Warning: Major spoilers ahead about the ending of “This Is The End.”
By the time Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Craig Robinson make it to heaven at the end of “This Is The End,” one thing is clear: even after the apocalypse, The Backstreet Boys will always come back.
“When it was kind of mentioned that we might get to work with them, it was across the board: ‘Yes, it has to be them,’” Baruchel told HuffPost Entertainment about the Backstreet Boys’ appearance, a group performance of the hit single “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” that takes place inside the pearly gates of the great beyond. “Our tongues are nowhere near our cheeks when we’re dancing with them. Let there be no mistake: We were so goddamned honored.”
According to Baruchel, 31, the heaven sequence was shot over the course of one day, meaning he, Rogen and Robinson had to learn the Backstreet Boys’ famous dance moves in a short amount of time. Not that it mattered.
