Seth Rogan has spoken out about the underage teenager who got arrested for using a McLovin fake ID.
The story of Daniel Alfredo Burleson, who is twenty-years-old from Iowa, has made headlines around the world this week for his hilarious attempt of trying to get served alcohol in a bar.
Daniel was approached by a police officer when he was spotted in an Iowa City bar drinking a vodka beverage.
He refused to hand over his ID repeatedly which lead the officer to remove him from the bar and demand to see some form of identification.
The officers were astounded when they came across a fake Hawaiian driver’s license when Daniel was drunkenly sifting through his wallet in an attempt to find some sort of ID.
“When officers asked for his fake ID the defendant stated that he did not have one. He then pulled out his wallet and began shuffling through the wallet and police would see the def’s fake Hawaii ID with the name “McLovin DOB 06/03/1961,'” the report stated.
The Superbad character, Fogell, who is played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, purchases the fake ID in a desperate attempt to buy alcohol – which surprisingly works!
But in typical Superbad fashion, the ID comes back as a Hawaiian driver’s license that totally screams “fake ID.”
It became a global sensation, as well as a world-wide meme for all underage hopefuls wanting to buy booze. But Daniel was ultimately taken into custody on charges of suspicion of possession of a fictitious license, unlawfully possessing alcohol, public intoxication, and being under the legal age in a bar.
It was discovered that Daniel had bought the fake ID online from Amazon for a mere $7
Despite his arrest and the disapproval of the authorities (and probably his parents), Superbad creator Seth Rogen was clearly impressed with the teenager’s efforts.

“My work here is done,” Rogen said in a tweet about the story of Daniel’s arrest.
It has to be said, getting the seal of approval from the comedy legend himself is totally worth getting arrested over McLovin’s ID… right?
