Mariah Carey’s ‘Fantasy’: Clean Hands to Avoid Coronavirus

Watch her special instructional video

March 13, 2020

Coronavirus has up-ended much of the world, with new cases of COVID-19 being reported daily. On Friday, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency because of the illness, and people are changing their routines to help slow the spread of the disease.

As health agencies urge people to wash their hands with soapy water often, for at least twenty seconds at a time to lower their risk of infection, celebrities are jumping on the bandwagon and encouraging their fans on social media to wash their hands.

First we had disco queen Gloria Gaynor repurposing her classic breakup anthem “I Will Survive” while she washed her hands, and now pop diva Mariah Carey is doing the same.

The “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer posted a 30-second video on TikTok where, along with her two children, she washed her hands to the rhythm of her remix of "Fantasy" with Ol' Dirty Bastard.

If Mimi’s fantasy is that all of her fans practice good hygiene, we can’t imagine her legions of lambs will be opposed to singing along to one of her hits as they suds up.

Pro tip from the 34-time GRAMMY nominee: set a timer on your phone so can you make sure you hit the 20 second mark.
