Now here’s a celebrity coronavirus video we can get behind.
“You’re hurting old people like me. Well, not me… I’ll never see you.”

In classic Curb Your Enthusiasm fashion, Larry David reminds everyone that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay home and that “nothing good ever happens going out of the house.”
Hello, I’m Larry David. Obviously somebody put me up to this ’cause it’s generally not the kind of thing I do. But I basically want to address the idiots out there, and you know who you are. You’re going out, and 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 me. I have nothing to do with it. I’ll never see you. But, you know, other – let’s say other old people, who might be your relatives. Who the hell knows.
But 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. I mean, I don’t know how you’re passing that up. Well, maybe if you’re not … you’re not that bright.
But here it is. Go home! Watch TV! That’s my advice to you. You know, if you’ve seen my show, nothing good ever happens going out of the house. You know that. It’s just trouble out there. It’s not a good place to be. So stay home and, you know, don’t see anyone, except maybe if there’s a plumbing emergency, let the plumber in and then, you know, wipe everything down after he leaves. But that — but that’s it.
Listen to Larry, people! We’re missing a lot of the rituals and fun of springtime, but if we all do our part we just might get to baseball season after all. (And as an LA Dodgers fan who woke up to the fabulous news that the six-year feud over local market broadcast rights is finally over and we can now watch Dodgers games live in our homes, I really, really want that to happen.)
