Seth Rogen has reacted to an inundation of tweets saying that a smiling dog gone viral looks exactly like him – and he loves it.

Rogen is a comedian and actor that has featured in some of the most popular comedy films of modern times. He has played leading roles in films such as Knocked up, This Is the End and The Interview, working with the likes of James Franco and Jonah Hill to name but a few.

With any major star, social media is an incredibly important tool – for better or for worse – but Rogen isn’t a regular poster online. However, when he does, it’s always a success, and now he’s gone viral after reacting to a photo of a dog that everyone has been telling him he looks like.

Instagram: sethrogenSeth has a dog of his own, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Zelda.

In a tweet posted on January 9, Rogen quote tweeted a photo of the dog – smiling, and looking distinctly wholesome – addressing the “dozens” of people who tagged him in the tweet.

However, while some people might be offended at the suggestion that they literally look like a dog, Rogen seemed particularly pleased with himself.

He said: “I’ve been tagged by dozens of people saying I look like this dog and I couldn’t be more flattered.”

You can see why some people may consider there to be a resemblance between the two, particularly around the eyebrows and with their matching bushy hair, though we’d hesitate to call them complete doppelgangers.

Barely 12 hours later, Rogen had already received over 52,000 retweets and nearly 500k likes on the tweet, with fans absolutely loving the comparison between the two.

One user even went so far as to create a short video of the scaling evolution from smiling dog to Seth Rogen, and it definitely makes it more clear what exactly people are seeing.

Rogen is just one of many people to have been told he looks like a random animal here and there, but the way he embraces it is both hilarious and heartwarming.

Who knows, maybe we’ll see Rogen’s lookalike appearing on the big screen in the near future: after all, stranger things have happened.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
