Face masks are becoming a part of our everyday wardrobe.
Etsy seller ShiftShirtsCo is now selling a $US13 face mask that says “Ew, David.” According to the product description, it’s made out of cotton and poly with two layers for protection.
Fans of “Schitt’s Creek” will know that the popular catchphrase was favoured by the character Alexis Rose, who was played by Annie Murphy. According to an interview Murphy did with Variety in April, Alexis actually only said the exact phrase “Ew, David” two or three times on the show.
When asked why she started saying “David” in the tone that she did, Murphy responded: “I don’t really have like an exact moment when I was like, ‘I’m just gonna milk this for all it’s worth!’ But it clearly happened, and I had such a fun time saying it.”
“The writers and Dan didn’t stop me when I would just start littering them in every now and again,” she added. “Someone just recently said that I’ve only ever said, “Ew, David!” twice or three times. So it’s interesting that people have run with it.”
In April, the CDC recommended “wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social-distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”
The government agency also said it was OK to wear cloth face coverings made from household items.
But if making your own mask at home seems daunting, or you just feel like wearing something more fun, the “Ew, David” face mask will definitely be a conversation starter.
