Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen have taken up the cause of warning young people about fighting the ongoing pandemic and staying safe against dangers of the virus—and they're doing so in the most hilariously Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen ways possible.

The Canadian province of British Columbia is having a bit of problem with young people not taking the virus seriously. Recently, Premier John Horgan held a press conference to address the issue.

Enlisting BC's two most famous native sons, Reynolds and Rogen, he asked for help in getting the word out.

In his remarks, Horgan affably shouted out the two actors and asked for their assistance.

"This is a call out to Deadpool right now: Ryan, we need your help up here... Seth Rogen, another outstanding British Columbian, we need to communicate with people who aren't hearing us, the two of you alone could help us in that regard."

And the two stars came through, in the ways only Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen ever could.

Rogen, naturally, encouraged staying at home by extolling the virtues of marijuana.

Urging fellow British Columbians to forgo large gatherings, Rogen made a compelling case for a smoky alternative instead.

"It's more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!"

But when it came to Ryan Reynolds, well... of course he had to take the whole thing several steps further! He posted a recording of himself leaving a voicemail for Premier Horgan, in which he delivered one of his trademark dry-humor monologues.

Reynolds made a compelling case for not killing any of their fellow British Columbians that was hard to argue with.

"Here's the thing: I hope that young people in B.C. don't kill my Mom, frankly, or [Canadian scientist] David Suzuki or each other. Let's not kill anyone, I think that's reasonable."

Reynolds also included quips about his mom being something of a cougar for "Abercrombie burnouts," a reference to wife Blake Lively's stint on Gossip Girl, and his ongoing social media "feud" with frequent co-star Hugh Jackman.

"People don't--I don't think they want medical advice from guys like me. No sir. Unless it's plastic surgery, which, a lot of people don't know this, but I used to be Hugh Jackman."

On Twitter, people were totally here for Reynolds' and Rogen's PSAs.

The Premier himself, of course, was also appreciative of the gents' antics.
