How to help those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, in Austin and beyond

Tremble in despair as Gal Gadot and her famous friends sing "Imagine” from quarantine

Why is this happening?

March 19, 2020

If you are under the illusion that the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting self-quarantine will lead to great art, Gal Gadot is here to set you right. Last night, the Wonder Woman actress shared an Instagram video driven by a combination of a looming sense of mortality driven by the crisis and a patronizing urge for unity driven by a viral video of a trumpeter in Italy.

After a brief introduction, Gadot debuts an acapella rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine" with each line sung by a different celebrity. People like Jimmy Fallon, Zoe Kravitz, Sia, and Mark Ruffalo all volunteered for this thoroughly embarrassing spectacle. Watching the full thing will have the opposite of the intended "faith-in-humanity-restored" viral effect, unless you're extremely wealthy and/or think the vision of celebrities raining down blessings on plebes from their ivory towers is somehow helpful.

The clip has already been retooled by Tim and Eric collaborator DJ Dougpound into a version that is, somehow, more true to the spirit of the Gadot-mix than the Gadot-mix itself. Watch below.
