By now you know that you’re supposed to wash your hands for 20 seconds to help fend off the coronavirus.
Instead of counting down in your head, you can, according to the guidelines, sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice.
I hate that song.
It’s a constant reminder of the ravages of time, and being subjected to it countless times a day is a human rights violation.
Enter 17-year-old college student William Gibson from Northamptonshire, UK, who decided to solve the problem with a website that shakes things up a little.
Per Mashable, here’s William with the inspiration behind the poster generator:
“I got the idea for the website when I saw someone make a lyric hand washing meme for ‘money machine’ by 100 gecs,” Gibson told Mashable. “I wanted to make posters like this for all my favourite songs and instead of copy and pasting lyrics into Photoshop I decided to create the site!”
We’re glad you did.
After Gibson posted a link to the website on Twitter, it quickly went viral.
