Am I the only one that finds Franco and Rogen’s friendship absolutely afuckingdorable and sweet? I mean, they went from Freaks and Geeks to Pineapple Express to This Is the End. 13-14 years for those two guys, I hope they keep on going.

I love those nigs. I wish they were my best friends so we’d play Xbox all day and eat and jam out and just chill. They seem like hella cool nigs and wHY CAN’T I JUST BE FRIENDS WITH THEM ALREADY?
