Seth Rogen claims Paul Rudd pretended to be his masseuse as a ‘prank’
Among the posting of photos of his ever-impressive ceramic work and various weed-related content, Seth Rogen dropped a thug story about a time when Paul Rudd gave him a complete massage like a prank (???) while he was in Las Vegas.
Seth tweeted the story with minimal context on Tuesday morning, recounting a visit he made to a spa hotel in Las Vegas at one point in their friendship. Unbeknownst to him, Paul thought it would be a hilarious (again, ???) prank to convince the massage therapist to let him follow Seth into the room instead.
I was in a Vegas hotel spa once for a massage. When I finished I turned around and to my shock Paul Rudd was massaging me. He saw me come in and convinced the masseuse to let him take over, thinking I would notice him immediately. I didn’t, and Paul did everything else.

Seth thinks Paul probably thought he would know something was going on pretty quickly, but apparently Seth had no idea. At least, not until he rolled over onto his back and discovered that it was Paul who was working his knots and his muscles.
“He saw me come in and convinced the masseuse to let him take over, thinking I would notice him immediately,” Seth wrote.
“I didn’t, and Paul did everything else.”
I just … I have so many questions here.
First, how could you not know? Or was Seth here just a) so smug or b) so unbelievably zooned that he couldn’t tell the difference between a good massage therapist and his dumb friend pounding his body?
And when he turned his body over on her, did Paul just… continue the massage? For example, are we talking about a complete remedy with hot stones here or what? I need MORE CONTEXT, Seth.
Naturally, I’m not the only one puzzled about this whole ordeal, and why Seth just decided to tell this nugget of a seemingly spontaneous story at 6 a.m., because his mentions blew up the Shit with questions.
Was Paul Rudd a good masseuse or not?

I’m weirdly obsessed with whether and how much you tip her.

Are we sure it wasn’t a hallucination caused by the weed Seth?

Seth actually responded to this latest tweet from Jeremy Wein, claiming that Paul would confirm this if asked. Which is great, but Paul Rudd is absolutely not online so we can’t just send him a DM to check this story out, you know?
Aside from all that oiled up chaos Seth Rogen dumped online, this Paul Rudd story gave way to one of the best jokes on this hellish website.
