The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health released the latest parody of 2020 hit “WAP,” this week in public service announcement, “Wear A mask Please.” The song was so impressive, that Cardi B herself weighed in to approve the message.
“The pie-in-the-sky hope for the video, all along, was like, ‘What if Cardi B retweeted it?’” Nick Moran, the associate director for audience engagement at the Bloomberg School, told The Baltimore Sun.
Not more than 10 hours after, the “WAP” hitmaker shared the video with her 15.6 million Twitter followers, captioning it with, “Sksksksk,” digital shorthand for laughter.
“At the very least, I hope that people who are wearing masks get a good laugh out of it because, you know, we’re living in kind of a bleak time,” Noah Johnson, a senior computer science major who featured in the video said while adding that, “I hope that people can see that there’s still fun to be had, and they’ll smile at the video.”
