    NEW YORK (AP) A new public service announcement irreverently suggests one way to solve the malaria problem in

    Africa: Recruit a cadre of sexy mosquitoes called La Femme Mosquita to seduce and kill their disease-carrying counterparts.

    It's one example of the humor the nonprofit group Malaria No More hopes will spread awareness in eliminating the deadly disease.

    B.J. Novak, star of the NBC sitcom "The Office," likes the "laugh with us and not at us" approach. He and other celebrities including Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, John Mayer, and Orlando Bloom are lending their support to the group through a series of TV spots

    and viral videos.

    Novak said that public service announcements historically have gotten little respect, despite the importance of their causes, making them ripe for ridicule. The ubiquitous

    "This is your brain on drugs" ad that showed an egg frying was satirized in "Nightmare on Elm Street" with Johnny Depp getting whacked in the head with frying pan by Freddy

    Krueger.

    One of the funniest spots in the Malaria No More campaign stars Helms as a big-game hunter. In the three-minute video, the actor suggests alternative techniques to kill malaria-

    borne mosquitoes, such as biting back.

    Helms traveled to Senegal to observe the problem and produce the spot. He called it "an incredible adventure" that he hopes will raise awareness. He feels the campaign can

    educate a broad audience, and he also hopes to "piss off a few mosquitoes in the process."

    Malaria was eradicated in the United States in the early 1950s, but still looms in the third world. In Africa, 2,000 children die every day from malaria, according to Malaria No

    More, which breaks down to a death every 45 seconds.

    Other tools to fight malaria include mosquito nets, insecticide and effective medicine. Banks sees those measures as the most effective but finds Helms' approach works, too.

    "He for sure is using the other best medicine to fight malaria," Banks said. "Humor."

    Most of the money raised for Malaria No More centers around $10 donations that come from texting to the word NET to 85944.

    Global funding initiatives aim to end the threat of malaria in five years.

    Said Novak: "Looking at it simply by the numbers, the math works out very well."

    NEW YORK A new public service announcement irreverently suggests one way to solve the malaria problem in Africa: Recruit a cadre of sexy mosquitoes called La Femme

    Mosquita to seduce and kill their disease-carrying counterparts.

    It's one example of the humor the nonprofit group Malaria No More hopes will spread awareness in eliminating the deadly disease.

    Twenty-Five Entertainers Launch Unique Awareness Campaign for Malaria No More

    NEW YORK, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Stars from television, film and music have joined Malaria No More to use their talent (and their funny bone) to shine a bright light on the malaria crisis and get people talking about malaria. Of course, there's nothing funny about malaria-but comedy can be a powerful tool for bringing the issue to

    a new audience. Although malaria was eradicated in the United States nearly 60 years ago, many Americans do not know that this preventable and treatable disease continues to

    claim the lives of more that 850,000 people every year-most of them children under the age of 5 in Africa.

    Comedy Fights Malaria takes a brand-new approach to an age-old health issue. Rather than the traditional method of earnest appeals for aid, Comedy Fights Malaria focuses first and foremost on providing entertaining content-in the form of web videos, public

    service announcements and character sketches-to educate and engage a new audience in the fight against malaria.

    NEW YORK, N.Y. - A new public service announcement irreverently suggests one way to solve the malaria problem in Africa: Recruit a cadre of sexy mosquitoes called La

    Femme Mosquita to seduce and kill their disease-carrying counterparts.

    It's one example of the humour the non-profit group Malaria No More hopes will spread awareness in eliminating the deadly disease.

    B.J. Novak, star of the NBC sitcom "The Office," likes the "laugh with us and not at us" approach. He and other celebrities including Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, John Mayer, and Orlando Bloom are lending their support to the group through a series of TV spots

    and viral videos.

    Novak said that public service announcements historically have gotten little respect, despite the importance of their causes, making them ripe for ridicule. The ubiquitous

    "This is your brain on drugs" ad that showed an egg frying was satirized in "Nightmare on Elm Street" with Johnny Depp getting whacked in the head with frying pan by Freddy

    Krueger.

    One of the funniest spots in the Malaria No More campaign stars Helms as a big-game hunter. In the three-minute video, the actor suggests alternative techniques to kill malaria-

    borne mosquitoes, such as biting back.

    Helms travelled to Senegal to observe the problem and produce the spot. He called it "an incredible adventure" that he hopes will raise awareness. He feels the campaign can

    educate a broad audience, and he also hopes to "piss off a few mosquitoes in the process."

    Malaria was eradicated in the United States in the early 1950s, but still looms in the third world. In Africa, 2,000 children die every day from malaria, according to Malaria No

    More, which breaks down to a death every 45 seconds.

    Other tools to fight malaria include mosquito nets, insecticide and effective medicine. Banks sees those measures as the most effective but finds Helms' approach works, too.

    "He for sure is using the other best medicine to fight malaria," Banks said. "Humour."

    Most of the money raised for Malaria No More centres around $10 donations that come from texting to the word NET to 85944.

    Global funding initiatives aim to end the threat of malaria in five years.

    Said Novak: "Looking at it simply by the numbers, the math works out very well."

    NEW YORK A new public service announcement irreverently suggests one way to solve the malaria problem in Africa: Recruit a cadre of

    sexy mosquitoes called La Femme Mosquita to seduce and kill their disease-carrying counterparts.

    It's one example of the humor the nonprofit group Malaria No More hopes will spread awareness in eliminating the deadly disease.

    B.J. Novak, star of the NBC sitcom "The Office," likes the "laugh with us and not at us" approach. He and other celebrities including Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, John Mayer, and Orlando Bloom are lending their support to the group through a series of TV spots

    and viral videos.

    Novak said that public service announcements historically have gotten little respect, despite the importance of their causes, making them ripe for ridicule. The ubiquitous

    "This is your brain on drugs" ad that showed an egg frying was satirized in "Nightmare on Elm Street" with Johnny Depp getting whacked in the head with frying pan by Freddy
