Today, Julia Louis-Dreyfus delivered the "Stay Home" message we all need right now.
The actress, known for playing bumbling politician Selina Meyer in “VEEP” and “Seinfeld” bestie Elaine Benes, is in rare form as she tries to apply her makeup in isolation, without the assistance of her go-to glam team. As she smudges on bright red lipstick, she tells us that her stylists are all at home staying safe, as should the viewer. While blotting, she also reminds us of the six-foot social distancing rule. The results would give Ronald McDonald a run for his money.
The PSA is a much welcome bit of humor at a time when we’re now being bombarded with plenty of earnest, heartfelt and even head-scratching fare.
The office of California Governor Gavin Newsom shared Louis-Dreyfus’ video on Twitter today. California expects to reach its coronavirus peak in May, and under Newsom, a Democrat who took office last year, it was the first state in the country to be subject to a stay-at-home order in mid-March.
Newsom just secured a deal to ensure the state receives a supply of 200 million masks (both N95 and surgical) monthly, and earlier this week, he pledged to send 500 ventilators to the Strategic National Stockpile to aid states, including New York, that are dealing with severe shortages.
