The coronavirus has drastically altered the day-to-day lives of millions upon millions of people around the globe. Concerts, festivals, conferences and public events are being postponed or canceled to avoid the spread of the virus. However, one celebrity has some sage advice regarding cleanliness and well-being. That superstar happens to be Mariah Carey and, with the help of her adorable twins Moroccan and Monroe, she’s using her own music to deliver a vital message to society: wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds or longer!

“Fantasy” is one of Mimi’s 19 No. 1 singles, and it’s cherished by Lambs and casual fans alike. However, the singer’s hand-washing tutorial features a popular verse from a remix starring late New York rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard. “Me and Mariah // Go back like babies and pacifiers,” is one of the most iconic lyrics in pop culture and now it’s being utilized for a greater cause. As it turns out, the “Fantasy” remix is a perfect tune to wash your hands to.
Coronavirus has made social media a dreary place to navigate, but Mariah’s year-long festive spirit simply can’t be tamed. Her lovable kids obviously inherited her charisma, and they’re just as eager to demonstrate the proper way to stay clean in the midst of a pandemic. The most relatable part of this TikTok video is the fact that an iPhone timer was used to ensure that the required 20 seconds were met. After all, you can never be too safe when a contagious disease is involved.
The happiness displayed in Mariah’s video certainly brought smiles to many faces, which is more than necessary in a time when people are literally fighting over toilet paper at grocery stores. Leave it to the Queen of Christmas to spread cheer even in the bleakest of times… with clean hands and a healthy dose of social distancing, to boot.
