Seth Rogen Says Jack in the container Pineapple express ad now not regarding movie - TMZ

Jack in the container is getting able for 4/20 with a bit assist from a pressure of weed that Seth Rogen made famous -- however they do not seem to have run it with the aid of him ... 'cause he is pissed.

Seth fired away Sunday after JITB posted an advert earlier in the week promotion a new milkshake they may be rolling out ahead of Wednesday's herb-stuffed holiday ... during which they explicitly dub their beverage as Pineapple categorical shakes.

The ad also touts their love of "timber" ... and their pricing's at $4.20. So yeah, they're all in on the toke shaggy dog story -- something the speedy food chain has leaned into complicated in fresh years.

Anyway, Seth answered to their digital industrial, writing ... "This has nothing to do with the film Pineapple express. We had nothing to do with this and weren't requested if we wanted our movie associated with this."

He adds, "and obviously if we did a tie in, it could ought to be to promote those bizarre f***ing diarrhea inducing taco issues they promote."

Of course, Seth is referring to his 2008 cult comedy classic of the same name -- which (fun reality) really spurred the real-life weed pressure ... as a minimum in response to Seth and co. apparently, it didn't exist before they came together with their made-up bud ... in order that they do seem to have a claim to it, at the least colloquially.

On the legal conclusion, it be unclear if Seth has "Pineapple express" trademarked or copyrighted. The fact he is not traumatic they yank the advert is kinda telling -- ya gotta figure if he definitely didn't desire the name associated with Jack in the container, he'd invoke distinctive verbiage.

At any expense, Seth certainly desires to create far between their campaign and his flick. Jack himself has yet to reply ... pleasing, seeing that they may be very "on-line" as a brand.
