We’re glad this was just an evil prank!

TruTV’s “Billy on the Street” (which will air on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. on TruTV) uploaded new footage to YouTube entitled “Billy on the Street: DEATH ROGEN! with Seth Rogen.”

Billy Eichner thought it’d be an hilarious idea to walk up to people on the street in New York City and tell them that actor Seth Rogen died to see their reactions. However, little did they know the Seth Rogen would be behind the camera filming their responses.

“We’ve lost so many great artists this year who don’t live long enough to see all the many profound ways that people pay tribute to them after they’re gone,” Billy started off saying.

While some people had never heard of Seth Rogen, some were in complete shock about the false news and guessed the cause of death.

“Oh, my gosh — my chest is hurting,” one woman said as she reacted to the news.

“Wait, are you serious?” another woman said.

Even though it’s a pretty terrible prank, we’re glad Rogen and Billy got a kick out of it!
