Social media has been responsible for charitable phenomenons such as the Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised a reported $115 million for ALS research, the #NoMakeUpSelfie movement which raised $8 million in one week for Cancer Research and Kony 2012, the campaign to have the brutal Ugandan war lord taken down, which raised $20 million in one year – although Kony is still at large.
The success of these campaigns all have one thing in common: celebrity support. Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and Tom Cruise, are only a few of the A-list names who have taken part in various viral fundraising efforts. So, when Hurricane Harvey and Irma caused chaos across the Atlantic, celebrities ensured that they assisted with the relief efforts. However, just when the world thought it couldn’t get any worse, Hurricane Maria began to form. Worryingly, the tropical cyclone has Puerto Rico in its sights, a country already torn apart by other extreme storms this year. This stricken situation prompted celebrities to take action once more, to ensure that relief efforts reach every corner of the globe… The #PuberMe campaign was created by comedian Nick Kroll and The Late Show host, Stephen Colbert. The campaign encourages celebrities to post a photograph of themselves from their awkward phase, and in return Colbert and Kroll will donate money to help people in Puerto Rico rebuild their lives after Hurricane Maria. The two funnymen, who are taking things very seriously in aid of Puerto Rico, went first: Quickly, their amusing campaign gained the attention of other celebrities who all joined in to share embarrassing photographs from their past…
1. Conan O’Brien
The comedian and talk-show host has always “only been interested in trying to make people laugh,” something he has certainly achieved by sharing this adorable, but cringeworthy, middle school snap.
2. Sarah Silverman
Silverman has people rolling on the floor in fits of giggles with her stand-up comedy routines, but, she gave people another reason to laugh recently when she posted this embarrassing picture.
3. America Ferrera
If you thought America Ferrera couldn’t get any goofier than her Ugly Betty character, then you were wrong as this throwback picture proves.
4. Amy Schumer
Nobody was remotely interested in Schumer’s awkward phase, everyone was too busy ogling her half-brother Jason, and the vintage posters of attractive men on the walls.
5. James Corden
Corden made his name by playing the chubby, but hilariously funny, Smithy in the hit show Gavin and Stacey. It’s safe to assume that Corden, who co-created the show, took inspiration for the role from his own life.
6. Michael Bloomberg
As the tenth richest man in the world, you would think businessman and politician, Michael Bloomberg wouldn’t have time to engage in online trends! So, we thank his assistant for this gem!
7. Lena Dunham
The Girls star certainly looked radiant in her #PuberMe photograph – which is more than can be said for the kitten she is holding on to.
8. Andrew Rannells
Rannells is hardly recognizable with his plump cheeks and basic polo shirt. The Tony-nominated performer, famous for the broadway sensation, The Book of Mormon, has come a long way since the sixth grade!
9. Josh Gad
Sadly, Josh Gad’s embarrassing middle school phase was Frozen in time in this picture. But, he seems to have Let It Go for a good cause!
10. Ben Platt
Platt looks a long way off Pitch Perfect in this snap. Who would believe that this little boy would go on to win a highly coveted Tony award?
11. Judd Apatow
Judd Apatow’s childhood photo is Superbad, but he didn’t seem to mind when he shared it with his 2.2 million followers on Twitter.
12. Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel poses in his extremely short shorts with his little brother in this comical snap. But, if you look a little closer at the car’s numberplate, you’ll realize that he has played us all.
13. Gina Rodriguez
Rodriguez, who is of Puerto Rican descent, couldn’t resist taking part in the viral celebrity trend to help the country her parents hailed from.
14. Topher Grace
Topher Grace was In Good Company when he shared his cringeworthy middle school picture!
15. Donald J. Drumf
Not one to be left out, Donald Trump also joined in the fun – well, sort of. A parody account seized the opportunity to showcase the pubescent president.
It’s not just celebrities that had rough patches, as Netflix expertly showcases with this screenshot of the site from its earlier days! Now that you have a taste for celebrities before fame, why not indulge in these mortifying pictures of some of the world’s most famous names:
