Dozens—perhaps even hundreds—of children in self-isolation are set to receive messages of comfort from none other than Spider-Man himself.

That’s because Jake Johnson, the voice actor who played Peter Parker in the recent superhero film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has offered to record personalized voice messages for kids who may be having a hard time coping with the novel coronavirus quarantines.

Earlier this week, Johnson published an Instagram post saying: “Since the quarantine, a lot of parents have DM’d me saying they’ve been watching Spiderverse with their kids. A lot.

“So, here’s my idea. If your child is home from school and wants a quick encouraging message from Peter B. Peter, then send me an email with their name and I’ll try and send over a short voice note.”

Since demand for the messages is likely to be high, Johnson apologized in advance for any emails he might fail to respond to—but he still hopes his post will encourage families and kids to stay home during the COVID-19 shutdowns.

Johnson—who has also starred in the television comedy series New Girl and Jurassic World—says that parents can request a comforting voice message from Spider-Man by emailing their child’s name to [email protected]
