WATCH: Actor Kevin James 2-Minute Film Mocking Coronavirus Response

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Actor and producer Kevin James released a short film mocking some of the responses surrounding coronavirus-related lockdowns and how bad they could be.

As the Daily Wire reports, James shared the 2-minute video, titled “Out of Touch,” that opens with a scene of a man and him fleeing from law enforcement.

Cowering behind a tree, the two men are hiding from police cars, dogs, and even a helicopter before one man runs off and is caught. James is then found and the scene changes to “six hours earlier.”

In the flashback, James is sitting on a park bench when he sees the other man jogging on a path. The two exchange a brief conversation and then shake hands.

They shook hands — making physical contact — during the coronavirus pandemic.

The horror.

As the contact is made, the camera pans to reveal an on-looker phoning the police about the witnessed contact.

The Daily Wire reports:

The video is a clear hit on the folks who are all too eager to call authorities on folks not appropriately “social distancing”; these people have been mockingly dubbed “Karens.”

In real life, some of those “Karens” are members of the American news media. In one prime example, CBS Chicago ran a full segment on a local ice cream truck driver for violating “COVID-19 protocol.” The working man was harassed on bike by a CBS reporter, who filmed the scolding.

According to the report, the video comes after several incidents of concerned citizens calling the police on alleged violators of lockdown protocols.

From the Daily Wire:

Last month, Wisconsin neighbors alerted police to a local mother who allowed her young daughter to have a playdate at another neighbor’s house. The police showed up at her home and harassed her. “Stop having your kid go by other people’s home!” one officer yelled.

And earlier this month, two young Texas women, ages 20 and 31, were arrested after police were tipped off by neighbors that they were providing beauty services for money in their homes, an apparent violation of a stay-at-home order. Neighbors of Ana Isabel Castro-Garcia, 31, and Brenda Stephanie Mata, 20, sent anonymous tips to the Laredo Police Department via an app, according to the Midland Reporter-Telegram.


  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
