Gal Gadot and celebrity friends mocked over cringey 'Imagine' cover
Take a handful of famous people, the world's most inspirational song, and a video uploaded on a social media platform, and you've got all the key ingredients of a successful viral video. Sadly, instead Gal Gadot and her famous friends are being ridiculed on social media for their cringe-worthy cover of John Lennon's Imagine.
The Wonder Woman star enlisted friends including Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Fallon, James Marsden, Amy Adams, Zoe Kravitz, Norah Jones, Mark Ruffalo, Natalie Portman, Lynda Carter, Cara Delevinge and more to sing a line form the song for her Instagram.
“You know this virus has affected the entire world, everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from. We’re all in this together."

Meanwhile, shortly after the release of this video, the Twitterverse collectively had a meltdown, including John Mayer.

Lets just say the idea of rich celebrities preaching the virtues of staying at home and imagining a better post-Covid-19 pandemic world from the safety of their mansions comes across as a bit tone deaf.
While the intent behind this was well meaning, it wasn't quite as healing as intended.
