Governor Cuomo added the caption: "Robert De Niro is watching you".

Celebrated actor and writer Danny DeVito begged New Yorkers "from the bottom of my heart" to stay home amid the growing health concerns during the global pandemic.

Robert De Niro, who was born in New York's Greenwich Village, said: "We all need to stay home".

"Watch a little TV, why don't you?" he cheekily added.

In the video Robert De Niro channeled his character from the 2000 movie Meet the Parents. "All we're trying to do is slow the spread, but it will spread".

Other celebrities who participated in the campaign include Danny DeVito, Ben Stiller and La La Anthony.

The PSA series comes days after Cuomo issued an executive order on March 22 urging New Yorkers to stay at home, effectively shuttering all non-essential businesses.

Another clip stars Stiller himself, although his bit is that he's staying home to take on a new, albeit unusual, hobby. The video was part of a series released by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office in its ongoing effort to stop the rapidly spreading virus from doing more damage.

The virus had infected thousands of people in NY, with governor Cuomo repeatedly urging the citizens to stay home to reduce the burden on nation's health system. I mean, we got this virus, this pandemic and young people can get it.

"I'm asking you from the bottom of my heart all over the state of NY to say home", Danny shares in a video from ABC News. "Not just to protect ourselves but to protect others and all the older people you love".

"I swear to God if one of you kills Danny DeVito", Twitter user @ByChrisMason captioned the coronavirus video.
