Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up: pic.twitter.com/GTks5NUBmR— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) September 14, 2020
Let's play two truths and a lie: Paul Rudd is totally 26, he's totally up with the Millennial lingo, and he's totally serious about wearing a mask. Did you guess it? Sorry to report that although Paul looks like he never ages, he's actually a fresh and fine 51-year-old — but he is ready to appeal to his "fellow 20-somethings" in the best way he knows how.
On Monday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shared a Twitter video of Paul — a certified young person — asking people to wear a mask. "Because, get this, apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us Millennials," he said. From TikTok dances to a faux phone call with Billie Eilish, Paul tries his best to appeal to his "peers" in their own language.
But, when it comes down to it, wearing a mask is easy and simple, and Paul's final rant puts it all in perspective: "It's not hard! People are dying . . . and it's preventable. Just wear a mask, I shouldn't have to make it fun. It's science!" You heard the (young) man — wear the damn mask. Enjoy the full video above, and stay tuned in 'til the end to see a special nod to his forever meme-able Hot Ones clip from last year.
