Slash and Ozzy Osbourne team up for anti-bullying documentary and song.
Slash, Ozzy Osbourne and a number of other Hollywood stars have teamed up for the anti-bullying documentary #NoJoke. The film tells the story of Andrew Cole, who attempts to put together a group of his musical idols to help him record a song for victims of bullying. The documentary follows Andrew Cole, who was bullied as a kid, as he tracks down the ghosts of his past to get to the real issue behind the epidemic. He also goes around North America and the U.K. attempting to find celebrities and experts to join his cause and musicians to perform on his anti-bullying song “Joke.” Cole ends up tapping a list of A-list artists for the film including Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the late Lemmy Kilmister, Steve Vai and Meat Loaf as well as actor and jazz pianist Jeff Goldblum, Patrick Stewart, Jane Lynch and more. The film is produced by Jason Loftus who explains “We think it’s an ideal time for this conversation, and we thank the experts who participated in this project. We hope it will spark both personal reflection about how we treat each other, and discussion about how we best approach this issue together.”
