A new ad enlists Jason Voorhees from the 'Friday the 13th' movie series to promote wearing a mask:
In the video, the dashing slasher, who has terrorized the young people at Camp Crystal Lake in 9 movies (the first one was his mother), is seen walking around New York City as various people notice him walking down the street, in a park or on the subway and immediately run
“It’s not easy. The mask kind of makes people uncomfortable,” Voorhees narrates at the beginning of the commercial, as he roams about New York City. “I’m just trying to fit in.” Life for Jason is a nightmare – Jason rides the subway, tries to pet a dog in Central Park, and fails to hail a cab.
