“I have a pretty crazy hypothesis that Seth was kidnapped by a shady ceramicist, who has him tied up, completely incapacitated, posting pics on Seth’s Twitter,” the user, @chriscanbefunny, jokingly alleged. Well, that’s one way to look at it. But don't worry. Go ahead and take a deep breath because the funny guy has since come out of hiding…

But while the Superbad actor might just be the latest victim of a hilarious prank, this actually isn't the first time.

Stay tuned. Something tells us there's more fun where that came from. And please: someone go check on Mr. Rogen.
