Help us, Star Wars coronavirus memes. You’re our only hope.

Our planet is under attack from a deadly opponent the size of midichlorians. Sadly, we haven’t yet found any weaknesses in its tiny thermal exhaust ports that might let us blow this thing and, um, leave home.

Our only hope, today, is if our memes– getting the word out about handwashing and social distancing in an amusing, memorable, utterly shareable method– can go quicker than the infection. Which implies it’s time to highlight the big weapons, due to the fact that only one movie franchise’s memes can travel at point five previous light speed.

Star Wars fans, luckily, are stepping up and satisfying their fate. Here’s a selection of what they’ve developed. Ideally, these will assist your younglings find out to protect the Obi-Wans and Yodas in their lives by keeping away from them.

1. Be like Threepio. Er, Creepio.

The Auralnauts, makers of the sidesplittingly overdubbed dance music variation of the Skywalker saga referred to as Jedi Celebration, are back. This time, they have actually taken 1970s public health films starring C-3PO and R2-D2, and overdubbed the voice of Creepio rapping about COVID-19 and the important importance of handwashing.

In Jedi Celebration, Creepio is revealed to be covertly controling the entire galaxy, so it’s entirely in character that he takes his PSA way too far at the end.

2. Resemble Kylo.

This one is great, except we’re pretty sure Kylo and Rey weren’t talking on Skype. They use ForceTime.

3. Be like the Mandalorian. (Do Not resemble Infant Yoda.)

Thankfully, Star Wars has no scarcity of heros who are socially remote, too. The Mandalorian, who would not even remove his helmet except to non-infectious androids, most likely wins the coronavirus healthy practice sweepstakes.

The less said about Child Yoda’s practices, the much better. After all, the kid broke quarantine on Tatooine, went around the galaxy consuming random food without the slightest thought of disinfectant, and kept wishing to touch his child daddy.

4. Be like Vader– when he kept his range.

Lord Vader may have done precisely the incorrect thing when he choked Captain Antilles by touching him at the beginning of A New Hope. (Hey, a minimum of he was using gloves, which we hope he sterilized afterwards.)

However Vader quickly learns the right coronavirus practice, and by the time of Empire Strikes Back, he’s Force choking Admiral Ozzel from house by means of Zoom.

5. Resemble Yoda.
