Seth Rogen revealed on Twitter that his longtime pal Paul Rudd ended up as his massage therapist in a prank gone awry

If having Paul Rudd as your massage therapist sounds like something that could happen only in your wildest dreams, you might feel pangs of envy over the story Seth Rogen told on Twitter yesterday. Rogen revealed that his longtime pal once pranked him in a hotel spa in Las Vegas by switching spots with his massage therapist, and we honestly have so many questions about how this happened.

“Once I was in the spa in a hotel in Vegas getting a massage,” Rogen tweeted on Monday, July 5th. “When I finished I turned over and to my shock Paul Rudd was massaging me. He saw me go in and convinced the masseuse to let him take over, thinking I’d notice immediately. I didn’t, and Paul did the entire rest of it.”

The tweet immediately went viral, prompting plenty of people in Rogen’s replies to ask some much-needed questions like, “did this actually happen?” Producer Jeremy Wein asked Rogen, “Are we sure this wasn’t a weed induced hallucination Seth?” and Rogen replied, “I’m sure Paul would confirm it.”

Neither actor has elaborated more about the surprise prank gone awry, but the two are both known pranksters. It’s unclear when the incident happened, but given that they’ve worked together on multiple films (including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Knocked Up, This Is The End, Sausage Party, and others), the possibilities truly are endless here.

Of course, people were equal parts horrified and delighted by the story, coming through with jokes aplenty.


Here’s hoping that Rogen tipped him well for his services – it seems like if he ever wanted to retire from acting that he could moonlight as a massage therapist. Based on the fact that Rogen seemed to have a five-star experience, we’re sure he’d have plenty of clients lining up around the block to enjoy some “me time” with Paul Rudd. The dream, amirite?
