In Johnson’s latest YouTube video, Rogen is hesitant to play the mobile game for the first time but, never one to turn down a sensation, he succumbs.
“I think I’m too old to be playing it, to be honest, but it’s a sensation,” Rogen says. “I love to be part of sensations.”
On his first try the “Sausage Party” actor comes across the infamous badmouthing Pokerock. Rogen attempts to catch the little creature by throwing a pokeball at it, but the uncatchable Pokerock escapes, pelting Rogen with insults instead.
“The name’s Pokerock, b—-,” says the pokemon version of the Rock.
After Johnson repeatedly mocks the actor’s role in the upcoming film “Sausage Party” and suggests he’s a sex offender, Rogen loses his patience with
“Is this why people play this game, to get mocked by some sh—y f—ing digitized version of the Rock?” Rogen asks angrily.
Too bad for Rogen, because then now-life size Pokerock wants to continue
“Pokerock caught you,” Pokerock says.
The video is the latest production from Seven Bucks Digital Studios, a venture spearheaded by Johnson and his business partner and manager Dany Garcia.
