Seth Rogen Goes Full Drake in Lip Sync Battle With Jimmy Fallon

Seth Rogen hit The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his filthy, R-rated animated film Sausage Party. As usual, no one is allowed on The Tonight Show without being subjected to some kind of contest or game. For Rogen, it was a lip sync battle, and he didn't disappoint.

For his part, Fallon did "Don't Mind" by Kent Jones and an enthusiastic performance of Onyx's "Slam." But Rogen was the star of the show. Instead of gyrating to a backing track for his first song, he did a lip sync of The Roots' "Mellow My Man," played live by the band.

After that, he cast his jacket aside and donned a gray turtleneck sweater to best channel his inner Drake — a fellow Canadian — for a rendition of "Hotline Bling." During the track, he tosses out a few moves from the music video and doesn't really look that much stranger than Drake while doing it. It's a bit of an understated battle, but The Roots playing live and Rogen going full Drake makes it worthwhile.

Watch the video above, then watch Rogen discuss Sausage Party , a film he's worked on for 10 years, in an interview with Fallon.
