(ABC4) – Comedy fans, it’s a very special day as McLovin, the iconic “Superbad” character turns 41 today!
If you’re a bit confused, McLovin refers to the character played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse in the 2007 American comedy “Superbad.”
Since the film’s debut, June 3 has become known as “McLovin Day” for the film’s stalwart fans.
The iconic Judd Apatow romp stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera and was co-written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The crude humored coming-of-age film became an instant box office and critical success upon its 2007 premiere.
But don’t get it twisted — it’s Mintz-Plasse’s character, Fogell (famously known by the nickname McLovin) who’s celebrating their birthday today.
Ironically, that birthday is also probably not real because it refers to the date stamped on his infamous fake ID card.
In the film, the teenage McLovin hilariously presents his fake Hawaii ID showing a birth date of June 3, 1981, making the teenager the unconvincing ripe age of 25 in the film.
In the past, celebrity fans and film’s cast and crews have honored McLovin’s big day every year with celebratory social media posts every year.
Seth Rogen commemorated the big day by Tweeting, “As always, we must celebrate McLovin day.” He posted a picture of the iconic ID card along with his message.
Big birthday cheers for McLovin, who’s now finally old enough to enter a bar with his real ID. The comedy “Superbad” is also celebrating 15 years since its 2007 debut.
