'Stay home, I am watching you': New York Governor releases video featuring Robert De Niro

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has released multiple videos featuring celebrities to urge people to stay home to prevent the novel coronavirus from spreading.

One of them included Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro who channeled his character from the 2000 movie Meet the Parents in the public service announcement.

The actor had played a former CIA agent who intimidates his daughter’s love interest, played by Ben Stiller.

Another clip stars Stiller himself, although his bit is that he’s staying home to take on a new, albeit unusual, hobby.

“I’ve always been interested in chainsaw art,” Stiller said. “Never had the time to explore it and now through the miracle of the internet, some tutorials and Etsy, I’ve been able to really get into it. I mean, I know nothing about it, but I’m learning every day.”

The virus had infected thousands of people in New York, with governor Cuomo repeatedly urging the citizens to stay home to reduce the burden on the nation's health system.
