Mike DeWine and Amy Acton as ‘Laverne & Shirley’

Northeast Ohio animator creates hilarious ‘Laverne & Shirley’ theme song for Mike DeWine’s coronavirus briefings

To be clear, there is nothing humorous about the pandemic, or the considerable human suffering that has resulted from it.

Nevertheless, we can find the light side in some of the pandemic’s peripheral aspects.

These would certainly include the foolish hoarding of toilet paper.

And, of course, the daily press conferences with public officials who previously had negligible footprints outside their immediate polities. How many Americans outside of the New York/New England area gave Andrew Cuomo much serious thought two months ago?


In the State of Ohio, we have daily press conferences from Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton, Director of the Ohio Department of Health . I’ve given them a mixed review on this blog; but there is no doubt that their intentions are sincere. They have a tough, unprecedented task before them.

Anyway, on with the video.

Dave Stofka of Stofka Creative has created the following theme song video for these daily briefings, based on the opening credits of the old Laverne & Shirley sitcom of the 1970s/1980s:

This is really, really good stuff, and gut-bustingly hilarious if you’re familiar with the situation in Ohio, Governor DeWine, and Dr. Amy Acton. 

Oh, and if you’re old enough to remember Laverne & Shirley, of course:

Stofka’s work is as good as anything I’ve seen on JibJab. I hope we see more creations from him in the future!
