We all deal with the isolation and anxiety of social distancing and quarantine in different ways, but this new witty challenge can definitely give everybody a direly needed boost of endorphin.
The idea of coming up with hilarious photo recreations of old masterpieces can be traced back at least as far as March 22, when the @covidclassics Instagram account was created.
