Don't a spreader. Right, dad? Right. Go home! I'm going, I'm going. Go. Love you. Reporter: Tonight, max telling us he knows his message landed, seen my millions. We all have a role to play so let's do our part. When I shot that video, I couldn't go in the house. So that bit about me waving at him through the glass, that was real.

Dick Van Dyke. He's okay. As far as I know, this generation of comedic legends is okay. Thank you, max and Mel. You made us smile, which is so important in these times.
