Organ Donation Has A Theme Song

Organ donation is not inherently funny, but last night's 30 Rock teamed up with a few aging rock stars (Cyndi Lauper, Elvis Costello) and some younger wannabes (Clay Aiken) to produce "He Needs a Kidney" video last night.

If you're not old enough to remember the earnestness of 80s rock stars singing about starving Ethiopians in the "We Are the World" video, you may not get all the campy references, but it's still pretty funny.

This clip contains the whole episode, but you can download just the video on iTunes to benefit the National Kidney Foundation.

Thanks to NPR's Brenda Wilson for tipping us.
