We know there's a lot to consume on the internet each day if you're lucky enough to be able to work from home during this global pandemic. Sure, there are the daily coronavirus briefings, but there are also distracting shows and videos that will help get us all realign, persevere, and get through this. To help you weed out the noise, GQ is curating the best videos of the day worth diving into.
Today, we've combed through the depths to find an Adam Sandler original song (his second in a week), some star-studded senior bingo, a glimpse into Tracy Morgan’s sex life, Naomi Campbell’s new YouTube show, a Quibi series that’s actually worth taking a quick bite of, and an agonizingly nostalgic TikTok. These are the best videos to watch today.
Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon Sing “Don’t Touch Grandma”
Self-isolation seems to have inspired Adam Sandler to bust out his guitar and start writing funny songs again. Last week, he video-called into The Tonight Show to sing a coronavirus anthem dedicated to the doctors and nurses fighting the virus. Last night, he sang a duet with Jimmy Fallon called “Don’t Touch Grandma.”
“I love my grandma so much / I know she loves me, too” Fallon sings. “But thanks to this stupid virus / there are some new grandma rules,” Sandler continues, as the pair trade lines for a short, charmingly acoustic song about learning “to play canasta from across the room.” It’s cute, and if nothing else, maybe this will inspire you to give your grandma a call, eh?—James Grebey, GQ contributor
Matthew McConaughey Hosts a Virtual Bingo Night for Seniors
If you’re tired of seeing Matthew McConaughey being so self-serious that it circles back around to parody in all those Lincoln commercials, might I suggest this short clip of the actor and his family going all-in while hosting a virtual bingo night for a senior community? McConaughey, along with his wife, kids, and mother, lent their talents to residents at Texas’s Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living for a bingo night via Zoom, and McConaughey seems genuinely excited when two players both have “I-24.”
“Our residents had a great time playing, and they loved talking with Matthew about his family heritage and his favorite drink,” a post on Enclave’s Facebook explains. That, simply, is exactly the kind of wholesome stuff we need right now.—J.G.
Tracy Morgan Says He’s Impregnated His Wife Three Times
In retrospect, The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb probably should’ve expected an answer like this from Tracy Morgan. This morning, the host asked the 30 Rock star how he was handling being self-isolated at home, and without missing a beat he offered television audiences a glimpse inside his bedroom.
“Me and my wife have been quarantined for, like, three weeks, so she’s pregnant three times. Every week she got pregnant,” Morgan responds. “We’re role-playing. She’s playing a young maiden whose grandfather was infected with coronavirus & I’m a scientist who discovered the cure.”
Honestly, not the worst way to keep quarantine interesting. (Bring back 30 Rock challenge.)—J.G.
A TikTok Gives Me Nostalgia in the Worst Way
As any Mad Men viewer knows, the original Greek word “nostalgia” meant “the pain from an old wound.” So it's fitting then that this viral TikTok video and ensuing viral tweet, originally made by user @salviaplath13, sent my group chat into a depressive spiral. Man, remember bars? Bars were great. I miss bars, but at least I can watch this TikTok and get a vivid picture of what once was.—J.G.
Naomi Campbell Pivots to Video
Have any of you been watching the Project Runway tethered that Amazon's parceling out weekly, Making the Cut? (It is insane, the budget seems astronomical, and the contestants seem mostly bad? I love it.) If so, you've caught actual icon Naomi Campbell reminding the world why she's so legendary, delivering withering critiques so cold you'll catch a chill watching from home. To double your dosage of Campbell, she's now doing daily YouTube live streams with an array of famous guests—yesterday's (the first) featured Cindi Crawford—that will light up your life. Whenever this crisis is behind us, please, TV execs, pay any amount of money this woman asks for and give her a new show!—Brennan Carley, associate editor
Sasha Velour, Queen of Quibi
RuPaul's Drag Race winner Sasha Velour has released one of Quibi's most essential shows, NightGowns, a short-form (as all Quibi programs are) docuseries about the Brooklyn queen's drag revue show that plays monthly in New York City. NightGowns is a feast for the eyes and a blanket for the heart; Velour is one of the most inclusive, engaging winners to leave Drag Race; her platform is immense, and she uses it only for good. NightGowns is about Velour, sure, but it's equally about the other performers and behind-the-scenes ingenues who keep the show afloat month after month. This one's worth the 90-day trial alone.—B.C.
