Comedian Ricky Gervais, Mayor of London Boris Johnson, actor Jude Law. Who ISN'T in this video?

Four years in the making, this World Cup song featuring character Buster, "The English Footbull Terrier", was created by Harrow Weald-based Tony Carr and his friends to win the hearts, minds and ears of the nation ahead of the Three Lions hopping on the plane for Rio, destined for Brazil 2014.

But this is far more important than celebrities and football. The group that have made this video have done it as a strategy to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.

"All of us involved have lost someone to cancer or know people battling it," Tony, 43, said.

"Brothers, mothers, friends, that is what gave us the inspiration to do make this song, and with all the support we have had from celebrities and people watching it, it has just grown and grown."

The group have, over the last four years, taken turns to dress up as Buster, and together all chipped in to purchase a limousine to drive the character around and perform what they have dubbed the Buster Dance with a celebrity that they managed to catch in a car park or in the street, and get them to sign the limousine.

In the coming months, the flash vehicle – covered in celebrity signatures and soon to be have oil paintings of Bobby Moore, Winston Churchill and Saint George – will go up for auction with all proceeds going towards Cancer Research UK.

"When we begun making the video, we were hoping to just raise as much as possible," Tony added.

"But as this whole thing has been getting momentum, we are having the limo assessed as people reckon it could go for six figures, which would just me amazing."

Will England win the World Cup this summer?

The enviable roster of celebrities, with everyone from boy band heartthrobs McFly to TV presenter Keith Lemon, were head hunted by friends of friends who may know them, or hearing that they were performing and waiting around for them in a car park.

Tony said: "What was great was when they not only stopped to chat, do the dance for the video, and sign the limousine, but also really took an interest in what we were doing, and why. Ricky Gervais and Alesha Dixon were two of them which we really appreciated."

And it was not just those in the video who have pitched in.

John Motson, the legendary Match of the Day commentary, chipped in with lending his voice to providing commentary while Tonic Choir, of Grimsdyke School, Hatch End, also chipped in with vocals during the chorus.

The song, We'll Do It Again, explains why they believe England are destined to repeat their one and only victory that they achieved in 1966 when they won the World Cup at Wembley stadium.

Tony said: "We want people to take notice, to enjoy it and obviously we want to raise as much money for such a good cause."

The song was released on iTunes on Monday. For more information, visit
