In case you were wondering, it is actually possible for us to love our pals Gillian Jacobs and Nick Offerman more than we already did. It’s possible because how can you not love tiny animated versions of your friends? That’s right! Jacobs and Offerman are the new animated talent for some new National Public Radio videos, and they play a perfect angel and devil, respectively.

National Public Radio has been bringing great programming to the airwaves since 1971 and continues to be a great source for local, national and global news now in 2015. They work with incredible journalists, artists and producers too. Plus, guys… their tote bags are amazing. And if they continue to bring us great little fundraising videos like this one? The sky’s the limit. If you’re a fan of NPR, public radio, and quality original content, please consider donating this holiday season!
