Fortunately for Rogen, West was pleased with Rogen’s bounce-heavy take on the original video’s Kim Kardashian role. Rogen talked to Howard Stern on Sirius XM about the time he ran into West at the hotel lobby in Soho, and all he was trying to do was to get some plates to eat some Milk Bar desserts on. One thing led to another and Rogen and his wife, Lauren Miller, ended up listening to a live performance of West’s album, which was unreleased at the time.
“He’s like, you want to hear some of my new shit now? And we were like, ‘Yeah! And so, where do we go?’ ‘I got a limo, in front of the hotel. And me and my wife were like, okay!” Rogen recalled about his chance encounter with the rapper.
Take a listen to Rogen’s excitement at watching West rap in his limo, and yes, Rogen admits he was high during the whole thing.
