Mary Poppins Is Quitting! Watch Kristen Bell Sing About the Minimum Wage (Video)
24 Jul 2014
"Frozen" star Kristen Bell picked up Julie Andrews' magic umbrella from "Mary Poppins" to advocate for a raise in the minimum wage in a video for Funny or Die.
Bell, playing Mary Poppins, says she is quitting her job because she is only paid the federal minimum wage. Singing rewritten lyrics to "A Spoonful of Sugar," Bell tells Jane and Michael Banks, "A three dollar increase can make a living wage... I don't get these birds for free."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
