Still not sure what social distancing should look like? Mel Brooks and his son Max are here to help. On Monday, the two shared a funny video in which Max explains the concept while his 93-year-old dad maintains his distance through a sliding glass door.

“I’m Max Brooks. I’m 47 years old. This is my dad. He’s 93. If I get the coronavirus, I’ll probably be okay,” Max explains. “But if I give it to him, he could give it to Carl Reiner, who could give it to Dick Van Dyke, and before I know it, I’ve wiped out a whole generation of comedic legends. When it comes to coronavirus, I have to think about who I can infect. And so should you.” The PSA ends with Max urging viewers, “Don’t be a spreader,” as Mel knocks on the glass door and tells him, “Go home.”
