It appears that Seth Rogen’s well-being was being questioned in a viral TikTok music video posted earlier this week, but fear not! The 39-year-old actor consoles our worries by taking to Twitter letting us know that he’s not being held against his will.
TikTok user @chriscanbefunny sings, “Has anybody seen Seth Rogen lately?” while hammering a missing photo to a tree at the start of the two-minute video. He included a montage of the beautiful vases Rogen has picked up as a hobby for the last two years.
The wild theory that Chris came up with in his video is that Rogen has been kidnapped by a “shady ceramicist.” In the video, Chris and a friend reenact what they imagine Rogen’s fake kidnapping scenario would look like, including scenes of the fake kidnapper putting the actor in a car’s trunk and tweeting messages from his Twitter account.
Chris clarifies in the clip that he doesn’t mean that Rogen is incapable of beautiful ceramic creations, singing, “I’m not saying it’s impossible that, in addition to comedy, Seth can make pottery. I’m just saying, can we check on Seth?” The video has garnered over 34,000 likes and 170,000 views, which caught the attention of Rogen on Twitter.
