Elton John has taken part in a very funny, yet serious videofor England's National Health Service in which he urges everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
While pretending to audition for the commercial, he says, “The more people in society who get vaccinated, the more chance there is of eradicating the national COVID pandemic. It’s really important to know that the vaccines have all been through and met the necessary safety and quality standards.”
And, since it's an "audition," you hear the director telling Elton to act like he's getting the vaccine, which leads him to start singing his 1983 hit, "I’m Still Standing."
Unimpressed with Elton's acting skills, the director says, "We'll let you know," to which Elton mutters, "Well, on this short notice, you won't find anyone bigger."
The video then cuts to legendary English Michael Caine who is seen getting the vaccination and then saying "it didn't hurt."
