When Seth Rogen saw Donald Trump Jr. followed him on Twitter, he seized an opportunity.

These days, anyone with a relationship to Donald Trump — personal or professional, good or bad — is probably treating social media like a minefield.

Not only are those near him subject to criticisms, but also jokes or even pleas to let reason prevail during this tumultuous time.

Donald Trump Jr. got all three when he decided recently to follow comedic actor Seth Rogen on Twitter.


Rogen was quick to notice his prominent new follower, and the Canadian-born U.S. resident wasn’t about to let this direct line to the president slip through his fingers.

So he reached out in a tweet that’s so in keeping with his on-screen persona that you might as well read it in his voice:

"Hey bro, quick Q..."

Subsequently, Rogen — realizing that perhaps a message of this gravity couldn’t be encapsulated in 140 characters — reached out to Trump Jr. with a direct message, both clarifying and reiterating his request:

"Do me a solid, Broseph..."

Despite not receiving a response from the president’s son (or not sharing one if he did), Rogen then took things a step further, offering unsolicited advice on matters of policy and personnel in the Trump administration:

Let’s all hold out hope for a response, then a dialogue, then the announcement of Seth Rogen as a special advisor to the president.

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
