Billy Eichner is back for more hilariously uncomfortable interviews with unsuspecting New Yorkers for his fifth season of ‘Billy on the Street.’ In a comedically morbid segment called ‘Death Rogen,’ Billy is joined by the ‘Neighbors’ star to send interviewees on a roller coaster of emotion.
Billy frantically wrangled strangers off of the street and told them that actor Seth Rogen had suddenly passed away to see how they would react. Little did they know, Rogen was tagging along the whole time in disguise as Eichner’s cameraman.
Rogen got a chance to know how the people really felt about him before Billy revealed that he was alive and very present. The results of this death hoax reveal are just as hilariously cringeworthy as you’d expect.
While some people had kind words regarding Rogen’s comedic legacy, others weren’t as distraught over his fake passing. When asked to share her thoughts on the actor’s death, one woman said, ‘Seth Rogen? Seth Rogen? Doesn’t really ring a bell.’
Billy ran into one fan who was quick to state that she found him much funnier than Seth Rogen, completely unaware that the actor was standing just behind him.
‘I don’t find him funny at all,’ the woman admitted before Billy exposed Rogen behind the camera, prompting a painfully awkward post-reveal conversation.
Seth Rogen was understandably uncomfortable throughout the entire segment, but he managed to hide his identity surprisingly well by just using a camera as a disguise.
