Summary List Placement

Seth Rogan took to Twitter on Tuesday to clarify that yes, he was fine, and no, he hadn’t been kidnapped, despite a viral TikTok that suggested he was because the actor’s Instagram was full of photos of his pottery rather than his face.

On July 30, Los Angeles-based comedian Chris Karwaski (@chriscanbefunny) posted a song on TikTok asking a simple question: “has anybody seen Seth Rogen lately?”

As Karwaski sings, Rogen has been posting a lot of photos on Instagram of the vases he makes rather than photos of his face lately. Rogen’s pottery hobby is well-documented. As The Cut reported, he went viral for his vase-making skills in 2020, and he’s been posting about making pottery for almost two years now.

Over the course of the past six weeks, Rogen has posted 10 photos on his main Instagram feed of self-described “trippy” vases that he’s made and zero photos of his face. Karwaski’s sketch questions whether Rogen has actually been kidnapped by a ceramicist who’s holding him captive and forcing him to recite his lines from the 2008 film “Pineapple Express.”

“I’m not saying it’s impossible that in addition to comedy Seth can make pottery,” Karwaski sings in the song. “I’m just saying, can we check on Seth?”

Twitter user @gracie_0218 reuploaded the video to Twitter, tagging Rogen in a tweet and asking him to retweet it and confirm that he’s still alive. 

The actor responded, clarifying that he was not being held captive.

“This video is very funny and not at all true! I have not been kidnapped! This is not a kidnapper writing this from Seth’s account! I promise!” Rogen wrote in an August 3 tweet.

Thankfully, Rogen is okay, and Karwaski has uploaded the song to Spotify so you can listen to the dulcet tones of “Has Anybody Seen Seth Rogen Lately?” to your heart’s content.
