CATEGORIES Movie NewsLast week, Kanye West's "Bound 2" video hit the internet and became an instant sensation for all the wrong reasons. Adapted from one of the most memorable tracks on West's recent, totally brilliant album "Yeezus," the video was an unmitigated disaster, defined largely by cheesy green-screen composites and West's topless fiancée, Kim Kardashian, very eager to prove that she's already lost the baby weight. It was the kind of thing that didn't need a parody since it was already so goofy.
Still, leave it to James Franco and Seth Rogen to go ahead and create a shot-for-shot remake of the video, with Franco filling in for the West role and (our eyes!) Rogen standing in for topless Kim. It's probably the funniest, most bizarre thing you'll see all day. You're welcome.
This week Franco can be seen as villainous smalltime crime boss Gator in the surprisingly satisfying thriller "Homefront," and the dynamic duo are currently filming "The Interview," which Rogen is also co-writing and co-directing. (The disclaimer for the video says that the pair got the idea while shooting "The Interview.") Also, this really made us want to watch "This Is The End" again.
