James Franco And Seth Rogen Spoof Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ [Video]By: Tobias Roth - November 25, 2013
The comedic genius of James Franco and Seth Rogen has struck again, and this time they have chosen to spoof the new music video from Kanye West.
The song that the comedy pair have spoofed is called “Bound 2,” and features a very sexual video involving him and his fiancee Kim Kardashian.
The video features a nude Kim Kardashian who is on a motorcycle, while being straddled by Kanye West throughout the song.
It is not clear whether he was attempting to produce a serious song with this effort or not, but in any case, James Franco and Seth Rogen certainly had fun making their own version of the song.
The two of them are currently working on another film together, The Interview, which is set to be released on October 10, 2014.
It is a well-known fact that apart from their film careers, the pair of actors are also great friends in real life. Most recently, they were seen together in This Is The End, a film which paired them with all of their other buddies including Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel.
For a complete run-down of the detailed comparisons, MTV put together a description of what Kim and Seth did in comparison to one another, and included a long list of GIFs to compare the hilarious spoof to the original music video.
In an effort to give a special offering to their fans, and clearly have a lot of fun themselves, Franco and Rogen decided to take a break from filming to recreate the latest video from hip hop star Kanye West. It features James Franco lip syncing the words as if he were singing them to Seth Rogen too, which makes things even more interesting.
Check out the hilarious spoof of Kanye’s new single.
The comedy pair teamed up to recreate the video shot for shot, and this included Franco straddling a bare-chested Seth Rogen, and even a kiss between the two, which was captured and posted on Franco’s social media outlets.
James Franco has previously played gay characters in films such as Milk, and has been open about his sexuality throughout his career, making this video not seem too out of the ordinary. James Franco and Seth Rogen are good friends, and are obviously very comfortable with each other to be able to act the way that they did during the video, while kissing and straddling one another.
There is no word yet on what Kanye thinks, but Kim seems to be in favor of the video, finding Seth’s impression of her very funny.
For anyone that hasn’t seen the original video yet, take a look in order to compare to the one that Seth Rogen and James Franco just released.
