You may know Jared Leto as an actor, but he is also an accomplished musician. As the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars, he has created great music, and now his band is giving back to a variety of environmental causes.
If you’re a huge fan or just want to see how a music video is made, Leto and his band are giving you just that kind of opportunity for their music video “A Beautiful Lie.” All you have to do is pay $4.99 to see how they put it together, and your payment goes directly to an important environmental cause.
Leto’s video, more of a short film, was actually shot 60 miles north of the Arctic Circle to educate others about global warming. Throughout the entire video, different facts pop up on the screen detailing the important eco-issue that has caused so much damage to our planet.
“We all know by now that our planet is in deep trouble. We have abused it horribly and we are paying the price. It’s time to try to do what we can, both as individuals and collectively, to find better and kinder ways to live. It’s not our right; it’s our responsibility. We are all guilty. We can all change,” Leto says on the website.
If you decide to donate, you can see behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with the band and production crew and of course the video itself.
