Mister H. I.’s new method for coronavirus protection – SAFTI Method
The Anytime Show premiered on April 17, 2020 exclusively on Hollywood Insider’s YouTube channel. From his animated studio on Hollywood Insider’s backlot, Mr. Hi brings all things Hollywood right to your screen. Adorned with various entertainment trophies (Oscar, BAFTA, SAG, Golden Globes, Grammy, Emmys) and accolades lining his shelf, The Anytime Show set is visually appealing with vertical oak shiplap walls accompanied by Mr. Hi’s personalized director’s chair. A visual spectacle with a captivating host guiding his audience on a tour of current events? What more can a quarantined, socially distanced audience ask for in a time when we are feeling an insatiable need for meaningful entertainment?
The Anytime Show’s pilot episode saw Mr. Hi coin a new acronym as a method for practicing “SAFTI” during the current global pandemic. Discussing not-so-smart individuals who found it somehow appropriate to gather in large groups despite the crucial social distancing guidelines, Mr. Hi recommended the remedy of deciding to “Stay Away From Those Idiots.” Truth hurts, doesn’t it? It’s no argument that people who chose to flout the social distancing rules will only perpetuate the length of the quarantine and promote the spread of COVID-19. It’s both sad and funny that a talking animated lion hosting a talk show knows better than a massive number of humans. Touché, Mr Hi.
Aside from his purrfect poise and sharp sense of style, Mr. Hi is not too highbrow to overlook the phenomenon known collectively on the internet as the “Poop Challenge” on his pilot episode. Let’s face it, is there anything more comical/disturbing than to watch a child scream bloody murder while thinking she’s sporting a wristband of fresh mom poop? Mr. Hi dubbed the blonde banshee, “Baby Meryl Streep.” Talk about a compliment! I’ll rock a chocolate skidmark sleeve to earn such complimentary comparisons. Every viewer sighed a collective relief when the mother revealed the smear was nothing more than a chocolate-dipped prank. The banshee-turned-hyena embracing her place as the butt of the joke with a million-dollar smile and a gleam of revenge in her eyes. Watch out mom, you may have the last laugh now… just wait until your darling offspring is stranded on the toilet when you truly run out of toilet paper during the great TP shortage of 2020. Your move, Baby Meryl.

Mister H. I. thanks COVID-19 workers
Just like the recent Global Citizen and Lady Gaga’s ‘One World: Together At Home’ concert, Mr. Hi thanks all the essential workers who are on the frontlines of the battle to defeat COVID-19. He hinted that these soldiers such as doctors, nurses, grocery store workers, etc,, should be celebrated as he says, “Can you imagine all the new line of Marvel superheroes inspired by all of them? Marvel, are you listening?”. Then he proceeds to join his paws to clap for all the ‘heathcare workers in hospitals all over the world’. Clearly Mr. Hi does not believe in man-made political borders and he believes the world is one and our home.

Mister H. I. asking Morgan Freeman to narrate Earth Season 2020
Perhaps the funniest hit the nail on the head moment during the pilot episode was listening to Mr. Hi contemplate why this unfathomable pandemic isn’t being directed by a famous director. Watching him flip through his metaphorical mental rolodex, we see him explain various directors taking over this life imitating art story. Mr. Hi growls that Quentin Tarantino directing “Earth Season 2020” would end up alright after a lot of blood. M. Night Shyamalan directing would mean “it’s about to get really creepy in here.” James Cameron at the helm and Mr. Hi concludes only ‘one person would fit on the door, wink wink Leonardo DiCaprio’.
Thank goodness we have our trusted, eccentric host to suggest the only person perfect for the job – Morgan Freeman! Of course, why didn’t we think of that? Oh, what would we have done without you, Mr. Hi! Morgan Freeman is God, isn’t he? After all, isn’t he the God who told Bruce (portrayed by Jim Carrey), “No matter how filthy something gets, you can always clean it right up,” in 2003’s Bruce Almighty? That sentiment is very apropos considering our world’s current predicament. One of the biggest takeaways from this episode was the beautiful THANK YOU Mr. Hi bellowed for the brave superheroes known as healthcare workers who are battling COVID-19 for the sake of humanity, risking their own lives in the process. Be sure to thank and support every soldier on the frontlines, we owe them our lives! They deserve more compensation for their selfless humanitarianism.
