Some lucky New Yorkers got a sweet surprise from Paul Rudd on Thursday, as they braved the rain to vote early in the 2020 election.

According to videos and pictures circulating on Twitter, the beloved (and ageless) actor handed out cookies to people waiting in the rain to vote at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“I’m voting in Brooklyn and Paul Rudd is handing out cookies,” tweeted user @Bowl_of_Worcel, along with a 17-second video of the “Ant-Man” star wearing a hat, rain coat and face mask. As of Thursday evening, the video has garnered over three million views.

“I wanted to say thank you, for coming out and voting and doing your part,” Rudd says in the video, as he hands a voter a cookie.

Another Twitter user confirmed the Rudd sighting.

“Paul Rudd is handing out cookies to early voters voting in the rain @ Barclay’s Center,” wrote user @onjrayuh, along with a selfie with Rudd. “I like him x100 more. Go #VOTE!”

More photos of Rudd greeting voters with cookies were posted by the Barclays Center’s official Twitter, which wrote, “Hey, look at us, who would’ve thought.. we’d be enjoying cookies with Paul Rudd after voting in BK”

Rudd opened up about his tasty gift to voters in an interview with NowThis at the polls.

“It should not be hard to vote, ” Rudd told the outlet. “People should be getting the day off from work. Polling places should be everywhere. This should be easy, not difficult.”

The video interview also includes a clip of Rudd greeting a voter, who, after collecting her cookie, tells the actor, “Thank you for never aging.”

The surprise garnered praise from many Twitter users, who commended the actor for his act of kindness.

“i love paul rudd with my entire heart and soul,” wrote @IR0NLANG, along with photos of Rudd with the cookies.

“paul rudd really spending his day giving cookies to voters in the rain, he really is the only man ever,” wrote @civiIswar.

“But the question is: is this Paul Rudd handing out cookies at voting lines in 2020, 2016, 2012, or 1972, because again, dude doesn’t age,” joked CityNews Edmonton reporter Courtney Theriault on Twitter.

Paul Rudd embraces being a millennial, wearing a mask in COVID-19 PSA video: ‘It’s science!’
