Actress advocates for raising the federal minimum wage in Funny or Die clip.

A spoonful of sugar has nothing on raising the federal minimum wage.

That's the message of a new Funny or Die political parody starring Frozen and Veronica Mars fave Kristen Bell as one fed-up Mary Poppins. "Every job you start to do/Can quickly go askew/The pay's too low/I can't live on this doughhhhh," Bell-as-Poppins sings to her very confused young charges, Jane and Michael. It turns out "Do You Want to Build A Snowman" was just the beginning of Bell's public foray into music.

This isn't the only issue the star has recently been outspoken about. Bell, as well as her husband Dax Shepard, have campaigned for stronger papparazzi laws against children, a cause with which they seem to be making some progress. 

Watch Bell channel Poppins below, and don't be surprised if after viewing you start inadvertently humming, "Just a three-dollar increase, can make a living wage/Can make a living wage/Can make a living wa-ge." That's the idea, after all.
