Steve Martin: So he is easily recognized even with a mask

Steve Martin ensures that he is recognized in public despite his mask. The US comedian shows his funny trick on Twitter.

The mouth and nose protection, which has been part of everyday life for people all over the world since the corona pandemic, ensures more anonymity. A blessing for celebrities – they can be incognito in public. But US comedian Steve Martin (75, "If love were that easy") was apparently a thorn in the side and has now made fun of it.

On his official Twitter account, he wrote: "I always wear a mask when I go outside. But something worried and unsettled me. I've been thinking about the problem, tackling it and here is the solution." In the photo that Martin published he can be seen with mouth and nose protection and dark sunglasses. He also has a paper sign on his head. It reads "Steve Martin" with an arrow pointing down. In the first 24 hours, the tweet received almost half a million "likes".
