Can Marcus get all his best friends back in the same room? This video says no.

So the divisive #RedOut campaign from earlier this week is long over; but some of the UK’s biggest YouTubers are still making more plans to raise awareness – and hopefully donations – with Comic Relief. And in the case of Marcus Butler, that means only one thing: getting the ol’ YouTube Boyband back together.

In a new video, Marcus travels across the UK in search of his close friends former bandmates – Alfie Deyes, Caspar Lee, Joe Sugg and Jim Chapman – in the hopes of roping them back in for one last hurrah. Hilariously though, nobody’s really feeling it; some even asking poor old Marcus to get in touch with their management.

Watch the video below.

Poor Marcus. Never mind, at least it’s all for a good cause – which you can find out more about by visiting the Red Nose Day page.

And for the sake of nostalgia…
