If you caught Adele's incredible One Night Only concert special two weeks ago, which aired alongside Oprah Winfrey's sit-down with the singer, you probably noticed there were a lot of famous faces in the audience, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Lizzo, Donald Glover, Melissa McCarthy, Selena Gomez and more.

Placed conspicuously in the front row were Seth Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller, having a damn good time along with everyone else, champagne in hand, smiles across their faces. But here's something we didn't know: the pair were hilariously high the entire time.

While appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night, Rogen, a noted weed enthusiast and purvryor of cannabis products, revealed the news, first explaining how strange it was to be invited at all. Learning that he would be seated at the front, ahead of Adele's known pal Drake, Rogen admitted it was “as surprising to me as anyone, because I had no idea I was attending the taping of an Adele television special at all," he shared.

And no, he clarified in his customary shriek, "I don't know Adele!"

The comedian and actor had received an invite for what he thought would be a "small show" at the Griffith Observatory, and so brought his wife along and just before arriving, the couple partook in a some marijuana smoking and walked in completely high . . . only to see cranes and cameras everywhere.

It left Rogen thinking,  "‘Okay, maybe [we can] slink into the background? You know, like we'll just sit in the back and it's fine. We are not equipped mentally to deal with doing this right now. So we go up to the desk, they give us our tickets, and our seat numbers literally are 1A and 1B. And I'm like, ‘Oh, no! Doesn’t get any bigger!’”

In order to appear as chill and not at all high as possible, the pair spent much of the night enjoying the music and trying to keep a straight face for the cameras. As Rogen admitted, “The whole time I just tried to look cool, which is not a healthy thought to have. And for me at Adele — it was hard for me to look cool because I'm uncomfortable. I'm too close. I feel like Leonardo DiCaprio behind me thinking like, ‘Did Seth Rogen write 'Rolling in the Deep?' Is that why he's so close?’”

He added, "And if, Adele, you're watching this, why did you do that?!  There's no world where I should be in front of Drake. I have no idea why they did that, it's truly wild."

Now, naturally, Rogen shared that he did have an amazing time.

The evening marked Adele's first live performance in six years, and earned over 10 million at-home viewers, in addition to the hand-picked 300-person guest list. It included aerial views of Los Angeles and even a surprise marriage proposal.

"Everyone I know watched it," Rogen said on The Tonight Show. "I think it's the most popular thing I've ever been in... there are people I know who haven't watched my last five movies texting me being like, 'You were amazing, that Adele concert looked incredible.'"
