So apparently in China they've rolled out a series of PSA specials about how to avoid getting/transmitting the Coronavirus. Using Pony Life characters, because let's be honest, the world stopped making sense years ago.

And more!

I haven't found translations, but I really want to see what they say.

Presto change-o, the Google Translate app comes to the rescue! ....sort of.

Image
Makes sense!

Image
A very Twilight piece of advice.

Image
Translation gets a little wonky with that much text, but you get the idea.

But then...

Image

The translation constantly shifts around, especially while trying to hold a phone camera steady, but at least the others would settle on something intelligible.

Image

But I guess Rainbow Dash moves too fast to comprehend.

Oh, there were a few more:

Not really sure what this has to do with Covid-19, but good general advice.

:sillypony: The "A" is for "apple"!

Or... is it the scarlet letter...?

I'm going to laugh if it eventually comes out that Hasbro took down the original version of the video because the Mane Six saying "good as hell" made people upset.

Speaking of which, I put SigmasonicX's link in the OP.

My assumption is that they intended to start marketing this early this month, as seen by the upload dates of those two videos, but determined that doing so in light of the George Floyd protests would be in bad taste. Wizards of the Coast is another part of Hasbro that chose to delay a promotional event in light of the protests, albeit just by a day.

Here's a Q&A thread from Aleksandra "Alex" Vetter, art director for Pony Life. Lots of production questions are answered there, though I noticed she's specifically forbidden from saying how many episodes Hasbro ordered from Boulder Media.

I picked out a few highlights.

I've been having UPA in mind lately, even watching some of their cartoons, and I was very much wondering if the background influence in Pony Life was intentional. I guess the answer is yes, it is.

One of us will usually find download links and put them up in #ponyday on Discord within a few hours of a new episode. Check the pinned messages in that channel for easy access without having to dig through the chat history for them.
