Last night, Seth Rogen was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This was not the first time, and certainly not the last. Not only did he talk about his new movie, but he showed us a bit of his personality and upbringing. Throughout the episode Rogen effortlessly makes the crowd and viewers fall even more in love with him than they were before the episode began.
The movie, Sausage Party shows Rogen’s “deranged” sense of humor and the dedication to his job and passion. Rogen mentioned it has taken him ten years to create the perfect movie down to the animation and music. Rogen and his team went as far as striving for the quality of Pixar and reaching out to the American musical theatre and film composer, Alan Menken for the music. This is not the mediocre, adult cartoon many were expecting. The movie is set to be released into theaters August 11th.
While talking about the film Rogen showed his modesty by referring to this film that has taken up to “1/3 of his life” as a “hot dog movie”. Though his eagerness and excitement for the film showed, it is nice to see a humble creator. It just adds to his quirkiness.
Moving on to the lip sync portion of Jimmy Fallon, Rogen shows up and shows out. Anyone who watches Jimmy Fallon looks forward to the different degree of fun Fallon brings to the show. Rogen’s first choice in the battle included the unexpected Roots Band single, “Mellow My Man”. As the band played live, Rogen lip synced to Back Throught’s verse. Not only did they perform live, they also lent him a legendary “comb with the black fist”. Fallon felt betrayed by his house band to say the least.
Rogen’s next choice is not as legendary, but a catchy tune that has taken over the past year just as much as the artist. “Hotline Bling” really added the cherry on top of Rogen’s performance. Repping Toronto as his home, or the 6ix as Drake would call it, Rogen threw on a grey turtle neck while he mimicked the verses to a tee. I was in awe and in tears from laughing so hard, honestly. He also fearlessly hit the jig, Drake has been revered from in multiple memes. Gotta love ’em.
Whether Rogen has a great publicist, or is just a great human being, or both. This episode of Jimmy Fallon is one for the books. Watch some scenes below!
