“Fuck You” Anti-hate Collaboration* is a series of LGBT lipdub tributes to Lily Allen’s 2008 anti-hate single “Fuck You (Very Much).” Sung to cheerful, musical-type music, the song’s lyrics directly address racists and homophobes as generally small-minded and culturally unprincipled people.
The song was written by Lily Allen and Greg Kurstin and released in 2009 (not to be confused with Cee-lo’s 2010 viral hit single with the same title). The song reached the top 10 of national charts in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Norway and Switzerland. In the US it reached 68 in the US Billboard Hot 100. In many countries, it was not released as a single.
On May 4, 2009, Australian YouTube user “steviebeebishop”: put a video called BIG FAT GAY COLLAB! online, which consisted of members of the international LGBT community lip dubbing to the song.
theres a disgusting amount of hate on the internet (especially on youtube!) directed at minority groups (especially the LGBT community) so i was inspired to organize this collab video. i never set out to change the world. i did not make this for the gay haters to see. i wanted to make something light hearted and funny for the victims of gay hate, to teach them to brush off the hate and stand strong and confident as who they are. you’re not alone! stevie loves you :)
The idea spread to other countries, resulting in the following:
