Robert Englund on the Importance of Wearing Gloves

The whole world is living a collective nightmare right now. COVID-19 has left us stuck indoors and away from friends and family. Coronavirus is terrifying, and many are feeling the effects, from the disease itself and the precautions we’re taking to combat it. But it will end eventually. One day we will all wake up and things will begin getting back to normal. Until then, we must stay vigilant by remembering what steps we can take in our efforts to stop it. And to remind us of what precautions are necessary, yet another celebrity has filmed a PSA. He wants us to to stay home and wash our hands. But he also wants us to do one thing when we must go out, and when Freddy Krueger himself says it he means it: A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Robert Englund reminds us to wear gloves.

The horror icon filmed what might be the best celebrity COVID-19 PSA yet. It’s short, to the point, and it makes us both laugh and freak out at the same time. So exactly like A Nightmare on Elm Street movie.

Although, with the way the world is going right now, meeting Freddy in our dreams tonight might not be as horrible as it would normally be. It would be nice to talk to someone face-to-face without worrying about germs. Sure, sure, you’d have to be worried about him torturing and murdering you. But the longer this quarantine goes on the more that’s a risk we’re willing to take.

This video was posted ahead of this weekend’s True Terror marathon on Travel Channel. Englund’s new show, which premiered last month, “journeys into the darkest corners of America’s past to uncover stories that are as terrifying as they are real.”

Right now that show doesn’t seem as dark and terrifying as it normally would either, just like a video from Freddy Krueger himself has cheered us up. Fortunately, one day this nightmare will end and we’ll all go back to being scared by less worrisome fears, like a supernatural murderer with a knife glove who kills us in our dreams.
