Gru and the popular yellow Minions from the animated “Despicable Me” movie franchise are urging people to keep their distance to help fight the spread of the novel coronavirus in a new public service announcement.

Illumination, the animation studio behind “Despicable Me,” developed the announcement with the World Health Organization and the United Nations Foundation.

The announcement is voiced by actor Steve Carell as Gru and will be translated into multiple languages including Spanish, French, Portuguese and Arabic, among others.
