Seth Rogen hilariously responds to teen who was arrested for using McLovin ID to get into bar
Seth Rogen is being praised for his response to an underage drinker being arrested for using a fake ''McLovin'' ID, made famous by his movie, Superbad.
Daniel Alfredo Burleson, the underage drinker in question, was seen by police in an Iowa bar last Friday. According to Fox11, Burleson had a drink in his hand, a bar wristband and "smelled strongly of ingested alcohol and had slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes." Burleson also reportedly had a fake Hawaiian ID with the name McLovin and the date of birth of June 3, 1981, on it.
Relive the moment Fogell shows his friends the infamous McLovin ID in Superbad:
According to reports, the 20-year-old from Des Moines failed to show police his ID inside the bar and was escorted out. It was then that he finally pulled out his real ID. Police, however, asked Burleson to produce his fake ID as well, but the underage drinker told them he didn't have one.
While looking through his wallet, though, an officer spotted the fake McLovin ID, popularised by the 2007 cult film. Burleson then admitted to purchasing the ID from Amazon for around $15.
In any case, Rogen was evidently amused by the story and even shared a link to it on Twitter, proclaiming: "My work here is done."
Of course, fans of the 37-year-old actor had plenty of things to say about the underage drinker's nod to Superbad:
"Damn you better pay this mans bail lmao [sic]," one user wrote.
"My god you've changed the world," another chimed in, while a third shared the following anecdote: "My jokester, 44-year-old husband used his McLovin ID to pick up his prescription at the pharmacy and the employee looked at it and handed it back without saying a word."
For those of you who haven't watched the film, Fogell, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, uses a hilariously inauthentic Hawaiian fake ID to buy alcohol - an ID which only features the name 'McLovin', and states that he was born in 1981. In the film, the fake ID works out pretty well as the character manages to buy a bottle of vodka.
According to KCRG, Burleson was taken to Johnson County Jail and released shortly after. He was charged with being in possession of a fictitious ID and is expected to be present at a preliminary hearing on October 21.
