Vancouver, meet Ceph Rogen – your new celebrity octopus.
Ok, if you need a refresher on what this all means, and how this octopus was actually named in honour of Seth Rogen, let’s rewind.
Recently, the Vancouver Aquarium announced that it needed the public’s help to name it’s newest cephalopod-in-residence.

The Vancouver Aquarium announced that there were two finalists to choose from: Ceph Rogen and Octavia.
And (with no surprise) Ceph Rogen was the winner, with 90% of the vote.
You know you’ve made it when your hometown names an octopus after you. Hopefully, Seth will pay a visit to Ceph soon.
