Kristen Bell Sings Revamp of Mary Poppins Tune With Minimum Wage Message

Posted on Jul 26, 2014
Screen shot via Funny or Die

The hit “Funny or Die” video casts Kristen Bell as a fed-up Mary Poppins, quitting her “choice” nanny position in protest of earning a minimum wage that has her living below the poverty line. But the timeless Disney character has a good idea about what will make her stay.

“Just a $3 increase can make a living wage,” Bell sings to the tune of the classic “A Spoonful of Sugar.” Maybe, just maybe, the song will get stuck in enough Congress members’ heads that something can be done about the appallingly low “dough” minimum-wage workers are paid. That would be magic worthy of Mary Poppins, wouldn’t it?
