Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus has shared a new video encouraging people to wear face masks amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Saving a life is very difficult,” Hoppus says in the clip. “Firefighters train for years, EMTs train for years, surgeons go to school for eight years.”

“For me, to help save a life, all that I have to do is this,” the bassist continues as he puts on a mask.

“It’s so easy!” he says. “Wear your mask, save a life, people! Let’s get through this.”

The CDC recommends that Americans wear masks to slow the spread of COVID-19. Over half of the U.S. states have issued statewide mask mandates.
