6 of The Funniest Videos To Come Out of Self-Isolation!
Captain’s log: Social distancing day number… who even knows anymore?
It’s a crazy time right now, thanks to the ever-changing details surrounding the coronavirus. But there’s one detail that remains the same: STAY. HOME.
Admittedly, it’s a hard adjustment – particularly if you live alone. You miss your friends, maybe your family, and certainly the ability to just go out and eat. With no clear end to the social distancing mandate, people are starting to get a little stir crazy.
But madness has a bit of a habit of sparking creativity. Between TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram Live, people have produced some seriously entertaining videos to entertain us – and probably themselves – during this pandemic.
TakeChris Mann, for example.
Not only did he create “My Corona” -- a parody on the classic “My Sharona” -- but he also doubled down and gave us “Stay Home Vogue”.
Good luck getting either one out of your head.
Personally, my favorite part of all this is the teamwork. TikTok userParamind went ahead and put together “Coronavirus Rhapsody” after Dana Jay Bein wrote the lyrics on Twitter.

Of course, TikTok limits how long your videos can be. If you want an idea of the full version of the song – which had me near crying laughing – check out the full thread below.

I wrote Coronavirus Rhapsody:
Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality.
These are all pretty old songs, though, right? Let’s get a little closer to the 21st century. Enter Kathy Mak, an actress and dancer from Hong Kong – a place where the coronavirus has hit particularly hard.
Mak rewroteNatalie Imbruglia’s 1997 hit “Torn”, even filming a full-on music video for it, illustrating the struggles of being in open public spaces right now.
If I’m being truthful, that one is my second-favorite so far. My top choice comes from our girl JoJo who is BACK in a big way. She turned her own 2004 hit “Leave (Get Out)” into “Chill (Stay Home)”.
I just about choked at “I’m deadass about that.” We’ve missed you JoJo.
But if you want a social distancing jam for your kids that will really stick? Well, you can thank Kevin Mihlfield and his rewrite of Lil Nas X's “Old Town Road”.
Now, these are just some of the songs that are out there. There are undoubtedly many more, and then there’s entire “quarantine” and “social distancing” tags on any and every social platform.
