Chile helps Chile

Last night, Chile put on a Telethon called "Chile Ayuda a Chile" (Chile helps Chile) to raise money for the victims of its terrible earthquake and managed to raise the impressive sum of U$60m during the evening. Check out this video of Chilean popstar Américo singing a big hit from 2009 (down this end of the world at least) "que levante la mano" and those with an eye for Latino celebrities will see plenty of well-known Chilenos in the background helping out the effort (easy ones are Cecilia Bolocco and Ivan Zamorano)

But the best shots come from the couple of times the camera cuts to the audience, where you'll see President Michelle Bachelet and President Elect Sebastian Piñera getting their boogie on.

IKN joins in the shout of ¡Fuerza Chile!
