Directory assistance company KGB (Knowledge Generation Bureau) is known for its commercials. The advertisements star a pair of agents (named Agent W and Agent M, according to the commercial transcripts). Several of these commercials were made for Super Bowls.
KGB's website originally hosted the company's first set of ten advertisements (called "episodes"). A few follow-up episodes were produced after these ten.
In the first KGB commercial, Agent W proves she is "the best" by answering several random questions from the chief of the KGB. The questions in this commercial include "What's the capital of New Zealand? (Wellington)," "The 17th Fibonacci number (1597)," "Who was Queen Elizabeth's husband? (She never married)," and "How many hamsters standing on each other's shoulders would it take to reach the Moon? (2,282,764,988 and a half)."
Note: This is the only episode not to feature Agent M, the redheaded agent's male partner.
Meet the TeamEdit
Agent W is introduced to various other agents at the Knowledge Generation Bureau. She then meets her business partner, Agent M, who is eating a grapple (grape/apple).
The two agents are amazed by one of KGB's specialists, Agent Horoscopes, who can answer questions before their askers even finish talking. The questions in this episode include "Is the Museum of Art open? (No, it's closed on Tuesdays)" and "What is a Dendrobium? (It's a type of orchid)."
The two agents are on the scene at the house of a man in "brain lock." He is trying to remember who played first base for the Red Sox in 1986 (Bill Buckner).
The two agents are at KGB HQ when they receive the question, "What's a good daiquiri recipe?" They rush into their smart car and recklessly drive to a suburban backyard to answer.

Note: The two main agents, Agent W and Agent M, are only seen in the background of the KGB office. They have no lines.
A professor calls the Knowledge Generation Bureau. The two agents find out that his students are experiencing brain farts ("an involuntary release of ignorance").
The two agents are asked if there is a mascot stupider than an aardvark. Agent M comes up with the Boll Weevil of the University of Arkansas. As the aardvark is walking down a hallway, the Boll Weevil appears out of nowhere and attacks him.
Two teenage boys ask the KGB if you can milk a hamster. Off the top of her head, Agent W answers that it is possible since they are mammals.

The two agents challenge two customers to find a good clown for a birthday party. The first, found by KGB, steals the show while the one found through a random Internet link is terrifying.
