The Muppets are doing their part to encourage fans to get their COVID-19 vaccine. In a new public service announcement, Gonzo and Pepe team up with the Ad Council and COVID Collaborated to reveal some big news: they got vaccinated!
Yes, apparently, even Muppets are now eligible.
"Getting vaccinated means we're one step closer to getting back to normal," Gonzo says. The four-armed Pepe quickly adds, "Sí, even if you weren't normal to begin with."
Their pun-filled PSA ("Go ahead, give it a shot. See what I did?") is all about getting informed on the vaccination process, and it's not the Muppets' first video promoting COVID-19 inoculations. Elmo's dad, Louie, is now fully vaccinated, and he shares how he and his son are "feeling hopeful" in their own video.
