I wouldn't normally eat something from somebody I don't know, but I'd definitely eat a cookie from Paul Rudd.— Bret B (@bretrb21) October 29, 2020
This isn't the first instance when Paul Rudd came to light for his social services.
Previously, Rudd featured in a fresh PSA video targeted at his "fellow millennials" urging them to wear masks to control the coronavirus pandemic. The 51-year-old cosplays as a fellow "young person," trying to stay hip and ‘on trend’ to make mask norms seem cool to appeal to.
In the introduction of his coronavirus mask PSA demonstration, he says, “So fam, let’s real talk: Masks, they're totally beast.” Rudd declares while strumming on one of those double-necked guitars, “So slide that in your DMs and Twitch it!”
