Perhaps you weren’t one of the millions of American heroes who made The Interview Sony’s most successful digital release yet. Perhaps you don’t want to pay American dollars to see it. You’re in luck because Seth Rogen livetweeted the film last night.

The marketing push behind The Interview is a puzzle we’re all still putting together, but Rogen’s tweets were a throwback to a simpler time: to, say, a month ago, when Sony hadn’t been hacked and we all blissfully livetweeted our favorite shows. Were we ever so young?

If you read Rogen’s tweets out of sequence, they turn into a sort of stoner poetry, much like North Korea’s missives to the U.S.
