Kids and teachers have been through a lot since COVID-19 started. Now, as Canada is in the midst of an Omicron wave, a few famous faces are helping out by brightening up online classrooms.

On January 5, Gerry Dee – the comedic star of Mr. D and the host of Family Feud Canada – posted a call out to his Twitter.


DM me a ZOOM link and a time TODAY & TOMORROW you have a remote class happening & I will jump on and chat to your students. Gives you a little break!

Will get to as many as I can.

I won’t tell you ahead of time so just let me in if you see me waiting. DM’s open!

Thanks to all the teachers and students who let me visit their on-line classes yesterday & today. It was such a pleasure to meet as many of you as I did. Stay safe everyone.

He invited teachers to DM him a remote class link and he promised to jump on to give the teachers a break.

“Thanks to all the teachers and students who let me visit their on-line classes,” he wrote in a follow-up. “It was such a pleasure to meet as many of you as I did.”

Then, inspired by Gerry Dee, Hal Johnson – from BodyBreak – tweeted out the same offer to teachers and kids.

TEACHERS hi it’s Hal

DM me your virtual link and a time Tuesday or Wednesday that you have a remote class & I will jump on and give you and the kids a Bodybreak!

Teachers who want to get a BodyBreak for their online classes can DM the Canadian star.

Elder Millenials might remember the 90-second long BodyBreak segments featuring Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod that used to play on Canadian television in the 90s’.

The BodyBreak callout has gotten a big response so far on social media with teachers eager to invite the stars to their classes.

This is unreal. Coolest thing I’ve seen in 2022!

DM’d you. Not sure who would enjoy this more… my students or ME (80s child and big fan of your body breaks)!

For the teachers, a BodyBreak might be nostalgia overload, and hopefully, the kids can learn the importance of keeping fit and having fun while they’re at it.
