Paul Rudd encourages young people to wear masks
The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has enlisted the help of Hollywood superstar Paul Rudd.
He shared a video of the actor dressed up as a, 'certified young person,' encouraging the youth to wear face masks.
Cuomo captioned the video, 'Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up.'
In the video, the actor is wearing a mustard coloured hoodie and a hat that reads, 'NY.'
He addresses the camera, "Yo, what up dudes, Paul Rudd here. Actor and certified young person."
He continued, "A few days ago I was talking on the iPhone with my homie Governor Cuomo."
"And he's just going off about how us millennials need to wear masks because, get this, apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us millennials."
"So Cuoms asked me, he's like, 'Paul, you gotta help! What are you, like 26?' And I didn't correct him."
Later in the video, he says, "I'm not gonna preach at you like some celebrity."
"This is a convo where I talk and you shut up and wear your mask."
Next, he pretends to get a phone call from Billie Eilish telling him she's wearing her mask.

He responds, "I wanna stan you! You're so my bae!"
At the end of the video, Paul breaks character and says, "It's not hard."
"People are dying, hundreds of thousands of people are dying. It's preventable."
