Seth Rogen Says His 'Work Here Is Done' After Underage Man Was Arrested With McLovin ID
People around the world couldn't believe their eyes when they read about an underage bloke that got caught in a very prickly situation. If you've seen Superbad then you'll know how well using a fake ID worked for McLovin.
So why someone would actually try it in the real world without having any physical resemblance to the character is beggar's belief.
But while the cops certainly weren't impressed, it seems Daniel Alfredo Burleson has gained a fan in Seth Rogen - who co-wrote the film with Evan Goldberg.
Seth has tweeted: "My work here is done."
He seems pretty chuffed that the 20-year-old was stupid (or smart) enough to use a terrible fake ID to get into an Iowa bar.
Burleson was arrested on Friday evening after he was spotted clutching an alcoholic drink in a local boozer, according to FOX.
When he was confronted by police, it is claimed he admitted to drinking vodka, but didn't provide his ID so he was removed from the bar and eventually ended up handing over the document which showed he was underage.
He was then asked to show his fake ID, but he denied having one. However, when Burleson was flipping through his wallet, the cops spotted a Hawaiian ID card featuring the name 'McLovin' with the date of birth as 3 June 1981.
According to FOX, authorities claim that Burleson 'smelled strongly of ingested alcohol and had slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes'. He was also wearing a wristband from the bar, police said.
It is believed that he was taken to custody on suspicion of possession of a fictitious licence, unlawfully possessing alcohol, public intoxication and being under the legal age in a bar.
To be fair, it's outrageous that he was even allowed into the bar with the McLovin ID.
KCRG reported that Burleson was initially taken to Johnson County Jail, but was released and is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on the possession of a fictitious ID charge on 21 October.
So take that as a lesson in trying to flout the law. If you get caught, which is definitely not advisable, you might get a shout out from a celebrity.
