I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to round up a bunch of millionaire celebrities and have them sing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ to get our spirits up during these tough coronavirus times, but it turned out to be one of the cringiest videos in internet history.

I don’t want to be too harsh because I like a lot of these people and understand they’re just trying to entertain/stay sane while quarantined, but 1) none of them can actually sing and 2) my god this is just terrible.
“We are in this together, we will get through it together.”
Gal Gadot just posted a video of her and other artists (who are also quarantined because of the COVID-19) singing Imagine by John Lennon on Instagram. pic.twitter.com/fRV6GhAF92

Ah yes, what would we do without celebrities posting videos like this and telling us little people that everything is going to be OK? I mean that was just awful! The weird part is that some of them are major names like Gal Gadot and Will Ferrell and others just look like randomers who somehow managed to sneak their clips in there. No idea who the guy at 0:30 was for example but I hate him already.
Much of the reaction on Twitter seems to be people annoyed at these celebrities singing that everything’s going to be alright from their massive houses while people out there who are genuinely struggling don’t know where their next paycheck is coming from. Maybe while self-isolating these celebrities don’t have their PR people around to tell them what a dumb idea this was?
Anyway, appreciate the thought but maybe think it through a little bit next time. Or at least enlist a crew of celebrities who can actually sing. Maybe the rest of them could donate some money or something?
