Larry David did not curb his criticism for people who are violating social distancing protocol during the coronavirus pandemic.
David, the co-creator of “Seinfeld” and star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” cut a public service announcement for the California governor’s office, encouraging people to keep their distance.
“I basically wanna address all the idiots out there, and you know who you are,” David said in the PSA, sitting at his home. "You’re socializing too close, it’s not good. You’re hurting old people like me. Well, not me, I have nothing to do with you. I’ll never see you, but, you know, other old people who might be your relatives.”
In the 90-second promo, David said people who violated social distancing were missing “a fantastic opportunity -- a once in a lifetime opportunity -- to stay in the house, sit on the couch and watch TV.”
David then made a reference to his social misadventures in his “Curb Your Enthusiasm” episodes.
“If you’ve seen my show, nothing good ever happens going out of the house,” David said. “There’s just trouble out there. It’s not a good place to be.”
The promo ends with the slogan, “Stay home. Save Lives.”
