  • Seth Rogen was placed in the front row of Adele's "One Night Only" TV special.

  • Rogen told Jimmy Fallon that he was confused about why he'd been given such a good seat.

  • "I don't know Adele!" he said.

Seth Rogen told Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" this week that he spent most of his time at the taping of Adele's "One Night Only" TV special confused about why he'd been placed in the front row, because he'd never met the singer.

The 39-year-old comedian and filmmaker said he'd accepted an invitation to the exclusive event with the understanding that it was an intimate performance. As such, he said, he turned up to the event high on marijuana with his wife, Lauren Miller, only to find a much bigger production than he had expected.

"We pull up, and we see cranes, camera cranes — there's drones flying around. There's an entire crew there, and I'm like, 'Oh no, we are at the filming of a television special,'" Rogen said.

"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, you know — we're not equipped mentally to deal with doing this right now really. And so we go up to the desk, and they give us our tickets, and our seat numbers literally are 1A and 1B. And I'm like, 'Oh no, that sounds close!'"

Fallon proceeded to ask Rogen whether he and Adele knew each other, to which Rogen responded: "No! I don't know Adele! And if, Adele, you're watching this, why did you do that?"

Rogen said he spent much of the evening feeling uncomfortable with his position in the crowd of other famous names.

"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 said.

Adele's "One Night Only," which was filmed at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and aired on CBS on November 14, was hosted by Oprah Winfrey and featured appearances from stars such as Lizzo, Melissa McCarthy, and Drake. During the special, Adele performed songs from her latest album, "30," as well as some of her most popular hits. Deadline reported that it had one of the largest audiences for an entertainment special this year, with over 9 million viewers in primetime.

Later during his interview, Rogen told Fallon that he received messages from people congratulating him on his attendance at the event.

"Everyone I know watched it," Rogen said. "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!'"
