Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Adam Jensen Says “Stay The F*** Home” During The Coronavirus
If Adam Jensen says stay inside because of the Coronavirus, you stay inside
Despite warnings from health officials, authority figures and even the government itself, people are still going about like it’s a regular day. At times, it feels like a majority of people won’t act until this pandemic is at its very worst. Who can we turn to now, in this time of need, to tell these people to change their ways? As it turns out, Adam Jensen is already on the Coronavirus case.
Ok, fine, Adam Jensen is a fictional character, and the Coronavirus didn’t exist in his world. Yes, I know. That doesn’t mean that what he, or rather his voice actor, says shouldn’t be taken seriously though. Elias Toufexis, the voice of the cyborg protagonist of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, isn’t joking around. In a video he posted on Twitter, he dons the grizzled voice of Adam Jensen once again to tell some folks what they need to hear about the Coronavirus.

See, doesn’t he have a point? I know the video wasn’t that well animated – it looks like something out of South Park – but the message is pretty clear. All of you going to parks? Stay inside. Thinking of going to the beach? Instead, think of not doing that. We’re in far too precarious a position right now to risk spreading a potentially deadly virus just because someone “needed some sun.” So do yourself and everyone around you a favor, listen to the gravelly voice of Adam Jensen. Stay inside. And while you’re at it, check out the CDC’s site on the Coronavirus, it’s full of useful tips for keeping you and those around you safe during these dangerous times.
In the meantime, we at DualShockers have found our hobby to be one of the best places to find some moments of peace. Sure, everything outside is pretty bad; some new events get canceled every day, the Nintendo Store in New York City is closed, nothing’s like it was before. Now more than ever it’s a good time to embrace games.
