'Kony 2012' goes viral

The filmmakers behind "Kony 2012" are looking for a few famous friends to help out with their cause. The viral video produced by Invisible Children, which sheds light on the atrocities of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, asks "celebrities, athletes and billionaires" to take up the cause. Their strategy seems to be working. Already some of the stars named in the film, including Oprah and Justin Bieber have tweeted about Kony's victims, the children forced to fight as soldiers or work as sex slaves.
