Nearly 40 percent of hospitalized Coronavirus patients are as young as 20, according to the CDC **, so millennial Billboard Top 40 artist Jaki Nelson, who has an underlying health condition, wanted to get the word out to young people with, “(Don’t Get) Physical”, a 20-second musical hand-washing PSA.
“(Don’t Get) Physical” is a parody of Dua Lipa’s “Physical” that also features Loris (“The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula”, Season 1) as “Corona” with a cameo from Billboard artist Joey Suarez.
