As some people raid their shelves and stock up on supplies over fear of contracting COVID-19, others are taking a lighter approach to the topic.

Al Reid is one of those people.

Reid is the manager and “vice president in charge of stupid videos” with The Underground, a pizza shop at Big White Ski Resort.

This morning, the pizza place posted a video depicting a mask-wearing pizza man taking a swig from a Corona, before coughing, snorting and stumbling and grabbing onto a toilet paper package.

“Our official tag line is Stupid Videos, Great Pizza,” he said. “We enjoyed making it last night. It took about seven beers to get into character and then we were ready.”

He said the inspiration for the video came from Facebook when he saw a story about empty shelves in Vancouver due to coronavirus fears.

“There’s so much misinformation,” he said.

The intention with the video was to make people laugh, and with the coronavirus, he thought the video is a good way to poke fun at “the real world.”

“I clearly don’t live in the real world because I live at a beautiful ski resort,” Reid said.
