Larry David is staying home after an outstanding Season 10 of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and urges “the idiots” to do the same during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Seinfeld co-creator gave a PSA in a video shared by the Office of the Governor of California, telling people to stay home and watch television: “The problem is you’re passing up a fantastic opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to stay in the house, sit on the couch, and watch TV! I don’t know how you’re passing that up. Well, maybe ’cause you’re not that bright.”
Here’s the full video:
“You’re hurting old people like me. Well, not me… I’ll never see you.”

“Hello, I’m Larry David. Obviously somebody put me up to this, ’cause it’s generally not the kind of thing I do.
But, I basically want to address the idiots out there. You know who you are. You’re going out. I don’t know what you’re doing. You’re socializing too close. It’s not good. You’re hurting old people like me. Well, not me. I have nothing to do with you. I’ll never see you. But you know, other, let’s say other people that might be your relatives. Who the hell knows.
The problem is you’re passing up a fantastic opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to stay in the house, sit on the couch, and watch TV! I don’t know how you’re passing that up. Well, maybe ’cause you’re not that bright. But, here it is: go home! Watch TV! That’s my advice to you! You know, if you’ve seen my show… nothing good ever happens going out of the house. You know that. There’s just trouble out there. It’s not a good place to be.
So stay home, and, you know, don’t see anyone. Except maybe if there’s a plumbing emergency, let the plumber in and then, you know, wipe everything down after he leaves. But that, that’s it. Ok.”
California became the first state to issue a stay-at-home order, when governor Gavin Newsom did so on March 19. But many “idiots” have still been going out and about regularly, and not practicing social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak. Hopefully they listen to Latte Larry, and take advantage of the “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to stay home and watch television in the coming weeks.
