We all know Paul Rudd is ageless. (Seriously. Look at this picture of him in 1995’s Clueless and then look at a current photo of him. How?!) Now New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has taken advantage of the actor’s youthful looks in a new PSA video in which Rudd begs his “fellow millennials” to wear masks during the pandemic.

“Yo, what up, dogs,” Rudd says in the video. “Paul Rudd here, actor and certified young person. A few days ago 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.”

“So Cuomes asked me, he’s like, ‘Paul, you’ve gotta help. What are you, like 26?’” he continues. “And I didn’t correct him. So fam, let’s real talk. Masks, they’re totally beast. So slide that into your DMs and Twitch it.”

The video also includes Rudd uttering other gems like “listen hypebeasts, masks protect you and your dank squad” and rapping before getting serious. “Please, it’s not hard,” he says. “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! Ugh.”

The video is part of Cuomo’s Mask Up America campaign. “This nation is still battling the COVID-19 pandemic and young people are not immune from it,” Cuomo told USA TODAY. “We all need to do our part and wear a mask. Thanks to Paul Rudd for helping us spread this crucial message and reach young people like him.”
