Former first lady Michelle Obama is getting into the fray and joining a group of celebrities to promote the coronavirus vaccine participation, according to Breitbart News.
According to the publication Obama is teaming up with Alicia Keys, Jonah Hill, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, as well as several others, to get their message out about the coronavirus vaccine.
The group is promoting the idea that the vaccine, plus the booster, will “keep yourself and those around you safe.”
The campaign, which is meant to bring humor to the idea of getting the shot, comes from The Second City improv comedy group, and plays on the idea of a mother nagging someone into getting vaccinated, featuring the mothers of some of the most iconic movie superhero:
“To do it, they’ll use every power in the mom book,” the narrator says, citing bribery, guilt-tripping, and “texting way too many times,” Breitbart reported.
Some of the mom’s featured in the video are Pauletta Washington — the wife of Denzel Washington and mother of John David Washington, who says that she has gotten over her reluctance to take the vaccination.
Robin Paul, mother to NBA athlete Chris Paul, also was hesitant but said, “You don’t have to live in fear once you get the vaccination,” she said.
“Just get the vaccine,” said Claire Stoermer, mother to Spider-Man and Dune actress Zendaya.
Michelle Obama wrapped up the trope saying, “You don’t need to be a mom to be a superhero. You can keep yourself and those around you safe by getting your COVID vaccine or booster today.”
