Viral Video (And Must-See TV): "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution"

Tonight at 9 pm, ABC is premiering a television show that all you computer potatoes need to see: “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.”

Oliver, a well-known chef from Britain, is taking his war against unhealthy eating habits to American shores, starting in West Virginia. The U.S. is suffering from an obesity epidemic and he aims to stop it, one pizza for breakfast at a time.

The scene of kids in a classroom thinking a tomato is a potato and school bureaucrats calling french fries a vegetable is really rivetingly sad.

Oliver won this year’s TED Prize at the high-profile conference–you can add your name to his online petition here to “save cooking and improve school food.”

You can also watch the show online here.

Here’s the video of his speech at TED, as well as the trailer for “Food Revolution”:
