With the help of Paul Rudd, a pair of “Tonight Show” staffers were tasked by the Governor’s office with making a P.S.A. to get millennials to mask up.
Andrew Cuomo isn’t known for his cool factor with young people, or for his comedy chops. But, last month, New York’s governor tweeted out a video that covered both bases: a public-service announcement imploring millennials to wear masks, starring Paul Rudd. “Yo, what up, dawgs? Paul Rudd here, actor and certified young person,” the fifty-one-year-old begins, wearing skater gear. “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.”
