Sarah Kester 30 Jun 2020

Jason Voorhees AKA the villain from Friday the 13th has changed his tune.

Instead of trying to end lives, he's trying to save them.

The villain is featured in an important New York PSA about the importance of wearing a face mask to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

You can watch the hilarious (but effective) clip below!

Since the coronavirus pandemic started, many celebs have been encouraging people to wear facemasks.

"This is 100 percent the right move," the actor tweeted in support of California Governor Gavin Newsom making masks mandatory.

"This will help us beat this terrible virus. The science is unanimous - if we all wear masks, we slow down the spread and can reopen safely."

He also said that this is "not a political issue."

"Anyone making it a political issue is an absolute moron who can’t read," he wrote.

The PSA starring the Friday the 13th killer starts with him saying, “It’s not easy. The mask kind of makes people feel uncomfortable. I wish everyone could see me for who I am.”

It then shows him just trying to live his life by doing regular things.

This includes walking down the street, feeding ducks at a park, doing the crossword in the newspaper, riding the subway, and trying to pet a cute doggo.

Sadly, since he's, you know, Jason, people constantly run away from him.

"I’m just trying to fit in,” he says in the voiceover.

"I know … the whole chainsaw thing … I get it."

"But behind the mask, I’m just a regular guy.”

The clip then shows a little girl come up to Jason, wearing a mask. She hands him a mask to put over his creepy mask.

They then both nod at approval from each other at a safe six-feet apart distance.

The clip ends with the text "wearing a mask can be scary."

This was followed by the message: "Not wearing once can be deadly. Wear a mask, New York."

The organization had other important things regarding masks in their caption.

"Wearing a mask has proven to be an easy and important way to stem the spread of the #coronavirus," they wrote.

"Yet many New Yorkers still aren't doing it. This is especially true of younger people who may feel invincible to #Covid19."

They continued:

"How can we get them to pay attention to this life-saving message? Tap into pop culture and entertain them. Don't preach. Don't fear-monger. Do the opposite. Make them smile, engage and share with their peers."

The important PSA has been a hit so far with viewers.

"How bad are you going to feel , you young folks bringing the virus home to your mom and dad, gram and gramp? Think, think, THINK, this is NO game!!! Do it for them!"
