Everyone knows Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod. The dynamic Canadian duo filled our childhood homes with workout PSAs that we can’t forget. But now, they're back and providing a different type of public service announcement. YVR’s BodyBreak video is all about providing COVID-19 tips and the nostalgia is real.

Admit it, you love everything from your childhood. Throwbacks to the '90s and early 2000s are where it’s at and we love any chance we get to relive the glory years. 

That's where Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod come in. As you read that, your internal voice probably yelled "body break.”

The classic PSAs always told us to get up and get active and whether or not you did it, you remember Johnson’s iconic moustache and McLeod's neon jumpsuits. 

As kids, these were the only adults we listened to and now, they're back with another commercial. 

The Vancouver International Airport just released a PSA with the two '90s icons and it’s all about how to keep yourself and others safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The Prime Minister has implored and the movie stars have all weighed in but to truly get the message out about social distancing we needed the help of two Canadian icons to spread the safety message,” wrote the airport on Twitter

At the start of the video is the iconic BodyBreak music riff. At this point, you should prepare for memories to flood back into your head. 

Their first tip is to practice safe social distancing. With the help of a six-foot-long piece of wood, they show you how far you should be standing from one another. 

The second tip is to make a habit out of sneezing or coughing into your elbow. 

Don’t forget to wash your hands properly. Johnson states that the best way to wash your hands thoroughly is to sing happy birthday to yourself. 

And yes, he does sing it to completion. 

The exclusive message provided by YVR ends with the two stars saying “until next time” which could mean there’s another video coming in the future. 

But it looks like we aren’t the only ones on board with this throwback. 

The video was posted to Reddit and it's now blowing up. Everyone is loving it and the nostalgia is hitting hard. 

“The heroes we need,” wrote one Reddit user. 

We couldn’t agree more.
