Comedy icon Mel Brooks and his son, “World War Z” author Max Brooks, produced a video Monday encouraging viewers to take steps to avoid spreading the coronavirus.
In the video, the younger Brooks notes that he is 47, whereas his father, who appears behind a glass door, is 93. “If I get the coronavirus, I’ll probably be okay. But if I give it to him, he could give it to Carl Reiner, who could give it to Dick Van Dyke, and before I know it, I’ve wiped out a whole generation of comedic legends,” he adds.
“When it comes to coronavirus, I have to think about who I can infect, and so should you” the younger Brooks adds, advising viewers to practice social distancing by avoiding crowds, staying home whenever possible and keeping six feet apart from people.
