Paul Rudd directed a comic skit aimed at millennials to get them to wear masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
The public service announcement (PSA), sponsored by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, used pop culture references and jargon aimed at a younger audience to get the point across.
Rudd, 51, wore a hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants and accessorized with a pair of neck caps and a side-tipped hat. He also carried a skateboard.

Then he got serious and exclaimed: “Just wear a mask. It’s simple, please. It is not difficult. People are dying! Hundreds of thousands of people are dying and it is preventable. “
“I shouldn’t have made it fun. It’s science!” said the comedy actor PSA.
