Before I say anything else, please immediately watch and enjoy as James Franco and Seth Rogen parody Kanye West’s “Bound 2.”
There’s been just enough confused, scratched heads surrounding West’s music video “Bound 2” to prove that he knows exactly what he’s doing when it comes to getting the people to talk. Fans aren’t sure if he’s being ironic, or highly esoteric, but no one can argue that considering the video’s viral nature, it’s pretty genius.
What I’m not so sure of is if Yeezy expected as creative (and thorough!) of a response as the one above featuring a shirtless Seth Rogen and a tie-tyed James Franco. I have a lot of respect for those who commit to their vision — you can’t do this half-assed, and team Rogen/Franco really went for it. The reinterpretation is so hilariously bizarre that one can only hope Kanye and Kim view this parody as the highest form of flattery. It’s too good not to.
