Videos released by the German government have praised the nation's couch potatoes as the country battles a second wave of coronavirus.
The first advert, entitled "#specialheroes – Together against corona", depicts an elderly man looking back on the winter of 2020.
"The fate of this country lay in our hands," he says. "So, we mustered all our courage and did what was expected of us, the only right thing.
"We did nothing. Absolutely nothing."
The federal government has said the comical videos are a clear message to the public that reducing contact with others is vital in preventing the further spread of the virus.
