Pfiz­er taps Pink, Michael Phelps and oth­er celebri­ties in lat­est Covid cam­paign

First, it was Martha Stew­art. Now, four more celebri­ties who are at high risk for de­vel­op­ing se­vere Covid-19 symp­toms are get­ting in on Pfiz­er’s Covid-re­lat­ed ad cam­paigns in the new year.

The ad, ti­tled “A Whole Dif­fer­ent Ball Game,” urges view­ers to know their risk fac­tors, make a plan and if they test pos­i­tive, seek an oral treat­ment.

“If this were the re­al Covid-19, I would be in re­al trou­ble be­cause I have asth­ma,” singer-song­writer Pink says as she holds a red spiky ball made to look like the nov­el coro­n­avirus. “And I have de­pres­sion,” re­tired Olympic swim­mer Michael Phelps says as he catch­es and toss­es the ball.
