James Franco and Seth Rogen Remade Kanye West's Ridiculous "Bound 2" Video Shot-For-Shot

James Franco and Seth Rogen Remade Kanye West's Ridiculous "Bound 2" Video Shot-For-Shot

Nov 25, 2013

Shot-for-shot remakes are largely redundant and unnecessary. Unless they're done for comedic effect, such as when you recreate a music video with a very hairy, shirtless Seth Rogen filling in for a topless Kim Kardashian. This is the case for a funny shot-for-shot remake of Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video starring James Franco in West's part and Rogen as the rapper's reality-show-star fiancee and baby mama. The audio is still the same, but now you've got the Pineapple Express duo making out on a motorcyle. It's less NSFW, even though there are also boobs in this version. It's just that they're Rogen's manboobs. 

Franco and Rogen are currently making the comedy feature The Interview, and this parody was done during their downtime on the set. Obviously they have a lot of it, but they are putting the breaks to good use. Surprisingly it's not just some cheap sweded version either. The remake has all the same video effects, though some of you may wish they'd done some CGI airbrushing of Rogen's back, too. Good luck getting that image out of your head for the rest of the day.

Watch the redo below, but be warned that this the version of the song with explicit lyrics, and then check out the original underneath.
