I don’t know why Paul Rudd doesn’t age, but I’m okay with that. And now the 51-year-old actor is using his ageless-ness to promote mask-wearing. Rudd is starring in a new public service announcement playing a 26-year-old Millenial and telling American to be a “bae” and wear a mask.

Rudd filmed the video at the urging of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as part of the “Mask Up, America” campaign. In the video, which has gone viral, Rudd wears a yellow hoodie, carries a skateboard, and uses the slang of people I’m pretty sure are younger than Millenials. It’s okay, Rudd is still charming.

“I was talking on the iPhone with my homie, Gov. 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,” Rudd says.
