Coronavirus has everybody on lockdown,(apparently the folks in Nashville didn’t get the memo) but now, celebrities and people have influence have taken to social media to urge people to stay home.
The latest PSA comes from the former Mr. Olympia, Conan the Barbarian, the Terminator, AND the former Governor of California, the great Arnold Schwarzenegger. From the comfort of his own kitchen, and with the help of a mini-horse and a donkey (named Whiskey and LuLu), Arnold urged folks to stay home, observe the curfew, and forget about going to restaurants and bars.
I mean, if this doesn’t convince you to stay home, nothing will.
Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together. pic.twitter.com/FRg41QehuB
But of course, the great Ed Orgeron, head football coach of the National Championship-winning LSU Tigers, also delivered a PSA to the good people of Louisiana. He took the more informative approach, urging people to wash their hands, cover their mouths, and protect their at-risk family members.
While it definitely wasn’t as funny as Arnold’s, and he didn’t bring any miniature farm animals, everybody listens to Coach O. No matter what, when Coach O speaks, you shut your damn mouth and pay attention. Equally effective.
Honestly, with March Madness canceled, this is what we need to be doing. We have 64 different “celebrities” give their best Coronavirus PSA and we let them go head-to-head, tournament style.
We’ll fill out the brackets, each of the 64 will record their PSA (sorry Arnold and Ed, you have to redo it), and we’ll vote on each individual matchup. Whoever submits the best bracket wins a pandemic-length supply of toilet paper and the whole thing will be sponsored by Charmin.
