John Mayer: Malaria No More!

Check out this hilarious new campaign from Malaria No More that is kicking off today called “Comedy Fights Malaria.” This PSA here features John Mayer, Survivor host Jeff Probst, and The Office‘s Ellie Kemper, BJ Novak, and Ed Helms.

While the video is funny and entertaining, Comedy Fights Malaria shows that the disease is no laughing matter – every 45 seconds, a child in Africa dies from malaria, but humor can keep malaria in the spotlight and in the conversation.
