Over the summer, Seth Rogan became the voice of Vancouver and Toronto’s transit systems, and now he is leaving another mark on the west coast city. After an online poll, The Vancouver Aquarium decided to name an octopus after him.
Please vote for me to have an octopus named after me at the aquarium I grew up going to. https://t.co/3axHKAryjo

The Vancouver Aquarium hosted a contest online to decide what to name their new giant Pacific octopus after narrowing it down to only two names: “Ceph Rogan” (short for cephalopod) or “Octavia.” After Rogen heard word that he may have been getting an octopus named after him, he urged his fans to vote for “Ceph Rogan.”
With a landslide vote, Rogan was successful. The question is, will Ripley’s Aquarium follow suit and name their next aquatic creature after the famous comedian?
