A senator saying "knocked up" alone makes this worth the watch.

If you liked Seth Rogen before, you'll probably love him now. Yesterday, Rogen testified before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health, & Human Services about the urgent need for more funding for Alzheimer's research.

His opening statement, which explained that his interest in the disease came about when his mother-in-law was diagnosed, was by turns funny and touching. Seeming (appropriately) a little nervous, Rogen joked about marijuana legalization, his own man-childness, and House of Cards. He also shared the challenge of watching his mother-in-law decline, knowing there was no cure.

Rogen went on to describe the work of his organization Hilarity for Charity, which hosts variety shows to raise money for Alzheimer's research, while also raising awareness of the disease among young people.
