Paul Rudd has flaunted his millennial credentials in a jokey public service announcement (PSA) urging young Americans to wear face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fresh-faced 51-year-old played on his youthful looks for the new ad, created for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s national Mask Up America campaign.
In the ad, the Ant-Man star states he is a “certified young person” while holding a skateboard, wearing Beats headphones and a baseball cap.
“I’m not going to preach at you, like some celebrity. This is a convo where I talk, and you shut up and wear your mask,” he says, before launching into a ham-fisted attempt to talk in youth slang.
“Masks protect you and your dank squad because caring about other people is the new not caring about other people,” Rudd jokes, before referencing, TikTok videos and social media challenges – filming his own “stop the pandemic” and “save grandma” challenges.
