DENVER -- There are some people watching who still aren't wearing a face mask in public. You don't want to. It's weird. You don't think it's necessary. I get it. But I think you're looking at it all wrong.

Because as you'll see in the video above, no matter who you are, there's a face mask for you.

Alright. Which is the right face mask for you?

Are you high fashion? Or maybe high fashion?

Perhaps a formal mask is up your alley... or maybe you're a little more Rock and Roll.

If it is Rock and Roll you're looking for, you're in luck. We've got Bowie and Zappa, The Beatles and The Dead.

The Dead not your thing? What about the undead?

No? Don't worry we have a lot of choices.

Bee beard. Ron Swanson. Beaker from the Muppet Show.

Maybe you want to wave your pride flag or your state flag.

Maybe you're feeling sexy. Of feeling strong. Or feel like partying. Or curling up with a good book.

Maybe you want to be very clear. Or really unclear.

No? It's alright. We'll find you one.

Tiger King. Trump face. Dog face. Mona Lisa. The Scream. Bedazzled. Plain white. Plain black. The man in black.

You could support your Broncos or Avs or Nuggets or Buffs.

Maybe you're a Raiders fan? Maybe you should examine your life choices? I'm kidding.

Are movies your thing? We got you covered. There's Darth Vader. Silence of the Lambs. A Harry Potter fan created a mask that reveals the Marauder's map as you breathe. There's even a Joe Dirt mask.

Maybe you're rich and want to show it or poor and want to seem rich. Either way, there you go. These masks by Off-White go for $200 each.

You can be anyone you want to be under a mask.

You could be happy all the time. You could be the smoker you've always wanted to be.

You could be literal. Or vague.

You could wear a small mask. Or a B.I.G. one.

You could blend in. Or stand out.

Whatever style you want, whatever color you want, whatever message you want to send, great.

Because the only thing we want from your mask is to not get sick.

Please wear a mask.
