Seth Rogen made an appearance on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night to help promote his upcoming animated feature film Sausage Party. After sitting down to discuss the film, Rogen and Fallon decided to engage in an intense lip sync battle that included a truly hilarious take on Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”
Fallon kicked things off by running through Kent Jones’ recent hit “Don’t Mind.” Rogen hit back by co-opting the Tonight Show host’s own house band The Roots by turning up to their 1995 song “Mellow My Man,” which they performed live. After that impressive display, Fallon decided to kick it old school with the anthemic “Slam” by Onyx.
Not to be outdone, Rogen then donned on the same gray sweater that Drizzy wore in the video and slipped into the 6 God’s biggest hit. The comedian had clearly studied the video excessively because he co-opts Drake’s dance moves with a startling degree of precision. At the end, Fallon had no choice but to declare Rogen the champion.
Before paying homage to his Canadian cohort however, Rogen chatted with Fallon about how his latest film Sausage Party came together. Apparently, the idea had been at the back of Rogen’s mind for ten years before he was finally able to get it made. “Yeah, for like a third of my life I’ve been working on making this movie,” he said. “We really wanted it to feel like a Pixar movie,” he added. “Then we made it completely deranged and insane.”
