WATCH: Tom Daley, Team GB get down for the children

Nov. 20 (UPI) -- In November of each year, the BBC's charitable arm, Children in Need, hosts an appeal night special on television. British celebrities take part in appeal videos and popular shows produce specials to raise awareness for UK children.

For this year's appeal, which aired Friday, Olympians from Team GB pitched in their remarkable talents--although not exactly of the sporting kind.

Olympians and paralympians danced in public to the song "Do Your Thing" by Basement Jaxx, all while generous passersby drop coins in a Children in Need bucket.

Highlights from the video include the Men's Four rowing team (Alex Gregory, Pete Reed, Tom James and Andrew Triggs Hodge) doing their very best "Single Ladies" dance and the equestrian team (including Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Zara Phillips) doing--naturally--the "Gangnam Style" pony ride.

But the best moments, undoubtedly, come from diving star Tom Daley, who flips, lipsyncs, and does his, um, signature move, the "Daley ghetto slut drop." Oh, and rips off his track suit.

And, because they're great, gifs!
