No way were Salem’s finest going to let themselves be outdone.

It all started when Hallmark mainstay and Days of Our Lives alum Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa) launched to lend a hand to families in need and enlisted some of her hottest Hallmark peers to help promote the contest. Here’s that video:

Getting wind of the effort, Lilley’s Salem buddies immediately wanted in, and to put it mildly, they went all-out with their swoon-worthy video. As the actress put it in her July 10 Instagram post, “Sexy soap stars clap back to help kids.”

In the alternately hot and hilarious clip — which proves once and for all that the guys are the type who’d give you the shirts off their backs — Eric Martsolf (Brady) says, “You know what, Hallmark hunks? We want to help kids, too.”

From there, Billy Flynn (Chad), Galen Gering (Rafe), Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel), Christopher Sean (ex-Paul) and more pull out all the stops to get viewers worked up. Um, about the contest, that is.

Lamon Archey (Eli) even pulls off a spectacular trick that puts the emphasis on the pec. (If that doesn’t make him the hit of every party… !)
