Quick: what do Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, Cory Doctorow, Lawrence Lessig, Bruce Schneier, Jason Kottke, Phil Plait, MC Frontalot, and many more have in common? Answer: they’ve all teamed up to make a new “We Love xkcd” video, where they sing their love of the Internet, cryptography, your sister, and more, in homage to the classic xkcd strip “xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel.”

xkcd fans may recall that back in October, fellow fans NoamR and Olga Nunes animated the strip.  For the more recent “We Love xkcd,” Nunes, who was the wonderful voice behind “I Love xkcd,”  teamed up with Elaine Doyle. How they got the bushels of cameos they did is a mystery, but some of them really sparkle. Allan Amato‘s gun-wielding love of your suffering and Wil Wheaton‘s guileless “the future’s pretty cool” are our current faves, but there’s plenty to go around.

Nunes has a full breakdown of who’s singing which line, along with a number of other projects, on her website.
