Mary Poppins Quits: Kristen Bell Parodies the Disney Hero, Takes on Minimum Wage

Mary Poppins Kristen Bell

Just a spoonful of sugar won’t raise the minimum wage in America, so Mary Poppins has packed her carpet bag and is so flying out of here.

The newest satirical sendup from the ever popular website Funny or Die features Kristen Bell embodying the oh-so-practical Disney nanny expounding on why the federal minimum wage needs to be raised by three dollars.  According to Mary, “In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun.  You get your paycheck and, SNAP, federal and state income tax, medicare, and social security…why, you’re living below the poverty line!”  Mary also claims the current system is “supercalifragilisticexpialibullshit.”

The sketch is “practically perfect in every way,” as Mary Poppins often described herself.  Julie Andrews would be proud, as would every musical theater queen who watches it!

PHOTOS: New Jersey Woman Can’t Live Without Her Cardboard Cutout of Bradley Cooper

New Jersey mother Danielle Davies is so crazy about her former schoolmate Bradley Cooper that she lugs a cardboard cutout with her wherever she goes. Or at least that’s how it seems in her Instagram account, which shows her hanging out with Cardboard Cooper at the beach, in the kitchen, and even buying a bag of litter at the pet store. In fact, just today she posted to photos of her and Cooper at the Philadelphia Museum of Art—running up the steps and posing with the Rocky statue.

Crazy-pants? Or just plain hilarious? Check out some of her photos below.

WATCH: Johnny Showcase Releases Video for “Hit It From the Back”

johnny showcase hit it from the back

Philly “eight-piece absurdist soul outfit” Johnny Showcase just released the video for its hilarious new tune “Hit It From the Back.” Directed by Adrienne Mackey and channeling one of the sexier Bee Gees’ tunes (without too much of the cheesy falsetto), the video looks like it was shot all around South Philly. Check it out below.

WATCH: The Roots Ride Dr. Doom’s Fearfall

Yesterday, when posting a video of Philly comedian Kevin Hart riding a roller coaster with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, writer Victor Fiorillo made a suggestion: “Let’s get Questlove and Fallon to ride the vomit-inducing Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom at Great Adventure.”

This morning he gets his wish. Well sort of. Questlove and The Roots took their turn on the Universal Studios version of Zumanjaro: Dr. Doom’s Fearfall. And it was captured on tape and shown last night on The Tonight Show. Check out the clip above.

WATCH: Philly’s BalletX Does One of Those “Happy” Videos

Philly dance company BalletX has put together a hyper-local video to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” that features members of the dance company, and even a few random locals — like a guy in a food truck with particularly good rhythm, and a couple adorable kids break-dancing down at Love Park. The best moment starts at about 1:20, when three of the company dancers do a synchronized dance on the steps of the Bellevue.

Check out the video above. Sure, they’re a little late to the game here, but is it really ever too late to hear this song?

WATCH: Car Stops in the Gayborhood, Gets Twerked All Over

Came across this funny video on Instagram this morning and had to share. Apparently the Gayborhood was popping last night, as is evidenced by this impromptu street party at what looks to be near 13th and Saint James Street. A car gets stopped in the middle of the street, and before you know it passersby just start twerking all over it. The best part is that the passengers put the thing in park to get out to join them. “Only in Philly,” the camera man says. But I’d like to add that being in gay central probably helps, too.

WARNING: NSFW (there’s a bit of profanity up in there.)
