Seinfeld's Larry David Made A COVID-19 PSA, Telling "Idiots" To Stay Inside
The Curb Your Enthusiasm star has a simple message for everyone--embrace the excuse to stay home and watch television.
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) forces people around the world to stay inside and practice good hygiene, many celebrities are taking it upon themselves to create PSAs asking us to stay safe. While the cast of Watchmen advised us to wash our hands, and the stars of Contagion explained what they learned making the film, Larry David's new PSA takes a different, far more caustic approach.
In a tweet made by the Office of the Governor of California, Larry David--the co-creator of Seinfeld, and creator and star of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm--encourages people to stay indoors and to not give into their worst instincts if they're idiots.
“You’re hurting old people like me. Well, not me... I’ll never see you.”— Office of the Governor of California (@CAgovernor) March 31, 2020
Larry David wants everyone to stay home to protect older Californians from #COVID19!
He does not do these things.

"I basically want to address the idiots out there, you know who you are," David opens. "You're going out--I don't know what you're doing, you're socializing too close, it's not good, you're hurting old people like me...well, not like me, I have nothing to do with you. I'll never see you."
David goes on to encourage people to stay home and catch up on television. "The problem is you're passing up a fantastic opportunity--a once in a lifetime opportunity--to stay in the house, sit on the couch, and watch TV," he explains. "I don't know how you're passing that up!"
Of course, his message assumes a certain level of financial stability, as not everyone can afford to take the break and watch television all day--it's not hard to imagine his Curb Your Enthusiasm co-star Susie Essman chewing him out for this the moment the cameras stop rolling.
Curb Your Enthusiasm recently wrapped up its tenth season on HBO.
