The apocalyptic comedy will be hitting theatres in the height of summer next month, and everything we’ve seen so far has it pretty much guaranteed to be the funniest film of the year.
In promoting the release of the film, Rogen has come together with co-stars Jay Baruchel, James Franco, and Danny McBride, and the four have promised to make some awesome things happen as the number of Likes on the film’s Facebook page increases. Here’s a little rundown of the offers they’ve put on the table:
500,000 Likes = danny + (wax + seth’s back)
650,000 Likes = (jay + danny) + spaghetti
800,000 Likes = seth + (james + nudity)
Amazing. The power of social media.
At the time of writing, their Facebook page is currently at about 330,000 Likes, and you know you want to help get those numbers higher. Because, let’s face it, we want to see videos of Danny waxing Seth’s back, Jay and Danny sharing a romantic moment, and, the big one (no pun intended), Seth painting James in the nude.
So let’s all spread the love and send anyone and everyone you know on over to Facebook.com/ThisisTheEnd, to hit that little Like button.
