!

If we raise an extra £50,000 for Comic Relief by 4pm today, February 1st, Greg has agreed to jump naked into the Zambezi. That's right, naked. Into a river full of crocs and hippos.

Here's a little taste of what may be to come...

Hippos, hippos everywhere...

Good evening lovely people. 

Wow.  What a day.  Exhausting - so so tired, we are all so almost over this week of hell and high water.  One last big push tomorrow and we'll be very happy campers.

Today was a long old slog - unending winding river with really dodgy bits full of hippos which, at times, were incredibly threatening.

I have learned so much this week - a real life changer. I've always seen this place like we all have on Comic Relief films, but being here I can report back (and you can trust me) that the money you raise is absolutely working.  It's putting kids through school so THEY can shape a decent future for themselves.  The cause works - I've seen it for myself.  So if you've donated this week - thank you.

Bedtime.  Shattered.  ONE more day.  We're ready.
