Actress Gal Gadot’s latest sing-along video has viewers branding it “cringe-worthy.”
The video features numerous celebrities singing to John Lennon’s Imagine to boost morale during the coronavirus pandemic. Gadot assembled Hollywood celebrities including Natalie Portman, Amy Adams and Will Ferrell, who sung lines from the famous track.
However, reception to the video wasn’t as expected, and thousands agreed that the concept was “cringy.”
“Just saw the Gal Gadot Imagine video, and I think it maybe ruined music for me,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Honey, look at all the rich people singing Imagine. Everything will be alright now, even though we both lost our jobs. This was so much better than money and not cringy at all,” another user commented.
Aside from the video, Daily Dot reported that Gadot has been posting submissions of people singing Imagine to her Instagram Story. One of them includes a clip of actress Millie Bobby Brown, though Brown’s version wasn’t actually from this year.
Twitter user @filmcupid, known as Tris, told Daily Dot that she sent the video to Gadot as a joke, but she did not expect the actress to post it to her story.
According to the user, Brown’s video was a well-known meme from over a year ago, and that she sent it to Gadot thinking that it would not be noticed by the actress. Internet users were amused at the feature, and even suggested that Brown should have been included in the star-studded video.
