More You KNowAh, those The More You Know public service announcements on NBC, featuring television stars speaking earnestly to the camera. They are so annoyingly straight-laced and slightly intrusive, with their entreaties to avoid drugs, eat dinner as a family, and bond with your children that we’re sometimes tempted to do the evil opposite, just to spite them.

Apparently, even NBC can take a joke. The network recently produced a series of online advertisements spoofing their own public service announcements. The faux-earnest ads educate viewers about everything from “short people” to “jellybeans.” With NBC appearing so good-natured, we can almost forgive them for canceling the brilliant Freaks and Geeks. No, we can’t. We’ll never forgive them for that. But check out the ads anyhow; they’re a hoot.
