Published Jul 16, 2020At this point, the rules of living in the pandemic are clear — wash your hands, wear a mask and stay six feet apart. But here to remind you of the importance of social distancing is now Tom Hanks, who's become a life-sized decal in Toronto to remind you to stay apart.
Yes, images of COVID-19 survivor are actually being plastered across Toronto in a new campaign launched by Public Inc. It even has its own goofy hashtag: #HanksForDistancing.
"As luck would have it, Tom Hanks (who recovered from COVID, and is a vocal mask and distancing champion) is exactly 6 feet tall, making him the perfect safety measurement tool. (And who wouldn't listen to Tom Hanks?)," the company said in a statement.
The campaign launched yesterday (July 15) in Toronto. So far, Tom Hanks decals can be found in front of two LCBO locations (87 Front St. E and 49 Spadina Ave.). Public Inc. also promises more businesses are coming soon.
You can learn more about the campaign here, where you can also get info on securing your very own Tom Hanks decal.
To sign off, "'Hanks for reading, and remember to stay 6 feet apart."
