Gal Gadot Calls On Celeb Pals To Sing 'Imagine' While In Self-Isolation
| Last updated
As more and more people go into self-isolation to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus, Wonder Woman actor Gal Gadot called on some of her Hollywood pals to perform a rendition of John Lennon hit 'Imagine' to remind people that 'we're in this together' - and posted the results online:
The three-minute long clip was shared on Gal's Instagram page and showed a host of stars, including Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo and Will Ferrell, taking turns to sing.
In the video, Gal says: "Hey guys! Day six in self-quarantine and I've got to say these past few days have got me feeling a bit philosophical.
"You know this virus... it has affected the entire world. Everyone. It doesn't matter who you are, or where you're from, we're all in this together.
"I saw a video of an Italian guy playing the trumpet on his balcony, for all the people locked in their homes, and he was playing 'Imagine' and there was something so powerful and pure about this video."
She then sings the first line of the song before the video quickly switches to Kristen Wiig. It then goes onto Jamie Dornan before going to Labrinth and then to James Marsden, who hands over to Sarah Silverman and... well, you get the point. More stars than you can see in the night sky, basically.
The video ends with Gal singing the closing lines.
Gal isn't the only celebrity to try and lift spirits during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Comedian Ricky Gervais has promised his fans he'll go live on Instagram every night to tell jokes and try and give people a laugh during this weird, confusing situation we all find ourselves in.
In last night's clip he jokingly told fans he would do 'fashion tips' and 'survival tips' before laughing and explaining it was live, so it wasn't going to be 'top quality entertainment'.
"When I do something like After Life," he explained, "it takes me, like, six months to write.
"Then you cast it and direct it, it takes six or seven weeks to film, then, like, 14 weeks to edit. This is me talking b******* for free... whilst having a little drink."
B******* or not, fans are delighted with Ricky's fun clips, with one person posting: "Thanks for this, Ricky. We need all the laughs and smiles we can get these days. You and Jane stay safe!"
And a second writing: "Great stuff Ricky, yes please do this every day, it makes us laugh. It's a real morale booster. You are a LEGEND."
Keep up the good work, mate.
