A NOTE FROM US AT about Melissa Papel

Recently, we’ve given you tips for dealing with the confinement during the COVID-19 Crisis, now we are bringing you a few minutes of good laughs during the #StayAtHomeOrders.
Surfing on the internet — remember, we should not do it in the ocean yet — we found this video, enterely created by Melissa Papel.

We’ve candidly enjoyed it so much, we hope you will, too.

We might have accepted the fact that we are living a very serious pandemic, which forces us to stay at home for an undetermined period of time, confined with our loved ones and our pets, rocking our pajamas like a daily uniform. Yes, we have accepted that bitter truth, indeed.

But have you ever felt like there was something a tad odd about partying with your friends online and raising your champagne glass to a screen? Does something always feel off, or unnatural, during those video chats? It’s a bit hard to replace ‘the real thing,’ isn’t it?

I have observed the different categories of individuals that emerged from those virtual parties, and summarized them into this little comedy sketch!
