Seth Rogen appeared on the pre-NBA Finals Game 7 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about his new animated movie Sausage Party, a demented film about sentient food. “It’s probably one of the craziest things we’ve ever done, and we almost started a war,” Rogen said, hearkening back to the time his North Korea-baiting The Interview triggered an international incident.
“It’s our goal to turn children off of food,” Rogen said. “It’s an idea we’ve had. We love animated movies and we thought one day, ‘What if our food had feelings?’ And then we thought, ‘It’d be super messed up because we eat our food and it would be a horrible existence for them.’ And that’s what the birthed the movie Sausage Party. We wanted to make the first R-rated, Pixar-style [film].”
Rogen’s Kimmel interview ended with a surprise visit from a special guest: “Baby Curry,” the pudgy infant in a Golden State jersey whose been a reoccurring highlight during the late-night host’s special NBA Finals mini-episodes. However, whether it was the bright lights of the studios, the overwhelming audience response or the fact that he just didn’t like Rogen, “Baby Curry” was not happy to meet the Sausage Party creator.
Sausage Party opens August 12th.
