Best thing on the internet right now is this Neil Diamond video.

He changed the lyrics in “Sweet Caroline” to better fit the times, and as a reminder to all the nasty folks out there who aren’t washing their hands.


…washing hands…

…Reaching out…

…don’t touch me, I won’t touch you…”

The 79-year-old opens the video saying, “I know we’re going through a rough time right now, but I love you, and I think maybe if we sing together, well, we’ll just feel a little bit better.”
