Mick Jagger is featured in a charming PSA, courtesy of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which illustrates how to be productive during the coronavirus-imposed quarantine. The video, which aired yesterday on the late-night show, was created on behalf of Save The Children. The Rolling Stones frontman tweeted the clip, along with a link to donate, this morning.
“In times of international crisis, every man, woman and child must pull their weight”, introduces the narrator for the fictional “Global News” clip. The video, which is made to look like a mid-century newsreel, encourages the rock icon to garden, exercise, tend to animals and cook, among other activities, while in quarantine.
An end card promotes the global charity Save The Children – donations to which will support distance learning, help children in unsafe households and protect and prepare doctors and clinics in refugee camps, amid the coronavirus.
Jagger and the Stones have been active during the pandemic, taking part in a variety of projects. Last month, they performed for the eight-hour One World: Together At Home live-stream, which raised nearly $128 million for COVID-19 aid. The Stones joined a lineup that spanned multiple generations and genres, including Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Common, Jessie Reyez, Elton John and Lady Gaga, who served as creative director.
On Sunday, the Stones premiered their new weekly series, Extra Licks, available on their YouTube channel. The series offers rare performance clips and more – all available digitally for the very first time.
The tireless group also released a brand new single, ‘Living In A Ghost Town’, recorded remotely while all members have been in isolation. The video premiered exclusively on YouTube and has had more than five million views to-date. The song also stands as the Stones’ first-ever No.1 single on iTunes.
