*Yawn* Hey, how's it going? Enjoying your Saturday? That's great. Anyway, since I always like to toss vacuous but entertaining tidbits your way on these lazy weekends, I thought you might enjoy this old PSA for gun safety featuring Jason Priestly and a rapping eagle named Eddie. I've seen segments of this pop up on television before, but this is the first time I've seen it in its entirety. The first scenario shows several kids rooting around "grandma's attic." Now, I don't know who this "grandma" is but she apparently has grandchildren of every race and nationality. That's got to be some kind of record. Also, a rap song about not shooting guns is almost quaint, considering so many actual rap songs are about how much fun it is to shoot guns, and people. Anyway, the point is not to just walk away from the gun, but to first do a few choreographed dance moves and then shimmy out the door with your hands in the air like you just don't care. Enjoy the clip after the jump.
Turns out, it was all a fake! Kaling, as well as Rainn Wilson (Dwight), John Krasinski (Jim), Jenna Fischer (Pam) and B.J. Novak (Ryan) recorded a whole mess of fake PSA's for the April Fool's holiday. Some of the subjects they cover in the spots are Beer (walk away from a $9 brew) Lipstick (use two shades for maximum cuteness) and Cake (don't smush it in the bride's face because it just messes up her makeup).
There are sixteen PSA's in total and they are done with the seriousness on the normal ones that appear during the network's shows. They can all be seen at the show's website.
