Street artist Banksy has posted once again about what he's been up to during the coronavirus pandemic -- and this time, he says wear a mask.
In a video on his Instagram, the reclusive artist filmed himself dressed as a cleaner spraying graffiti on the London Underground.
The caption in the post reads, "If you don't mask - you don't get."
In the clip, Banksy paints rats -- one sneezing, another using a mask as a parachute and yet another holding a bottle of sanitizer -- before tagging the train with his moniker.
The video ends with music from the 1997 hit "Tubthumping" by British rock band Chumbawamba. The opening lyrics -- "I get knocked down, but I get up again" -- play as the Tube doors close.
Banksy spray-painted, "I get lockdown, but I get up again" in the station and inside the train's doors.
This isn't the first time the British artist has posted about coronavirus.
In April, Banksy posted a photo of his work-from-home life, with drawings of rats scampering around his bathroom.
In May, Banksy unveiled an artwork titled "Game Changer," featuring a child playing with a nurse doll wearing a mask and cape, to honor health care workers.
