Michael Cera talked about the scene
Michael Cera and Evan Goldberg talked about the scene in an interview with GQ. Evan Goldberg said,
“Michael said to all of us, ‘I’m going to ask her if I can slap her butt for real. I think it will make the joke way funnier.’ And we were like, ‘Yeah, totally go for it. Go nuts.’ And so he asked permission to do the butt slap, and she said, ‘You can do it, but I’m coming back way harder.’ She hit him the first time, the second time, and we were all laughing, and Michael was like, ‘Oh, it hurts.’ And she was laughing and he was laughing. And the third time I think she cupped his ear, and it messed him up.”
Michael Cera also added,
“It was like a flash bomb went off. There was a high-pitched tone ringing in my ear, and I didn’t know where I was.”
This is the End is available to stream on Netflix.
