It looks like that Pineapple Express sequel fans have been clamoring for is finally coming to a theater near you!

At least that's the impression one gets at the start of this trailer featuring Seth Rogen and James Franco reprising their roles from their first stoner flick.

Ah, but alas, it turns out it's nothing more than just an elaborate April Fools' Day joke to help promote the duo's actual new movie, This Is the End.

Sure, we're a bit bummed it's a fake. But we can't help be amused by the clip nonetheless, especially when it also includes the likes of Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.

Meanwhile, This Is the End, Rogen's directorial debut is due out this summer.
