Dad’s Cute LEGO Video Of Justin Trudeau’s COVID-19 Message Goes Viral

by | April 8, 2020

One creative dad from Winnipeg, Manitoba has made a video to pair with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s COVID-19 messaging featuring LEGO characters and props.

The video, which features Trudeau’s address to children alongside music and imagery, has since gone viral. Its creator, Tyler Walsh, says he was inspired to make it by time with his own family.

“I saw that video that the prime minister had done and I showed it to my kids at the time,” he told Global News. “That was about a couple of weeks ago, but at the same time, my boys Jack and Noah and I were actually working on another Lego project.” 

“It popped into my head that I’ve got all of this set up here — what if I combine these two videos and it might be kind of fun and cool and make kids want to watch it more.”

Justin Trudeau’s Response

The video has become so popular that the Prime Minister himself has seen it, and took to Twitter to respond.

“This is really great, Tyler,” he wrote. “I think my kids – and a whole lot of others – will get a kick out of this, all while hearing how they can help out too.” 

“Thanks for helping spread that message.”

Content For Kids In Face Of COVID-19

Walsh is not the only one to think to create content to help children through COVID-19. A number of major organizations have joined the fight to keep kids happy and informed amid school closures and quarantines.

While Nickelodeon has released a TV special to answer kids questions and help them cope, baby brand Hello Bello has taken to Instagram to launch a digital kids’ camp.
