An animation studio in B.C. has produced a lighthearted video reminding people to wash their hands during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Created by the artists at Yeti Farm Creative in Kelowna, the video is 51 seconds in length and features 18 brief clips, each featuring a hand-washing theme.

The studio says it “is helping to flatten the curve through an animation jam, where animators collaborated on a compilation of quirky and fun animations on how to wash your hands during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The clips vary greatly, but include a Lego figure getting smothered in hand sanitizer, a cow washing her hooves getting abducted by an alien spaceship and a saint washing his hands at a fountain before trying to cover up a hoard of toilet paper.

“It was a studio-led initiative to raise everyone’s spirits in a crazy time, and provide something fun for the staff to do while we are working from home,” said Ashley Ramsay, founder and CEO of Yeti Farms Creatives.

Ramsay is hopeful the video will spark other studios or businesses to step forward in the spirit of having fun.

Though short, Ramsay said the project took a few weeks.

Ramsay said the initiative was sparked by her husband and studio business partner, Todd, and that artists were “to submit a short animation sequence of something to do with washing your hands.”
