We don’t know exactly why a group of Hollywood mega stars picked a virtual read-through of 1982 slacker-com Fast Times at Ridgemont High to raise money for charity, but we’re sure as heck glad they did. Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey all pitched up for the fundraiser for Sean Penn’s charity, Core.
The hands-down highlight? Watching Brad and Jen recreating the famously awkward Phoebe Cates/Judge Reinhold masturbation scene, as the rest of the virtual cast stifle chuckles in the background. It may be the best thing Jimmy Kimmel has ever seen.

The live-streamed event was hosted by comedian Dane Cook and had Morgan Freeman lending gravitas and wry eyebrow arches as narrator. Watch the whole thing here. It’s a virtual dopamine hit and you won’t regret a minute of it.
