Did you watch Actor Paul Rudd’s new video? Well, the Hollywood star has come up with an entertaining video to encourage millennials in the US to wear face masks. With cases rapidly increasing every day, there are over 6.5 million positive cases and 194,071 deaths in the country now. It’s interesting to see ‘certified young person,’ 51-year-old star, dressed in a yellow hoodie with a NY baseball cap. With a skateboard in hand, he came with a message for the young people of the US.
The Video and Jokes
Paul begins the video by introducing himself as an actor and a certified young person. He goes ahead to say, “A few days ago I was talking on the iPhone with my homie Governor Cuomo, and he’s just going off about how we millennials need to wear masks because, get this; apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us.”
He further jokes in the video by saying that Mr. Cuomo asked him if he was 26. And that he asked him to help convey the message to the millennials. He further adds that wearing a mask is not so hard. People are dying, and we can prevent the spread of coronavirus by wearing masks. In the end, the clip shows Paul Rudd being part of the YouTube show “Hot Ones” with face masks on. They are seen having barbecue wings, and both of their masks are shown stained with the sauce.
A Massive Response
The video received a great response with 310,000 likes on YouTube as of Tuesday morning and almost 5 million on Twitter. People are also sharing this video on Twitter, including Paul’s friends like Mark Ruffalo, John Boyega, and Evans. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also tweeted the video. He added a message, “Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up.” He also thanked Paul for helping the nation by spreading this critical message. Young people need to know that they need to take precautions because they are not immune to it.
The video also features Billy Crystal and Rober De Niro. It is one of the latest videos for the campaign. It was produced in partnership with Rudd and Evans, and in coordination with Jane Rosenthal.
What if you don’t wear a Mask?
A fine of $50 has been introduced in New York City for the commuters who refuse to wear masks. Wearing masks is now compulsory while traveling in the subway, trains, and buses.
