Earlier, Slovenia-based creative Jure Tovrljan gave us a happy distraction with his set of coronavirus-age brand logos. Now he’s back with a new project: a series of posters depicting beloved TV shows whose characters are now taking social distancing seriously. 

Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones” sits in an armchair with a bowl of popcorn on her lap and a remote control in her hand. Michael Scott from “The Office” lounges in bed wearing a mask with the show’s title changed to “The Home Office.” All the “Friends” are seen videoconferencing instead of hanging out at The Central Perk.

“The Mother” from “How I Met Your Mother” has a Tinder profile. The blueprint of the prison in “Prison Break” takes on the shape of a house, “The Simpsons” are all shown wearing masks, “The Walking Dead” becomes “The Walking Deaf” and “Breaking Bad” becomes “Baking Bread.”

"As the situation is obviously getting worse I wanted to spread the word in a language that most people understand—through entertainment," Tovrljan tells Ad Age. For him, the point is about "awareness on the topic on one side, and ideas for something to do at home on the other. I believe that is least I can do."
