While Anthony Fauci is mocked and jeered at Republican rallies, his Malaysian counterpart is being hailed as a literal superhero. Noor Hisham Abdullah, Malaysia’s director general of health, is involved in an unorthodox approach to public health campaigning. In a new PSA, he appears in animated form, endowed with common sense medical advice to fight the coronavirus.
The PSA is the result of a partnership between the country’s Ministry of Health and Animonsta Studios (a.k.a Monsta), the producers of the hit Malaysian animated series Boboiboy. In the video, the young heroes of that show fight a cluster of grinning viruses. When their weapons prove inadequate, Noor Hisham appears, cleans his hands with sanitizer, and proceeds to obliterate the viruses with a blast of blue light.
