“This Explains Chet”: The Internet Reacts To Rita Wilson Rapping “Hip Hop Hooray” While Under Quarantine

Source: Instagram

The actress and singer shared a video of herself rapping the Naughty By Nature classic on Sunday (March 22).

Tom Hanks has offered an update on how he and wife Rita Wilson are feeling better after being treated for coronavirus. But Prior to that, Wilson had already given a reassuring and hilarious update of her own via Instagram.

On Sunday afternoon, the actress and singer shared a video with the following caption: “Quarantine Stir Crazy. See it to believe it.” As she pretends to read Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Naughty by Nature‘s “Hip Hop Hooray” begins to play in the background. Wilson then starts to recite the lyrics before breaking out into the first verse of the track by Vinnie. The four-minute long video has received over a million views, with a number of people reacting to it on Instagram and Twitter.

“This explains Chet,” one Twitter user wrote in response to the viral video.

The update that Hanks offered fans came later that Sunday night when the actor shared the following on Twitter:

Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx
