Lawyer Daniel Uhfleder who gained national attention with his advocacy against privatizing Florida beaches is now working to keep those same beaches closed during the coronavirus pandemic – by wearing a Grim Reaper costume and warning beachgoers about the necessity of social distancing.
“I felt like something needed to be done, because they are moving very quickly to open beaches prematurely,” Daniel Uhlfelder, a Santa Rosa Beach-based lawyer, told NBC News. “Wearing a Grim Reaper costume seems like a good way to send a signal that this is too fast and that we need to think seriously before we take that step.”
Meanwhile, The Swim Reaper who David Uhlfelder was almost certainly inspired by has had huge positive effects in New Zealand. The confrontational Swim Reaper campaign that was launched in December 2016 used dark humor to make people aware of the danger they’re in near the water. Featured below are the best photos from that campaign.
