Last week, Kanye West released the video for his single âBound 2,â featuring his fiancee, Kim Kardashian, riding a motorcycle topless.
The rapperâs music video seems to inspire Seth Rogen and BFF James Franco, who apparently got bored on the set of their new film, The Interview, and decided to spice things up by recreating Kanye West’s music video for “Bound 2.”
Posted to Rogenâs Facebook page Monday morning, the video, âBound 3â began with a message: âWhile on the set of their movie, âThe Interview,â James Franco & Seth Rogen felt inspired to recreate their favorite new video. Shot. For. Shot.â
Then, as of this afternoon, Rogenâs post was taken down, the reason not specified. A YouTube user also posted the video and after being made private for some time, itâs back up.
“Hey @KimKardashian & @kanyewest check out what me and @JamesFrancoTV did on the set of @TheInterview. #Bound3,” Rogen, 31, tweeted at the A-list couple. Franco, 35, also tweeted, “#bound3 #sethrogen #love — a little video Seth and I made in our down time.”
In the video, Franco, 35, takes on the role of West, rapping in a multi-layered flannel and driving the motorcycle, while Rogen, 31, is Kardashian, who ends up topless and on Francoâs lap by the middle of the video. Rogen and Franco didn’t skimp on any of the details, brilliantly mimicking not only the video’s background but the lustful expressions of West and Kardashian.
However, the real star of the video turned out to be Rogen’s extremely hair back, which is featured prominently at several points in the clip.
The bearded funnyman impressively recreates Kim’s sexy smolder by licking his lips and blinking femininely. The Emmy-nominated Canadian even reclines and stretches his arms out over the vibrating motorcycle just like the 33-year-old reality star.
Meanwhile, Franco puts his Oscar-nominated acting skills to good use scowling and lip-syncing along with the 36-year-old rapper.
However, unlike the couple of 19 month, James and Seth just celebrated their 10-year bromance anniversary on November 15. The comedy duo have appeared together in âThis is the Endâ, âPineapple Expressâ, and âFreaks and Geeksâ.
Actually, after James Franco and Seth Rogan hilariously spoofed Kanye West’s sexually charged music video, Kim Kardashian has taken to Twitter to give it her seal of approval.
The 33-year-old even retweeted funnyman Seth’s link to the YouTube clip, titled âBound 3â, to her over 18 million followers.
âYou nailed it!!! Sooo funny!â she wrote on her social networking page on Monday.
While Kim has managed to see the funny side of the parody, which sees Seth dry-humping James as he rides a motorcycle just like Kanye, the notoriously hotblooded rapper has yet to react.
Most recently, the âTouch The Skyâ star blew his top at late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel after he took offence to a comedy skit aimed at him. Kanye launched into an extraordinary Twitter attack on Kimmel, upon finding himself the subject of one of his late night show’s spoof videos, reports the Daily Mail.
