Ryan Reynolds has responded to the premier's request for assistance to help the younger generation understand COVID-19 safety concerns by leaving him a hilarious voicemail.

John Horgan called on celebrities Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen earlier this week as COVID-19 cases have increased in the province due to people in their 20s and 30s partying.

Young partiers created a new flood of COVID-19 cases that started around Canada Day with parties in Kelowna. There were also cascading effects, as tourists went home to other health jurisdictions with COVID-19.

Reynolds left Horgan a voicemail today, Aug. 14, initially saying people probably don't want medical advice from him unless it regards plastic surgery. He posted the message on Twitter.

"Young folks in B.C., they're partying which is of course dangerous and they probably don't know that thousands of young people aren't just getting sick from coronavirus, they're also dying too. And of course it's terrible that it affects our more vulnerable, B.C. is home to some of the coolest people on earth. David Suzuki lives there," he said.

"My mom, she doesn't want to be cooped up in her apartment all day. She wants to be out there cruising Kitsilano Beach looking for some, 30-something, Abercrombie burnout to go full Mrs. Robinson on," he said.


Reynolds said he also loves to party, and threw his shoulder out the last time he watched 32 seasons of Gossip Girl, making him not a great person to spread the message that young people shouldn't party.
