For those that don’t know, Jimmy Kimmel has been in Austin recently, filming his late-night show during South By Southwest. Time to keep Austin weird, people.

Known for his epic viral pranks, Kimmel invited Seth Rogen on his show to take part in a hilarious sequel to HBO’s Austin-based show True Detective. Kimmel takes on the Woody Harrelson role of Marty, with guest Seth Rogen filling the shoes of Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle. Sadly, the pair investigates an unspeakable crime against Daniel Johnston’s famed “Hi How Are You?” frog mural on the Sound Exchange record store in Austin. We shouldn’t say too much more, but Cher and Cyndi Lauper lyrics are in full effect.

Here’s an exclusive sneak preview of True Detective season two.
