If you haven’t checked out James Franco and Seth Rogen’s hilarious spoof of Kanye West’s “Bound 2” music video featuring Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian, you need to put that on the top of your to-do list RIGHT NOW. Seriously, your boring work emails and recap of Monday Night Football can wait. Go watch the video. I’ll wait.
Does your stomach hurt from laughing? Watching Rogen’s back hair blow in the wind while Franco raps away, maintaining that constant angry-Kanye look, is SO. DAMN. FUNNY. And you know what makes it even better? While we’re all cracking up, somewhere, Kanye is probably not.
Okay, so if for some crazy reason you didn’t watch the video (what is wrong with you?), let me break it down. The parody, which has Franco playing West’s part and Rogen stepping in as Kim Kardashian, was shot to mimic Yeezy’s sexy video, right down to the galloping horses and the steamy kiss on the motorcycle. Before the video starts, we see this message: “While on the set of their movie, The Interview, James Franco & Seth Rogen felt inspired to recreate their favorite new video. Shot. For. Shot.” And these guys are not kidding, as Rogen’s seductive pose on the bike tells us less than a minute into the video.
It only gets hotter (and funnier) from there, too, with both men playing their roles exactly. While Franco lip-syncs and rides his motorcycle, a shirtless Rogen straddles the bike, facing Franco and trying his best to look sexy. There’s hair tossing, eyelash batting, some caressing, and even an O face or two. The whole thing adds up to 4 minutes and 18 seconds of pure comedy – and genius on Franco and Rogen’s part.
While Kanye West and his Keeping Up With the Kardashians fiancé may not see the brilliance behind the video, the public certainly seems to – there are nearly three million views already. Yesterday, Rogen tweeted a message to the power couple, writing, “Hey @KimKardashian & @kanyewest check out what me and @JamesFrancoTV did on the set of @TheInterview. #Bound3.” No response yet, from Kanye or Kim, but with what happened when Jimmy Kimmel mocked the rapper, I fully expect some enraged and semi-delusional tweets from Yeezy, our favorite misunderstood genius.I can’t wait!
So what did you think of the “Bound 2” parody? And what’s Kanye going to say about it? Do you think Kim will think it is funny? Tell us in the comments!
