We know the importance of social distancing -- but actor Mel Brooks and his son Max demonstrate the importance of social distancing and somehow manage to make us laugh at the same time.

The elder Brooks remains on the other side of a glass door, while his 47-year-old son informs us about the importance of protecting his dad and an older generation of comedians like Dick VanDyke and Carl Reiner.

The lighthearted spot emphasizes the importance of everyone doing their part to prevent the spread of coronavirus by washing hands, avoiding crowds, and staying home when it's not necessary to go out. It's hashtagged #DontBeASpreader.

Thank you, Max, for not wiping out an entire generation of comedy legends!
