  • As people try to kill time in isolation,

  • viral challenges are becoming more popular than ever.

  • And over the weekend,

  • Simone Biles took things to the next level.

  • (TV plays indistinctly in the background)

  • (whooping on TV)

  • (indistinct male voice on TV)

  • Okay.

  • Okay now.

  • (woman speaks over radio)

  • MAN (on TV): This is new.

  • BILES (screaming): Yes!

  • Okay, Simone Biles,

  • I don't think you understand what a viral challenge is.

  • It's called a viral challenge, not a viral impossibility!

  • You do things with a handstand.

  • I mean, us normal people--

  • we struggle to take our pants off normally.

  • This is the pants-off challenge.

  • Oh. (groaning)

  • (thud, electronic squeal, glass breaking)

  • (cat mews)

  • Next up-- India is taking some unique strategies

  • to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus.

  • The government has forced ten tourists

  • from Israel, Mexico, Australia and Austria

  • who violated social distancing rules to write

  • "I did not follow the rules of lockdown so I am so sorry,"

  • 500 times. Yeah.

  • 500 times, they have to write it out, like Bart Simpson.

  • And in a less dramatic move, one Indian man built a vehicle

  • that looks like the virus to warn people to stay indoors.

  • So I guess if you ever wondered

  • what the opposite of an ice cream truck would be,

  • this is it. And I know this seems ridiculous,

  • but I think a corona car

  • driving around is a great idea.

  • Yeah, because it makes it seem physical.

  • Right now, people are like, "Aah, is corona real or not?"

  • If you see the car, you'll be like, "Yo, corona's in town."

  • It'll make people take it seriously.

  • In fact, after this car is done in India,

  • that car needs to drive around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

  • Yeah, then Trump will start to take it seriously.

  • He'll be looking out the window like,

  • "Oh, my God, the coronavirus-- it found me!

  • "It knows I was talking shit about it.

  • "I'm sorry, Corona.

  • You're not like the flu at all!"

  • And finally, one of the best things

  • we've seen during coronavirus is how people are still working

  • to keep their spirits up,

  • which is something we've all got to do.

  • And we've seen people throwing social distancing block parties.

  • Deejays are battling online.

  • And now, the latest trend is,

  • people have started dressing up to take out their trash.

  • In the strange new world of social distancing,

  • self-isolation and working from home,

  • people are finding new ways to entertain themselves

  • or just stay a little bit sane.

  • The previously mundane can suddenly be

  • the highlight of your day, like taking out the trash

  • by dressing to impress, whether it's as a unicorn--

  • this is my favorite.

  • Or if you really, really miss going to the beach.

  • Or if it is a wedding anniversary.

  • This is so much fun!

  • People are dressing up when they go out.

  • Dressing up like animals to take out the trash.

  • And just to come full circle,

  • the animals are gonna start dressing up like people

  • when they eat the trash.

  • Hakuna Matata. It's the circle of life.

  • I've been getting in on this, too.

  • I love this idea so much that what I've started doing

  • to spice things up is that, when I take out the trash,

  • I dress up like a mobster, and then, I tie

  • my trash bag up in three places so it looks like a dead body.

  • Yeah, and I know that seems dark,

  • but think of it this way. When my neighbors see me,

  • the last thing they're worried about is coronavirus.
