Superbad writer and actor Seth Rogen had the perfect response on Twitter to a story in the news about a student who actually tried to pull off a McLovin scam.

It’s been close to twelve years since Superbad first hit theaters, and is without a doubt one of the most influential comedies in the last decade. The raunchy teen comedy starred Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, and was a smash hit.

Seth Rogen had the perfect response to a student in Iowa who was arrested after attempting to pull off a scam with a fake ID that was featured in the movie.

Student busted for McLovin ID

One of the most iconic scenes in the film is when an underaged character named Fogell (played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse) devises a scheme to buy alcohol using a fake ID from Hawaii he obtained with the name ‘McLovin’ on it.

A twenty-year old man from Iowa actually tried to pull this off in real life, according to WSVN 7 News. After police were called, officers reportedly asked the student for his ID, to which he responded he didn’t have one. However, when his wallet was searched, police said they discovered a “fake Hawaii ID with the name ‘McLovin DOB 06/03/1981″, the outlet reported. 

Replying to the news story on Twitter, writer and actor in Superbad, Seth Rogen, gave the perfect response.

“My work here is done,” he said, which sent his followers into a frenzy as many found the moment to be hilarious.

Stranger Things and IT actor Finn Wolfhard got in on the fun, and replied to Rogen’s tweet reciting a line from the film from when the character is asked why he chose “McLovin” for the ID card. 

“It was between that and Muhammad,” he said.

Set Rogen’s tweet has over 37,000 likes and 230,000 retweets as of the time of this article, as many Superbad fans have taken to the social media post to reminisce about the film, and cite their favorite lines.

Fans even began to spam McLovin gifs with scenes from the movie, proving that its legacy has endured over the last decade, as its popularity remains.

Superbad recently came to streaming service Netflix in September, and continues to be one of the most influential comedies from the 2000s.

The fact that an underage student actually tried to pull off a scam from the film is an example of why the movie is so popular, as it isn’t that far off from real life.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
