WATCH: Kylie, Pharrell, Lorde, One Direction & Literally Everyone Ever Cover 'God Only Knows'

Can you spot all 29 artists 
the BBC teamed up with?

The BBC took the meaning of the word “supergroup” to epic new heights with a TV spot that began airing on Tuesday (October 7) in which a variety of artists gather together to sing the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” The promo is related to an upcoming block of BBC Music programming.

The cover will also be released as a single to raise funds for the BBC’s Children In Need charity. The BBC pulled a similar move in 1997, releasing a version of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” featuring the voices of Elton John, Bono and Reed himself, among others, but I think that “God Only Knows” has that 17-year-old cover beat. I mean, not to get all Stefon from “SNL,” but this video has everyone.

Pharrell Williams? He’s in it. Kylie? She’s there, too. One Direction? You better believe it. In case you don't recognize all 29 acts in the video — and who would — here's a list of all of them, in order of their appearance:
