McLovin Turns 40 Today! Seth Rogen and Other Stars Offer Birthday Wishes

  Happy Birthday McLovin! The iconic character from “Superbad” has turned 40 on Thursday … that is if you believe his fake ID.

  Because it’s not Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s character Fogell who actually turned 40, it’s his alter ego, the Honolulu native and organ donor McLovin, who according to his fake ID was born June 3, 1981. Fans of “Superbad” noticed the date and shared it online Thursday, leading other stars such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jake Tapper to wish the character himself a happy birthday.

  “Happy 40th birthday McLovin. (We wrote this joke when we were 14 years old),” the film’s writer and co-star Seth Rogen said on Twitter.

  If you haven’t seen the 2007 teen comedy “Superbad” in a while, the film stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera as “Seth and Evan,” named for the film’s writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who are trying to get booze for a party and recruit their friend Fogell who has come up with a fake ID. But their plans start to fall apart when they realize his ID lists him as “McLovin,” which sounds like an “Irish R&B singer.” And hey, he could’ve gone with “Muhammed,” the most commonly used name on Earth. Read a f—ing book for once.

  But not only did he pick McLovin, he made his teenage self 25 rather than a more convincing 21, which landed his birthday on June 3, 1981. Turns out it’s also well past time for him to get that ID updated as well.

  McLovin’s ID has popped up in other occasions, particularly when a 20-year-old in Iowa tried to get into a bar with a fake ID that also read McLovin and listed his birthday as June 3, 1981. You can guess how that turned out.

Seth Rogen and ‘Superbad’ Fans Celebrate McLovin Turning 40

  McLovin’s fake ID from Superbad turned 40-years-old on Wednesday. That is to say the birthdate on the Hawaii driver’s license he used to buy booze in the 2007 comedy was: 06/03/1981. This is not to be confused with the birthday of the actor who played McLovin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse. He’s 31.

  Those still left wondering what that mix of words above means can watch the attached clip and freeze it around the 1:11 mark. Should explain everything.

  Now the charge of subsequent Twitter reactions was led by Seth Rogen himself, the film’s co-writer and co-star. Rogen wished the character a happy 40th birthday, and then added that he and fellow writer Evan Goldberg “wrote this joke when we were 14 years old.”

  Rogen’s tweet went viral, and garnered reactions that either celebrated the movie or pointed out that the sender of said tweet(s) feels/are old. 

  We tried to avoid the latter type (no need to feel old) but no promises. Either way, scroll through some of the reacts below:

Seth Rogen said ❶ work here is done✩fter a 20-year-old from Iowa was caught using a fake ❖Lovin✩D

  Seth Rogen found the funny side of the arrest of a 20-year-old who was caught using a fake “McLovin” ID at a bar in Iowa City, Iowa.

  Daniel Alfredo Burleson was charged with multiple alcohol-related offenses, according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen.

  The ID was made famous by the 2007 cult comedy classic “Superbad,” which Rogen cowrote. The film features Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s character, Fogell, using a fake driver’s license that says his name is McLovin to buy alcohol at a liquor store.

“My work here is done,” Rogen tweeted on Wednesday alongside the news story.

  The Press-Citizen reported that Burleson was approached at a bar by police officers, who searched his wallet. Inside, they found his real ID, which proved his age was 20, and the McLovin ID, which said his date of birth was June 3, 1981 — just like the ID in the movie.

  He told officers he’d bought the prop from Amazon, the report said.

  According to a Fox affiliate, the police wrote in an arrest report that Burleson “smelled strongly of ingested alcohol and had slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes.”

  Burleson faces charges including public intoxication, being in a bar while under the legal drinking age, possession of a fictitious license, and possession of alcohol while underage, the Press-Citizen reported, citing jail records.
