A video of various celebrities coming together to sing John Lennon's 'Imagine' has been circulating on social media.

Gal Gadot came up with the idea for the cover while self-isolating, and was joined by the likes of Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo and Chris O'Dowd.

But the video has been ridiculed by some who say it does nothing to help, and argue that the celebrities should have made financial contributions to the COVID-19 crisis instead.

Is it morale-boosting, or just excruciating?

Roe McDermott and Donal O'Donoghue joined us for The Week Trending to discuss this and some of the other stories making the news this week.
