Typically, having one’s facial features compared to those of a dog is an insult. Seth Rogen, however, is considering it a compliment.
It all began with the Instagram account set up for Nori, a Seattle Aussiedoodle (a cross between an Australian shepherd and a poodle) that has been nicknamed “the dog with the human face.”
Sure enough, Nori’s features are not only human-looking, but bear an uncanny resemblance to one particular human — the star of such big-screen comedies as “Pineapple Express” and “Long Shot”.
It didn’t take long for social media users to post compare-and-contrast photos of Rogen and Nori, with Rogen eventually catching wind of it all.
Responding to the comparison, Rogen admitted he “couldn’t be more flattered.”
“A lot of people say he looks like something from ‘Star Wars’,” Kevin Hurless, Nori’s owner, told Seattle Refined. “People would say Chewbacca, people would say Ewoks, Fizzgig from ‘Dark Crystal’, which is a character from a movie. I think one [his partner] Tiffany got was [Jeff Daniels] from ‘Dumb and Dumber’. So we get a lot more humans, people comparing him to humans now.”
