German government asks population to be ‘lazy as raccoons’ in coronavirus advert

A German advert has gained popularity after encouraging people to be 'lazy as raccoons' to halt the spread of Covid-19. The government advert sees an elderly man looking back at the year 2020, when he was 22 and wanting to “party, to study, to get to know new people”. “Fate had different plans for us,” an English translation of the video reads.
