LeVar Burton’s decades-long commitment to Reading Rainbow is nothing if admirable, especially in the wake of his more-than-successful Kickstarter campaign to bring the show back. His vigor might be more than just charity, though, as a new Funny Or Die clip demonstrates.

It’s fairly dark, but, hey, you don’t have to take our word for it.
