Full House is making its way into the hearts of American viewers once again. But this time, it’s with a fun parody reminding people to “Stay home and stay safe!” Bob Saget, along with several other members of the cast (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, as well as Lori Loughlin were noticeably absent from the video), remade the show’s iconic opening credits. They imagine what the show would be like if it were happening during this time of social and physical distancing.
Saget posted the “Full Quarantine” video and stated: “Stay Safe and Stay Home. —Unlike #FullHouse this will all go away.”
That’s right. Full House will never, never end. We’ll have sequels and reboots until the end of time. Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier), DJ (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber) filmed their title card segments but with a quarantine twist. The show’s creator Jeff Franklin joined in on the fun as well. Each moment is perfectly in character. Whether it’s Saget furiously applying hand sanitizer to himself and his cleaning supplies or Barber grappling with the all too real feeling of almost being out eggs—they deliver their looks in true 1980s family sitcom fashion. Such pros.
The Full House cast isn’t the only popular former sitcom who has banded together during the quarantine. The cast of The Nanny recently took to the popular video communication site Zoom to do a table read. The title? The Nanny Episode 1: Pandemic Table Read. Drescher told Variety the reason for the read was, “Laughter is the best medicine! So, in these challenging times, Petah and I thought, wouldn’t it be great if we pulled together the original cast of The Nanny for a virtual read of the pilot?”
While the Full House cast performs basic social isolation activities (Uncle Joey seems to have taken up the art of fishing for pizza?) while the iconic opening song plays, it really does put you in the mood for a Full House rewatch. Have mercy!
