Paul Rudd carried out a comic move aimed at millennia to make them wear masks in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Public Service Announcement (PSA), sponsored by the New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, used pop culture references and lingo aimed at a younger audience to get the point across.
Rudd, 51, was wearing a hoodie and sweatpants and was wearing accessories with a pair of headphones around her neck and a hat tipped to the side. He also wore a skateboard.

The “Ant Man” star introduced himself as an “actor and certified young person.”
“Fam, let’s really talk. Masks, they’s totally beasts,” Rudd began.
He then revealed that on an iPhone he was recently chatting with his “homie” government Cuomo. “And he’s just figuring out how we millennials need to wear masks because – get this – apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us millennia,” the actor said.
CORONAVIRUS: WHAT TO KNOW
“So Cuomz asked me, and he’s like, ‘Paul, you have to help. What are you, like, 26?’ And I did not correct him, “said Rudd.
The “Clueless” actor continued: “We want to go to bars, we want to drink, join in, do our TikToks. I get it. I do not want to preach to you like some celebrity. Ugh. This is a convoy where I speak “Shut up. Wear your mask.”
Rudd then made a scornful TikTok video. “Do you want a challenge?” he said regarding viral dance challenges in the app. How about stopping the pandemic? What about that? How about the rescue of Grandma’s challenge. ”
Then he became serious and exclaimed, “Just wear a mask. It’s simple, please. It is not hard. People are dying! Hundreds of thousands of people are dying and it can be prevented. ”
“I should not have to make it fun. It’s science!” said the actor about the comic PSA.

Rudd ended the video by saying, “We need this virus, aight.” In slang, yeet means to throw something away at high speed.
Cuomo has featured several high-profile celebrities in coronavirus-related PSAs, including Robert De Niro, Chris Rock and Ben Stiller.
