Paul Rudd’s youthful looks have had people talking once again.
A 1991 Super Nintendo commercial starring the actor, now 52, has resurfaced online, showing him playing his way through a series of games, including F-Zero, Pilotwings, Super Play Action Football, SimCity and The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past.

A voiceover says, “When you decide to step up to this kind of power, this kind of challenge, this kind of flying, crashing, feeling, when you decide to get serious, there’s only one place to come: the games of Super Nintendo.
“No one else creates this kind of experience because no one else creates these kinds of games. Now you’re playing with power, super power.”
The 30-year-old ad came a year before Rudd started earning credited roles, including in the television drama “Sisters” where he played Kirby Quimby Philby.

Does he ever age?

Funny that he looks old for a 22 Yr old there, but now looks incredible for a 52 Yr old

And I was this many days old. Pretty sure he is an animatronic, he looks exactly the same today.

One of the best commercials from my childhood & he hasn’t aged a fucking moment. 😂

Is Paul Rudd actually a real person? I think he's just a CGI character. That's the only way to explain the fact he's only aged 5 years since 1991.

So he's 30 years older but looks pretty much the same. 🙄😕
