Look, it's not easy to get the chuckles during a global pandemic, but trust Fran Drescher to defy the odds and deliver everyone a good laugh, albeit unintentionally.

The actor and producer took to social media this morning to share a "public service announcement" with her more than 200,000 followers, she just forgot to attach the video file properly - tweeting simply 'IMG_1612.mov'.

The move, which has big mum-discovering-social-media energy, has left fans of The Nanny star basking in her unrivalled leadership and bravery.

"A wise and sobering reminder for our time," Charlotte Clymer, writer and Human Rights Campaign worker, tweeted in response.

"She said what had to be said," another added.

"Thanks for being so brave," tweeted one tongue-in-cheek follower.

The cryptic message echoed an old tweet from US sports presenter and personality Stephen A. Smith, who in 2015 shared with his followers: "Take a look, y'all: IMG_4346.jpeg".

Needless to say, in these uncertain times, we stand with Fran(d).
