Let's be frank – the whole concept of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats was pretty weird from the get-go.

Based on TS Eliot's whimsical collection of cat-based poems Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, written for his godchildren in the 1930s, there are Jellicles, the Heaviside Layer and some of the weirdest names for anthropomorphic felines ever conceived.

Throw in some CGI fur, musical numbers and psychedelic backdrops in Tom Hooper's widely-panned movie adaptation from last year, and it's a stoner's paradise.

Enter Seth Rogen, renowned pot smoker, who stuck it on and then live-tweeted his musings on the movie.

“I’m pretty stoned and watching Cats,” he began. “I’ve never seen the broadway show. It is truly trippy. Am I supposed to know what a Jellicle is? They’ve said it 200,000 times but I don’t know what’s happening haha.”

And away he went... (caution, there is some robust language ahead).

Rogen is not the first to purposely experience the movie while impaired.

Following its release, a rash of screenings were attended by cinema-goers on magic mushrooms.

The movie, which was critically mauled and lost its studio in the region of $100 million, recently swept the board at the Razzies.

It won Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actress for Rebel Wilson, Worst Supporting Actor for James Corden, Worst Director for Tom Hooper and Worst Screenplay for Hooper and Lee Hall.
