James Franco + Seth Rogen Mock Kanye West’s Video With Kim Kardashian
Let's just say it was bound to happen. The second Kanye West dropped the video for 'Bound 2' -- featuring his racy motorcycle ride with a topless Kim Kardashian -- the countdown to the first parody began.
First out of the gate: James Franco and Seth Rogen! The frequent co-stars ('Pineapple Express,' 'This Is the End,' etc.) use every ounce of their on-screen chemistry to re-enact Kimye's clip in all its wacky, green-screen glory, and the result is glorious! Flannel-shirted Franco mimics West to perfection, and Rogen clearly relishes the role of Kim K. His back hair should get a supporting actor credit.
The clip begins with the following introduction: "While on the set of their movie, The Interview, James Franco & Seth Rogen felt inspired to recreate their favorite new video. Shot. For. Shot."
Their flawless re-creation is hilarious ... not that Kanye will think so. And, oh yeah, the humorless rapper has most likely seen the video by now, because Seth made sure he did via Twitter today. (Note, the tweet was later deleted). He said, "Hey @KimKardashian & @kanyewest check out what me and @JamesFrancoTV did on the set of @TheInterview. #Bound3 http://t.co/yAonN3tauW."
Expect a Kanye ALL CAPS Twitter outburst in 3, 2, 1 ...
