Seth Rogen Didn't Realize That His Adele Concert Invite Would Be For A Televised Special — And Showed Up After Smoking A "Ton Of Weed"

"Adele, if you’re watching this, why did you do that?”

Hey, ever gotten super stoned and ended up somewhere kinda unexpected? For most, it would probably be somewhere in the vibe of a Taco Bell — but if you're Seth Rogen, it's the front row of a televised Adele special.

Adele's concert special, One Night with Adele, hit our screens a couple weeks back, and there were plenty of celeb faces in the audience — Leonardo DiCaprio, Lizzo, Selena Gomez, and, of course, Seth Rogen. Except one small thing: Seth didn't realize that the Adele concert he was going to would a) be televised, b) be quite a big deal, or c) have him in the front row.

"I got an invitation [that said], 'Do you want to go to a small Adele concert?'" Seth explained on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "We smoked a ton of weed, and we were like, 'We're just going to enjoy this lovely Adele concert.'"

“We pull up and we see cranes and camera crews — there's drones flying around. There’s an entire crew and I’m like, ‘Oh no, we are at the filming of a television special.’ We're on a television show! And I’m like, ‘Maybe it’s not that big a television special’ — and then the first person I see is Oprah Winfrey.”

"Then me and my wife are like, 'Okay, maybe we can slink into the background.' ... We're not equipped mentally to deal with this situation. So we go up to the desk, and they give us our tickets, and our seat numbers are 1A and 1B."

Seth then clarified that he didn't know Adele, but asked of his front-row seats, "Adele, if you’re watching this, why did you do that?"

"There's so many more famous people than me here that should be sitting where I'm sitting! I could just feel them be insulted that I had such a good seat. I was in front of Drake — there's no world where I should be in front of Drake! How is that possible? I could just feel Drake's eyes drilling into the back of my head, like, 'Why am I in 3R and he's in 1A?' I was six rows in front of Ellen DeGeneres and Kris Jenner! I truly have no idea why they did that.'"

Seth then explained that he tried to play it "cool," but he was "very actively trying to look like I'm enjoying this Adele concert, which I was, but I was very distracted by being on camera." Of course, there is thankfully camera footage of Seth watching Adele:


I would never have known!


I mean, I probably would have been crying, so whatever works.


Oh, the lives of celebrities.
