Watch Jimmy Kimmel's Fauci on a Couchi Elf on the Shelf Skit

Fauci on a Couchi Is the Hilarious Holiday Helper Enforcing CDC Guidelines

Is there anything Dr. Fauci can't do? First, he told our kids that Santa is immune to getting and spreading COVID-19, then he personally delivered the COVID-19 vaccine to Santa at the North Pole. Next he got the Moderna vaccine himself, and now, he's stopping by every house on the block to make sure all CDC guidelines are being followed. On Dec. 21, Jimmy Kimmel introduced the world to Fauci on a Couchi in a hilarious and very on-brand 2020 remix to the beloved Elf on the Shelf helper. Except unlike the smiley and spirited elf, Fauci is not messing around.

Sure, the Elf on the Shelf might get caught with his face in the Nutella jar or enjoying some relaxing yoga poses, but Fauci on a Couchi is all business — for good reason! He won't let you leave the house without a mask, reminds you to sneeze into your elbow, and sings "Happy Birthday" (twice!) to make sure you wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. But don't let Fauci hear you spreading misinformation or it'll be "CD-See ya later!"
