Larry David pleads with 'the idiots out there' to 'stay in the house and watch TV'

Larry David has pleaded with people to stay at home and watch TV so they don’t end up ‘hurting old people like me’ amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star, 72, appeared in a video from the Governor of California’s office encouraging people to practice social distancing. 

Larry joked people were missing an opportunity to watch an abundance of TV if they did not remain indoors, with California under a stay at home order since March 19.

He said: ‘I basically want to address the idiots out there — and you know who you are. I don’t know what you’re doing. 

‘You’re going out, you’re socializing too close — it’s not good. You’re hurting old people like me.’

‘The problem is you’re passing up a fantastic opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to stay in the house, sit on the couch and watch TV. I don’t know how you’re passing that up. 

The Seinfeld co-creator jokingly added that nothing ever good comes from leaving the house anyway.

He said: ‘You know if you’ve seen my show nothing good ever happens going out of the house, you know that. 

‘It’s just trouble. It’s not a good place to be. Stay home and, you know, don’t see anyone.’

It comes after Larry and Seinfeld co-creator Jerry Seinfeld will reportedly make $100 million (£80.7million) each from their Netflix deal.

The streaming giant revealed late last year it had acquired the global rights to the popular sitcom Seinfeld from 2021.

Sources told The Wrap that Jerry and Larry were set to make $100 million to $125 million each from the deal.

Netflix signed a reported $500 million deal with Sony Pictures Television, which controls the distribution of the show, to secure the online streaming rights to all 180 episodes of Seinfeld.

Rival Hulu, a Disney subsidiary, has held the rights since 2015 but that deal will end in two years. Viacom Inc has bought the exclusive cable rights to Seinfeld.

The terms of the Sony deal involving Netflix and Viacom have not been disclosed.

Seinfeld, a show starring comedian Jerry Seinfeld playing a version of himself and often humorously described as a show about nothing, followed four self-absorbed friends in New York City.
