Paul Rudd, who famously never ages, has been tipped to appear in a PSA to millennials to wear their masks as the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the world.
In collaboration with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Rudd plays a “26-year-old” Certified Young Person and basically spews slang for two minutes. It is certainly an experience.
Some gems include “you and your dank squad”, “yaaas queens like yourselves”, “we’ve gotta yeet this virus” and Rudd telling “Billie Eilish” on a phone call that he wants to “stan” her and that she’s “so my bae.”
Oh, not to mention: “Fam, lets real talk. Masks? They’re totally beast, so let’s slide that into your DMs and Twitch it.”
There’s also a brilliant reference to his endlessly meme-d appearance on Hot Ones.
Rudd breaks character in the final moments of the PSA, exasperatedly begging young people to wear their masks because it’s science and he shouldn’t have to make it fun because of hundreds of thousands of people are dying. Truth.
Watch the PSA below.
