Ryan Reynolds Hilariously Calls Out Celebrity PSAs, Ropes In Seth Rogan & Jay Baruchel
Recently, celebrities have taken to their social media feeds to spread a few messages – to stay at home, to stay clean, and to keep calm. However, there have been instances where celebrities have voiced their frustrations about having to stay in – which is normal, right? No one likes to be cooped up in one place for extended periods of time. But, a lot of people are shading these celebrities for the disparity between their lifestyles and those of us normal folks.
Ryan Reynolds has joined in on the fun by posting a PSA with the caption, “Another important message from an important celebrity.”
In the video, he stays true to his brand of humour by saying, “We need to work to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19. I think in times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities we count on most. They’re the ones that are going to get us through this. He continued, “Right after healthcare workers, of course. First responders. People who work in essential services. Ping pong players. Mannequins, they’re great. Childhood imaginary friends, sure. Like 400 other types of people.”
His hilarious PSA comes after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose wife tested positive for the virus, called on him to encourage people to “stay home and save lives” in a Twitter chain that included Michael Buble.
You need to stay home. And so do your friends and family members. Help spread the word with your own video – and tag your friends to remind them to stay home too. And together, we can #PlankTheCurve. @MichaelBuble and @VancityReynolds – can you help? #StayAtHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/f1PQQrzMIK

Ryan, in turn, tagged musician Steven Page, his brother Terry Reynolds and Seth Rogan.
Seth’s response is just as hilarious. He confesses to having emptied out all the toilet paper to record his PSA because “When the @vancityreynolds asks you to help stop the spread of disease, you legally have to say yes because he’s friends with the Prime Minister.” He also reminds everyone to stay at home as “there are worse things you could be asked to do”. The chain doesn’t end there, Seth went on to tag llSuperwomanll Lilly Singh, Shawn Mendes and actor/director/comedian Jay Baruchel.
Jay wastes no time getting to his point “stay home if you can”, which is a reasonable enough request.
Even if it weren’t for their PSAs, let’s do our parts in ensuring we keep our loved ones safe. Stay at home now and we can go back to our normal activities in no time! We’ve got this.
