Jake Johnson, New Girl-star and voice of Peter B. Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is offering free words of encouragement to cooped-up kids.
Johnson made the offer on Instagram, writing, “Since the quarantine, a lot of parents have DM’d me saying they’ve been watching Spiderverse with their kids. A lot.” So Johnson is comporting himself in a manner befitting a superhero, offering to send voice messages to calm scared children, and perhaps also entertain some energetic hellions so their parents can enjoy a few — just a few — blissful moments of silence.
Interested adults can email their child’s name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Volume might be high, and Johnson apologized in advance if he doesn’t respond to everyone. He ended his post with the hashtag #stayhome, and you can check out his full message below.
The sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse doesn’t drop until 2022, so parents of Spidey-obsessed youths might want to take advantage of Jake Johnson’s offer. Among celebrities using their platform to make the world a better place, we rank this higher than everyone singing “Imagine”, and around the same as Gilbert Gottfried mocking everyone for singing “Imagine”.

Since the quarantine a lot of parents have DM’d me saying they’ve been watching Spiderverse with their kids. A lot. So, here’s my idea. If your child is home from school and wants a quick encouraging message from Peter B Peter, then send me an email with their name and I’ll try and send over a short voice note. If I don’t get to you, I apologize. #stayhome Email here if you wanna try this: email@example.com
