I Love the World, also known as I Love the Whole World, is an advertising campaign launched by Discovery Channel in 2008 in promotion of their new tagline: "The World is Just... Awesome".[1] The song used in the ad is a re-writing of a traditional camping song known as "I Love the Mountains" [2] or "I Love the Flowers", likely adapted from the tune of "Heart and Soul", featuring a chorus of "boom-de-yah-da, boom-de-yah-da".[3] In May of 2020, Discovery Channel released an updated version of the piece, called “The World Is Still Awesome” on their YouTube Channel.[4]

Cast and visuals with lyrics

The cast and visuals of the ads are numerous, as it features many hosts and famous scenes/locations from various Discovery Channel shows.[5] There are also several alternate versions of the commercials where some visuals were replaced; the new visuals in those versions are indicated. There are currently two ads in the campaign, the first released in 2008 called "I Love the World", and the second released in November 2009 called "The World is Just Awesome".
