Famed actor Seth Rogen on Tuesday unveiled with typical comic fanfare the trailer for his new Christmas film.

The movie “was made by Jews… and opens on Thanksgiving,” Rogen pointed out on Twitter.

The Night Before tells the tale of three “ride or die homies” celebrating one last debauchery-filled Christmas Eve reunion before they become too busy to keep up their annual tradition. In an effort to make the night as memorable as possible, they set out to find the “Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.”

Rogen plays the only Jew in the trio, and a conspicuous Jew at that. Throughout the trailer he is seen wearing a holiday sweater with a large Star of David embroidered onto the front. His two buddies in the film are played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.
