It's been over a decade since Superbad first came out, but apparently the film is still very relevant. Just a few days ago, a 20-year-old man in Iowa was arrested for possession of a fake ID. As much as people like to deny it, fake IDs really aren't that uncommon, so this shouldn't be big news. What stood out about this case, though, was that the ID was an exact replica of McLovin's from Superbad. Teen arrested with fake "McLovin" ID caught Seth Rogen's attention.
The 20-year-old from Iowa is named Daniel Alfredo Burleson, and when an officer spotted him with a drink in his hand at a bar last Friday and confronted him about it, Burleson admitted to drinking alcohol but refused to show the officer any ID.
Burleson was then taken out of the bar, where he showed officers his real ID, which confirmed that he was underage. When asked to see his fake ID, Burleson denied having one, but while he was thumbing through his wallet, police caught sight of an ID from Hawaii with the name McLovin and DOB 06/03/1981.
When he was confronted about the Hawaii ID, Burleson admitted that he purchased it on Amazon, and according to police, he was visibly intoxicated, had slurred speech, and watery eyes.
Burleson was arrested that same night, charged with public intoxication, possession of a fake ID, possession of alcohol while underage, and being in a bar after 10 p.m. while underage.

"My work here is done," Rogen tweeted on Wednesday morning after reading an article about the incident. Fellow Canadian actor Finn Wolfhard also got in on the Superbad humour, replying, "It was between that and Muhammad," to Rogen's tweet.
