Twitter Thinks Seth Rogen Looks Like This Dog and He Agrees

Seth Rogen tweeted his approval, after Twitter told him that a popular photo of a puppy looked like him.

On Thursday, the Superbad writer and star tweeted that he'd been shown the photo. "I've been tagged by dozens of people saying I look like this dog and I couldn't be more flattered," he wrote.

Many Twitter users did note the dog's resemblance to the comedy star.

As if the dog didn't look enough like Rogen, some fans took the liberty to make the two look more similar. One added Rogen's signature glasses and made it appear the dog was smoking a joint. Another shared a video of the dog with Rogen's laugh playing over it. A few others simply superimposed Rogen's face over the dog's.

The dog's name is Nori Porkchop and has over 16,000 Instagram followers. Porkchop's human posted on his Instagram story on Thursday to celebrate Rogen's approval. "Hey! @sethrogen thinks we are twins," his story stated.

Other Twitter users compared the dog to other film stars. Someone compared the canine to TV painting instructor Bob Ross, calling it "Dog Ross." One said the pup looked like it was from an iconic disco trio. "If you said this was one of the guys in the 'Bee Gees' I'd believe you," he wrote. Another said that he looked like The Newsroom star Jeff Daniels. The dog has also been compared to John Goodman, James Corden, Owen Wilson, and Steve Carrell in Evan Almighty. Some also replied to the tweet with side-by-side comparisons to Albert Einstein and the Mona Lisa.

Other users were more abstract in their comparison. "He looks like one of those animated dogs your see in those R rated comedy movies where the characters get high on peyote," one user wrote. Another said that he "looks like someone's uncle that just gave them a birthday card with a $100 bill in it."

The original tweet by photo-sharing account 41 Strange currently has over 1,000 replies, 9,500 retweets, and 69,000 likes, as of Friday at 11:15 a.m. ET. The account shares artwork and film screenshots in addition to exotic animal photos.

Rogen is set to voice a character on Amazon Prime Video's upcoming adaptation of Robert Kirkman's comic series Invincible, alongside J.K. Simmons and Steven Yeun. According to Deadline, Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg are also developing a feature-length film adaptation of the comic, which they will write, produce and direct.
