Lorde, Diplo, Gotye, Skrillex and even Rick Astley are among the dozens of artists who filmed a cameo for a hilarious clip for Australian radio station Triple J. DJs Matt Okine and Alex Dyson enlisted the help of 40 musical acts to create the ultimate track for the show’s Hottest 100.

With that many top-charters and award-winners, one would think that writing a theme song would be a breeze. It wasn’t. In fact, Matt and Alex found out how difficult it was to deal with each and every one of them.

In the almost six-minute clip, the DJs gathered the musicians at the Triple J headquarters, telling them that they need their help.

“We’ve gathered you all here today because you’re the most talented musicians and songwriters on the planet, or you’re Bluejuice,” Alex said, referring to the Sydney-based band, who were clearly upset by the special mention. “And together, we’re gonna write a theme song for Triple J’s Hot 100.”

“I’m out,” Lorde told them, quickly leaving the room. The others also expressed disinterest in the project, while some put in vague ideas.

The brainstorming session turned into the artists exchanging taunts and jabs at one another. The puns have been handed out generously as well, making the funny video even more chuckle-worthy.

“We could have a feat,” Peking Duk suggested, confusing Matt and Alex. “Oh! Featuring!” Matt explained. “Feat is short for featuring.”

That created further confusion among the artists, with each one talking at the same time. “Any ideas? Come on, guys. Don’t give up on me,” Matt pleaded to the group when no one seemed to be inclined to add anything useful.

“Guys, I’m never gonna… give… you…up,” Astley said as Matt and Alex tried to cut him off before he could finish the line from his catchy song. After angering the DJs, the ‘80s hitmaker quit, prompting the others to follow his lead.

Gotye was the only one left and willing to continue, but the DJs turned him down. Later on, Vance Joy appeared via Web session when everyone has already left the studio.

Triple J’s Hottest 100 is now open for voting, and will end on January 18.
