Paul Rudd is a national treasure. Full stop, no discussion, we will not be accepting questions at this time, thank you very much.
In keeping with his "national treasure" standing, Paul Rudd subtly encouraged early voters in Brooklyn yesterday who were standing out in the rain, waiting to vote, by handing out cookies to the line.
The band Guster's drummer, Brian Rosenworcel, was in line watching it happen.

Lines that stretch 1.5-3 hours in the rain outside Barclay's Center don't seem so bad when Ant Man himself is handing out treats.
Naturally, the internet exploded as people received their cookies and the subtle disbelief of the confections being from an internationally renowned movie star sunk in.

If this doesn't incentivize you to go out and VOTE, with only four days left until election day, we don't know what will.
And if the opportunity comes up: go for the corn cookie.
