When shelter-in-place orders began in March, memes about how “Shakespeare wrote King Lear in quarantine” were impossible to miss on the internet. It was a way for droves of suddenly homebound people to joke about how to use this unprecedented time to focus on creative projects.
Listen to the Pop-Punk Coronavirus Banger From Cousin Greg of 'Succession'
Since then, we’ve seen countless coronavirus-inspired songs. Add to the list a music video from Nicholas Braun called "Antibodies (Do You Have The)," a (very) of-the-moment hook-up song that’s as cautious as it is anthemic.
Braun, who may be better known to “Succession” fans as Greg Hirsh (or to “Sky High” fans as Zach Springer) has actually been making music for years alongside his acting career. This latest single is a collaboration with PLUS1, and a portion of the proceeds from the single and merch sales will go toward Partners In Health and the COPE Program.
From the video’s website, “This partnership will empower Partners In Health to control the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the most vulnerable people around the world receive access to dignified healthcare. The COPE Program will work to bring equity of care and essential supplies and goods to the people of the Navajo Nation, the area that currently has the highest death rate from COVID-19 in the U.S.”
Check out the video for yourself, and watch for B-roll footage of Gov. Gavin Newsom with the lyrics, “I’ve been waiting patiently, I obeyed the rules / Now I’m ready to break them on you, no more sending nudes.”
