Karen O to American Children: Go Out and Play!

Where the Wild Things Are sagatrailers

The US Department of Health and Human Services hopes so. A new advertisement released by the agency has adopted Karen O's joyful tune from the movie's soundtrack, "All is Love," with a simple message: Hey kids! Go out and play! Also, don't get fat!

The ad ends with a shout for kids to visit SmallStep.gov, a website that gives kids ideas of how to play, as well as healthy lifestyle quizzes (we got a 5 out of 5!) and games. Plus, if you leave the site idle long enough, an window will open saying: "If you can, go do something active like jumping rope or bike riding. You can always come back later."

If Karen O says it's playtime, you know she means business. Watch the commercial here.
