ALBANY, N.Y. (NewsNation Now) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and actor Paul Rudd teamed up in a satire PSA to get millennials to wear face masks.
In the PSA, Rudd stars as a “certified young person” and pretends to be 26. But his youthful demeanor came with a serious message at the end of the video encouraging younger people to wear a mask.
“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,” Rudd said. “Because, get this, apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us millennials.”
Rudd, 51, added that Cuomo actually thought he was much younger.
The video was posted to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s social media pages with the caption: “Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up:”
This video is the latest in the governor’s national “Mask Up” campaign. Other celebrities that have been featured include Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal.
