Seth Rogen appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Wednesday, where he discussed recently attending Adele One Night Only. The actor, who was heavily featured in the televised event revealed that the concert was much more than he expected. Rogen attended the concert under the pretext that it was a small and intimate performance. He had no idea it was a televised special being hosted by Oprah Winfrey. To make matters more interesting, him and his wife Lauren Miller were very high on marijuana.

“I had no idea I was attending the taping of an Adele television special at all,” Rogen said. “And then me and my wife were like, okay maybe [we can] slink into the background. You know. like we'll just sit in the back it's fine. We are not equipped mentally to deal with doing this right now, really and so we go up to the desk, they give us our tickets and our seat numbers literally are 1a and 1b. And I'm like, ‘Oh, no! Doesn’t get any bigger.’”

SETH ROGEN: I was there. I was in the front row of the Adele concert. And that is as surprising to me as anyone because I had no idea I was attending the taping of an Adele television special at all.

- On Wednesday, Seth Rogen appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," where he discussed sitting in the front row of the recent Adele "One Night Only" special.

SETH ROGEN: The whole time, I'm just trying to look cool, which is not like a healthy thought to have. And for me at an Adele-- it was hard for me to look cool. Because I'm uncomfortable. I'm too close. I feel like Leonardo DiCaprio behind me, thinking like, did Seth Rogen write "Rolling In The Deep?" Is that why he's so close?

- Rogen attended the concert with his wife Lauren Miller, and the outspoken marijuana enthusiast admitted that they got very high before realizing the concert was being televised.

SETH ROGEN: And then me and my wife were like, OK, maybe we can just kind of like slink into the background. You know, like we'll just sit in the back. It's fine. So we go up to the desk, and they give us our tickets, and our seat numbers literally are 1A and 1B. I'm like, oh no.

JIMMY FALLON: It doesn't get bigger.

SETH ROGEN: That sounds close.

- Rogen was featured throughout the concert, and he still genuinely does not know why.

JIMMY FALLON: Do you know Adele?

SETH ROGEN: I've never met her. No. I don't know Adele. And if, Adele, you're watching this, why did that-- why did you do that?

- The Adele special pulled in huge numbers in the ratings, and Rogen revealed that his friends were big fans of his appearance.

SETH ROGEN: Everyone I know watched it. It was, I think it's the most popular thing I've ever been in, in my entire life. Like, there's people who I know have not watched my last five movies who have been texting me, being like, you were amazing. That Adele concert looked incredible.
