With nearly the entire world pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re all faced with uncharted territory, a major upheaval to our ordinary way of life. We’re also confronted with much more time at home, which led to a spark of delightful creativity by Canadian author Joel A.

We’ve seen some ingenuity spring out of this confusing, uncertain time, with similarly inspired videos making the rounds on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and other platforms in recent weeks.

There have also been humorous spins on classic album artwork, amended to reflect social distancing measures:

And “Weird Al Yankovic,” meanwhile, sang a song of his that has taken on added relevance right now:


But recreating the iconic opening credits to The Simpsons with live-action costumes and nods to social distancing? That’s top-shelf.
