Funny or Die 'Reading Rainbow' spoof: Reading leads to superpowers
For years, Reading Rainbow taught kids that reading could make them go twice as high as any butterfly. But according to Funny or Die’s spoof of the Reading Rainbow theme song, we now know reading can do much more: turn you into a god, give you superpowers — as the song says, you can “literally do anything” if you read a book. They do say knowledge is power…
Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter campaign last week to raise money to expand the Reading Rainbow tablet app to the Web and mobile and to fund special Reading Rainbow packages for schools. As of Wednesday, almost $3.5 million has been donated — that’s more than three times the amount Burton originally was asking for and there are still 28 days left to donate. As Burton can probably attest to, money is also power.
