I hear a sound in the deepest recesses of my mind. It’s a guttural echo, a vivid cacophonous chortle; it’s an out-of-body experience rife for metaphysical reflection. I hear it and I realize that nothing’s real, that I’m an alien whose thoughts and feelings could be manipulated via simulation. The sound is so real, so down-to-Earth true, that I hear it and stop in my tracks. I take a second to just exist and smile.
I’m talking, of course, about Seth Rogen’s laugh.
The bombshell Jewish superstar has hit it big thanks to an abundance of resources and a hard-working spirit which he’s carried through his life. He started writing his breakout hit Superbad when he was 13 before paragliding into the limelight and maintaining star quality. Films like Pineapple Express, This is the End, and Sausage Party have rested on Rogen’s amicable Jewish-stoner-bro persona and catapulted his career to new heights. Recently, he’s taken an entrepreneurial venture with his weed distribution company Houseplant, which seems to have opened the celebrity’s door to new avenues in entertainment, including esports.
Also, his laugh is hilarious.
The stream is scheduled for June 17th and will feature Rogen raising awareness and money for Alzheimer’s care, support, and education. This is the latest in a long string of FaZe Clan collaborations which have propelled the gaming influencer organization to megastar status in the zeitgeist, including the cover of Sports Illustrated. Rogen will first join gaming creator Nate Hill in a few games of Rocket League before linking with FaZe Banks, SunlessKhan, and other special guests. All the while, he’ll be educating viewers at home “to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and the importance of brain health.”
Seth Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller Rogen founded the HFC nonprofit movement to alleviate some of the stresses wrought on families by Alzeimer’s. The organization provides in-home care grants as well as information and other resources to those afflicted most by the disease. Additionally, Hilarity for Charity has taken on other iterations: last year, it was a full-length Netflix special which featured Rogen riffing alongside other friends in the entertainment industry.
Catch Seth Rogen on the FaZe Clan Twitch channel tomorrow at 2pm PDT to participate in this exciting collaboration. Be sure to listen extra carefully for the sweet, dulcet tones of laughter that’ll come with.
