There is simply no end to this bromance.
A pair of saucy Instagram photos posted to Franco’s account showed him and Rogen spoofing the Discovery Channel’s popular reality show, Naked and Afraid. The first, captioned, “See if me and seth can make it, NAKED and AFRAID!!!! Wtf?! You’ll see……..” shows the two of them in the back of a pickup truck, under a tarp and, yes, definitely naked, though some strategically placed burlap keeps their innocence intact.
In the second photo, they’re looking totes adorbs in matching outfits: necklaces made with large wooden beads, burlap messenger bags and… oh. That’s it. That’s the standard uniform for contestants on Naked and Afraid, who are dropped in the wilderness and told to survive without food, water or clothes.
The second snap is captioned, “Boom boom, NAKED and Afraid. Me and Seth, in the bush, naked, together. For reals.”
Is it actually for reals? Maybe Franco and Rogen are contestants on Naked and Afraid this season. Maybe they’re teasing an upcoming movie. Maybe they’re heading into the wilderness in search of picturesque backdrops for a nude portrait sesh. Or maybe they’re just headed on a bro-cation to escape the hustle of Hollywood life. We may never know.
