Watch James Franco and Seth Rogen’s Hilarious Parody of Kanye West’s Music Video For 'Bound 2'

Last week, Kanye West unveiled his (unintentionally) hilarious new music video for 'Bound 2,' featuring the rapper straddling Kim Kardashian on a motorcycle. Now, pals James Franco and Seth Rogen have parodied the video. Shot for shot. It is outrageous.

James Franco has stretched himself in order to portray some wild characters in his day, from a tattooed fugazi crime lord named Alien in Spring Breakers to a meth dealer named Gator in Homefront, in theaters Friday.

This may be the biggest stretch yet.

In a video posted to Seth Rogen’s Facebook page Monday morning, Franco and his longtime pal Seth Rogen made a hilarious parody of Kanye West’s recent music video for “Bound 2,” featuring Franco as West and (a hairy) Rogen as Kim Kardashian.

A message introducing the video reads: “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 indeed, it is a shot-for-shot remake of West’s ode to Kardashian, from Franco rapping and blue steel-ing to the camera in West’s multi-layered flannel getup to Franco and a shirtless, grizzled Rogen dry-humping on top of a motorcycle. The co-stars of Pineapple Express and Freaks and Geeks have really outdone themselves this time. It has to be seen to be believed:
