Billy on the Street: Eichner does Seth Rogen is dead prank

Posted on

TruTV

He’s making dreams come true… but first, he’s depressing the heck out of people. In this exclusive clip from Billy on the Street, Seth Rogen joins Billy Eichner for “Death Rogen,” one of Eichner’s zany street game shows with a morbid twist meant to pay tribute to all the celebrities that have passed away in 2016.

As Rogen mans the camera, Eichner approaches people on the New York City streets and tells them the Neighbors star has died. The goal is for Rogen to get to see reactions to his death before he’s actually gone. But, of course, things don’t go according to plan as many people have no idea who the comedian is.

“Sorry to hear that,” one man says. “I haven’t the slightest idea who that guy is.”

Rogen does get somewhat of a confidence boost, though, as several people are devastated by his “death.”

“This feels like a prank,” one woman says as she chokes back tears. “If we didn’t have laughter, the world would suck a whole lot.”

Of course, Eichner immediately reveals to all of his contestants that not only is Rogen alive and well, but he’s RIGHT HERE!! There are some sighs of relief, some confusion, and some f-bombs, but all in all, Eichner executes his prank well.

Watch the clip above for more “Death Rogen.” Billy on the Street airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. on truTV.
