Moscow Metro Makes Masks Glamorous Again

As Russia recently reinstated a national mask mandate and the nation battles a record-breaking second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the Moscow Metro decided to get creative with its public health advert urging Muscovites to protect themselves and follow public health regulations.

The video, showing two dancers on a metro car in both masks and gloves, is a fun take on what is actually a very serious issue.
