The state of New York has recruited Ant-Man star Paul Rudd for a new public health campaign to help raise awareness about wearing masks.

The video begins in a silly fashion, as Rudd pretends to be a young person. "Yo, listen hype-beasts, masks protect you and your dank squad. Because caring about other people is the new not caring about other people. We gotta yeet this virus."

It gets serious at the end, with Rudd breaking from character and staring into the camera as he delivers his message:

"Just wear a mask. It's easy. It's simple. Please. It's not hard. People are dying. Hundreds of thousands of people are dying, and it's preventable. It's preventable. Just wear a mask. I shouldn't have to make it fun--it's science."

The state of New York has had 450,000+ COVID-19 cases and more than 32,000 related deaths, which is among the highest in America.

@Uncle_Rell: Everyone's affected by the pandemic, and the demographic targeted by this video surely includes a great many gamers. If it helps, consider this a brief public service announcement, watch the video, and then return to your regularly scheduled gamer stuff.

...And also wear a mask.
