Gal Gadot Has Finally Spoken Out About That God-Awful Celebrity ‘Imagine’ Cover
Horrendous.

I still get nightmares about this cover…

March 2020 was a scary time for the world. An unknown virus was tearing through the world, and quickly causing countries to shut their borders and lock the hell down. It’s a month that none of us will ever forget, and although the world basically went to seven types of shit in that godforsaken month, Gal Gadot’s celebrity cover of ‘Imagine’ is right up there as one of the scariest things that went down in that period.

For a bit of backstory; when Gal and her celeb pals had been taken out of their glamorous lives and forced to basically live like the rest of us, they thought a horrendous rendition of a John Lennon classic would make everything better (spoiler alert: it made things much, much worse).

Kristen Wiig, Sia, Will Ferrel, Gadot and countless more; basically every A-lister you could think of joined in on the fun, each singing a small snippet of ‘Imagine’ before their peer would continue it on. It sounds fine in theory, but edit all of those out of tune, pitchy and straight up cringeworthy snippets together, and you’ve got a total crime against humanity.

The world agreed, and backslash ensued by the thousands. Understandably, the celebs involved stayed pretty quiet about it, that is until now, with Gadot admitting that it was in “poor taste” in a recent interview, adding “the video was premature. It wasn’t the right timing, and it wasn’t the right thing. It was in poor taste. All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the bull’s-eye, right?”

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that last statement is the biggest understatement of 2022. Now, you’re probably a bit traumatised by that rendition, so we’ve also linked Josh Wolf’s parody of it below, which calls out the absolute self-indulgence of these celebs who dared to spit on John Lennon’s grave. Check it below.
