This video of Paul Mescal reading children’s books is hotter than it is outside

I’m gonna need a minute


Paul Mescal is now reading children’s bedtime stories to raise money for charity and it’s easily the fittest thing you’ll see this week. And yes you are allowed to find this very attractive.

Paul read the book “Elmer and Super El”  by David McKee to support Save The Children UK. He posted the video on his Instagram and urged his followers to donate if they could after they had finished watching the video.

He captioned the video: “As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, children’s lives are being turned upside down. By donating to Save with Stories, you can support the most vulnerable families in the UK and around the world by helping to provide early learning packs, supermarket vouchers, essential household items and virus protection.

Paul reading the children’s story shockingly wasn’t to satisfy our thirst for him, it is in fact part of a wider campaign by Save The Children UK called “Save With Stories”. Other celebs including Meghan Markle, Lily James and Paloma Faith have read stories to raise money.

But naturally everyone on Twitter has lost their mind over Paul Mescal reading a bedtime story:

Don’t mind me just off to rewatch that video a few more times.
