HuffPost Originals announced today the launch of “Celebs Have Issues”, an original video series aimed at solving the world’s problems one comedy sketch at a time.

Each star-studded episode spoofs a commercial, promo, or PSA and puts serious causes such as equal pay, transgender rights, and mental health in the spotlight, using wit and laughter as a means to fight the good fight.

Each week, celebrities including Kristen Bell, Drew & Jonathan Scott, Mayim Bialik, Ty Burrell and Reid Scott will star in a custom sketch highlighting a cause of their choosing. Each individual episode will align with a charity in order to promote awareness – from I Am That Girl and Straight But Not Narrow to the National Alliance on Mental Illness and Kids In The Spotlight. The Huffington Post will work with these celebrities to create a real difference while making audiences laugh along the way.

In the premiere episode, debuted this week, Kristen Bell stars as a hilarious advocate for the very unfunny issue of women’s inequality in the workplace. The episode begs the question, “Why outsource all your production to far away countries like India, China and Narnia when we have the cheapest and best workforce right here in the good ole’ US of A: Women.” Looking for employees who smell nice, bring in baked goods and don’t complain about their working conditions? Pinksourcing is the answer for you.
