Watch Emily Blunt, Reese Witherspoon, and Other Celebs Play the Funniest Round of Phone Tree Ever

This just goes to show that celebrities are always willing to pitch in for a good cause and also don't know the names of any of their friends.

Last night, NBC hosted its annual Red Nose Day (opens in new tab)- a charity event organized by Comic Relief that's designed to raise money for children living in poverty. Lots of celebrities got involved for this good cause, and we hope that getting them together wasn't quite as confusing as the hilarious video below would make it seem.

It all starts with Seth Myers calling Chris Pine to tell him about "Red Nose Day." Chris then relays the message to Emily Blunt, calling it "Red Rose Day." She then calls her husband, John Krasinski, asking him to help get more celebs for this event that probably "has something to do with gardening." He calls Zac Efron, who then calls Neil Patrick Harris, who calls Puff Daddy asking if they want to go to a Green Day concert with Rosie O'Donell. By the time it gets to Reese Witherspoon, it's become "'The Day They Stopped Making Rosé' and it benefits animals with alcoholism."
