The meme that imagines how the ‘No Tears Left to Cry’ songstress washes her hands in her long-sleeve pullover is used as a reminder for people to ensure personal hygiene to prevent the spread of the illness.
Ariana Grande has found herself being linked to a tip on how to stop the spreading of coronavirus. Reminding people to wash their hands to avoid catching the disease, Paper magazine has shared an old meme about how the former Nickeloden star washes her hands.
The video, which first surfaced in 2019, shows a girl wearing a gray sweatshirt with long, oversized sleeves, the style that has become the “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” hitmaker’s favorite, washing her hands. As she puts her hands under the water, the sleeves of the hoodie get wet instead.
Paper magazined captioned the video, “Using this iconic video as a friendly reminder to wash! your! f***ing! Hands!”
It didn’t take long for Ariana to catch the wind of this hilarious meme. Responding to the joke, she wrote, “hate u all.”
This is not the first time the 26-year-old singer/actress reacted to the video. Back in November 2019, she wrote in reply to a post about it, “man if y’all don’t leave me alone.” She added, “this made me so anxious.”
The washing-hands video was one among a bunch of memes shared by Ariana’s fans last year when, they made fun of her love for long-sleeve hoodie. Other videos show people using their sleeved hands to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and performing other daily tasks.
The washing-hands video is aptly used to bring awareness to people about how to reduce the risk of catching coronavirus amid growing concern on the ongoing epidemic. With proper hygiene practices, including washing their hands with the right technique, people can prevent the spread of the illness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people wet their hands with clean, running water, warm or cold, and soap their hands thoroughly. The agency encourages people to lather between the fingers, as well as under the nails and on the backs of hands for a deep clean.
