Seth Rogen and James Franco have an increasingly perplexing relationship. It's not the homoeroticism. Homoeroticism is actually a pretty common aspect of straight dude relationships, commonly observed when they joke about being gay long enough to grab each other's asses and tweak each other's nipples. You never catch gay dudes doing that shit to each other. That's straight guy behavior all the way.

But I digress. The weird aspect of Rogen and Franco constantly making out and playing house and being naked and painting nudes of each other is their need for us to witness it. Why? Not that it's a big deal or offensive or anything, but I'm really curious about why they're so insistent on all of us knowing how not freaked out they are by the supple flesh of one another.

The reason for all of this.

So, anyway, now they're gonna be doing an episode of the Discovery Channel's Naked & Afraid together. This is ostensibly a promotional tactic for their upcoming movie The Interview, but I don't see what spending several days on camera staring deeply into each other's junk has to do with either North Korea or international espionage. This is clearly a bucket list opportunity seized upon.

Anyway, here's some footage for the upcoming episode. Skip ahead to around the 1:12 mark to skip past all the Kim Kardashian nakedness and get right to the good stuff:
