Philadelphia funnyman Kevin Hart got serious in a challenge to support people impacted by flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey and he hopes some celebrity friends join him.

In a video (warning: the video contains profanity) posted to Instagram, the stand-up comic and actor dedicated $25,000 to the American Red Cross’ Harvey relief effort.

“Serious moment right now… this (is) unbelievable,” Hart says.

Hart, who grew up in Philly and attended George Washington High School, challenges fellow comic actors Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld as well as TV/radio host Steve Harvey, musical couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé, actor/singer Justin Timberlake and actor/wrestler The Rock to pony up funds as well.

“I’m challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead,” Hart says.

Hart calls the situation on Texas’ Gulf Coast and in Houston, where feet of rain have fallen and caused dangerous flooding, “a serious matter” where people need help.
