‘Schitt’s Creek’ Shares How To Properly Social Distance In Hilarious Photos
In the words of David: “I'm trying very hard not to connect with people right now.”
Staying away from others? Love that journey for you. These Schitt's Creek social distancing photos will keep you laughing long enough to forget how much you miss the feel of a hug. It even seems that both David and Moira have been distancing themselves for years.
Now that you have a bunch of time to kill, it's probably a good time to consider finally binge-watching the CBC sitcom. Or just watch it from start to finish for the second time.
They've been in our hearts and homes since 2015 and next month, we prepare ourselves to say goodbye to them after six seasons.
Luckily, that goodbye will be extended just a little longer with a. There's also the planned to begin in June, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, it's unsure if that will be postponed or cancelled.
Until then, you can get your fill of the Canadian cast with new episodes of season six, seasons one to five on Netflix Canada, or even just by following them on social media.
Earlier today, the Schitt's Creek Twitter account posted "social distancing examples from David Rose." The set of four hilarious photos shows David keeping a safe distance from others including Patrick, Moira, Ray, and Stevie.
They followed up with a reminder that says, "but really, please just stay home."
If you're one of the many people using a Zoom account to chat with coworkers or friends, they also shared some background photos that will make you feel like you're on a set without having to visit.
That would be super useful because the show's Twitter account also wrote, "Friends, we've heard there are still groups of people visiting the town where we filmed #SchittsCreek. Now is not the time. Please stay home until it's safe to visit again. At the moment, it is a health risk to the residents of the town, some of whom are immunocompromised."
You might get some laughs from this clip of Moira keeping her safe distance from Alexis, who has the flu. A Twitter user shared the video with others writing, "If everyone was Moira we’d be fine."
Co-creator and star Dan Levy has been documenting his journey of social distancing online too.
He shared a newfound difficulty with writing, "The absurdly infuriating act of trying to open my dog’s poop bags without licking my fingers to get the bag open has been making me laugh. So... I have that."
A few days later he discovered that "Quarantine = people on the internet taking their clothes off for literally no reason? This isn’t a complaint."
Schitt's Creek isn't the only iconic Canadian TV show sharing words of advice during these difficult times.
Kim's Convenience star Paul Sun-Hyung Lee took to Twitter to share a video message of hope to his fans.
"I just wanted to send you a message of reassurance that we're doing the right thing," Lee said. "As Appa would say, 'ya you don't have to worry. Light is still on, water is still running, toilet is still fresh, that's a big deal. Not so much toilet paper because everyone is hoarding, but that's why we have a shower."
He advised people to "have a movie marathon, read a book, call some friends, go online, study different things, learn a new hobby."
The show's Twitter account also shared a graphic using Appa's iconic "Ok, see you" line. The advice includes, "Stay home if you can. Eat healthy & exercise. Encourage your friends to check in on each other."
But nothing beats a good ole meme. Their account posted a screencap of Janet's disgusted face looking at a couple, accompanied by the caption, "Watching people still refusing to social distance like…"
They also shared a clip from the show that's totally relatable to the toilet paper crisis.
