Gru from ‘Despicable Me’ teams up with WHO for coronavirus relief


Gru, from ‘Despicable Me,’ has teamed up with the World Health Organization for a public service announcement on how to take care of one another during the coronavirus pandemic. Steve Carell, as Gru, in a minute-long video explains different things people can do to keep safe during the pandemic.

“Now this does not come naturally to me,” Gru said. “But, be kind to each other. This is a tough time for everyone.”

It then shows clips from the Dreamworks film where Gru and his minions promote social distancing.

“At this challenging time, we must find all ways possible to provide hope to people while sharing advice that can protect our health,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom, Director-General of the World Health Organization. “WHO is excited to be working with Illumination and Steve Carell and the joys of the Minions and Gru to promote the importance of physical distancing, keeping active and connected, and being kind and compassionate to overcome COVID-19.”
