COVID-19

With coronavirus lockdown in place there's not much one can do to kill time, apart from working and binge-watching favorite shows. However, a family from Canada took their quarantine to a different level when they dressed up as the major characters of The Simpsons to recreate the iconic school scene enacted in the original intro tune. The idea was of Joel A. Sutherland, an award-winning author and librarian, who along with his wife and children decided to enact the famous intro from The Simpsons after discovering Haloween costumes in their basement.

In the video, Sutherland’s son dressed up like Bart Simpson can be seen writing 'I will social distance' on the blackboard and then rushing out of the basement. The video ends with the entire family coming and sitting together on a couch, however, they don't clap each others' hands at the end as shown in the original into, instead they do it in the air to highlight the importance of minimal physical contact amid COVID-19. The video was shared by Sutherland on Twitter, which has since garnered over 5,50,000 views and over 26,000 likes.
