James Franco & Seth Rogen Made A Shot-For-Shot Remake of Kim & Kanye’s ‘Bound 2′

James Franco Seth Rogen Bound 2
WATCH: James Franco & Seth Rogen - 'Bound 3'

If you’ve never really liked Seth Rogen or James Franco, now’s a good time to rethink that stance because here’s their shot-for-shot remake of Kanye West‘s “Bound 2″ video where he bangs a topless Kim Kardashian while riding a motorcycle. I also want to point out that Photo Boy’s first reaction was, “We should’ve made this,” because one time he told me had a dream about my penis. That’s the only way to explain that.

Just in case it wasn’t clear how perfectly they nailed it:


  1. Balls Mcgee

    God damn brilliant. 11/10. True art right here.

  2. Bubba

    My boner is so confused, but my heart says “let it loose”.

  3. It’s like there’s no air *tears*
    I haven’t seen the original because I still have morals and I want to keep my eyes, but if this is identical to it then Kanye has officially been Kardashianized.
    Junk store rapper.

    • I think you might be right. I think his association with that coven of hags has caused a 180 degree turn in the public’s perception of him. He was always arrogant and largely insufferable, but people still appreciated his musical talent. Critics still loved his albums. But putting a baby in the Cleopatra of modern day fame-whores, and his newly militant “I’m a slave” persona, has done a LOT to let those that wanted to dismiss him to do so. He’s rapidly becoming a parody that no one takes seriously.

  4. Funny shit. Maybe some clever editor out there can but both videos side by side so we can see the uncanny resemblance between the 2.

  5. If these two wanted a Twitter war well now they’ve got one!. Ask Jimmy Kimmel what to do/ when Yeezy-Mania runs wild on YOU!!!!

  6. Right now I’m strangely turned on by the sight of Seth Rogen’s back hair.

  7. I’m just going to say it. Seth Rogan has better boobs than Kim.

  8. Wait, so this is two separate videos?

  9. Glinny

    Franko and Rogan just made this pagan’s Christmas.

    When asked what method James Franco used to get in character to play Kanye West he replied: What do you mean, method used?

    That being said… this was just made so those two dudes could french-kissed on camera, right?

  12. I would say who has time for that, but that’s a lie, I’ve got 20-30 minutes. I do like the first 30 seconds on mute. Half dome FTW.

    Franco does alright as Kanye, but Rogen nails the Kim face.

    …while this is not UNfunny, it really is NOT that funny either. Certainly not clever. The original was just asking to be parodied by virtue of its terribly low budget “green-screen” effects…the same low budget effects that makes it terribly easy to parody shot for shot. Franco is not remotely amusing in it, and Rogen ONLY because he is a fat ugly man portraying a fat ugly woman. Fucking lame. Oh well, 13 year old boys will eat it up.

      …yeah fuck the original kanye one is WAAAAY funnier.

        Are you really in a position to be calling anyone a cynical cunt, fish? ;)

        The original video Kanye’s *obviously* trolling. The song is bad and the production is terrible – static camera shots with cheesy stock footage backgrounds and AE-special stretch/blur background/defocus/bloom effects. Anyone with an ounce of nouse could have shat the original video out in less than half a day (shot *and* edited).

        A multimillionaire musician with a fame whore going for bargain basement video production? Fuck no, not unless its one giant joke.

        Fast forward to Seth Rogen and James Franco. Two of the unfunniest comedians around at the moment doing close to an *exact* replication of the original video. Either the joke was lost on them or they’re cynically exploiting the fact that the joke was lost on so many other people. Their version relies on a naked-hairy-tubby-man for humour… nothing but more mediocrity coming out of their factory.

        The sad thing is that there are enough dense people around to have taken the original at face value to find humour in this “parody” when it’s really just running your nails down a chalkboard for the second time. Maybe you fall into that category.

        Cynical enough for you?

        …wholly crap you just said what I was trying to say but so much better!
        Actually, one of the funniest things about the original is the simulated bumps in the road. It gives it a totally false sense of movement that makes Kanye look suuuuuper lame. It’s THAT kind of thing that can’t outdo the original (and they didn’t even try).
        Kanye MADE the video to cause a rukus, and these 2 clowns simply took the bait (and we are too stupid to realize).

    • P.T.S. Potential Trouble Source

      I’m 39 and I found it pretty funny.

    • eatme

      …meh, it’s like all the “Friday” parody videos that were made: who the fuck needs a parody when the original is already so funny.

    • Bonky

      I’m 52 and think this video is brilliant. I don’t like Franco and couldn’t give
      a shit about Rogan, but this is fucking brilliant. I hope Kanye loses his
      fucking mind over it.

    Seth Rogen was way more believable than Kim.

  15. Reggie

    100% better,
    This is funny on SO many levels!

  16. jal

    For some reason I sat here and watched both of these videos and had to listen to that shit song twice. Franco and Rogen definitely make a hotter couple.

  17. LMAO is so awesome they did better than kanye and kim LOL! kanye and kim keep us laughing 2 total big jokes!! Guess kanye so piss he is turnning white LOL!

  18. The only way to explain Kanye’s relationship with Kim is as an ironic piece of performance art. Literal transcription of Kanye’s brain: “See, unh, son? I’m Yeezus, and I can love the trashiest ho’ on the plann-uht, unh, and make it real even though it can’t be. It’s like turning water into wine, only bettah.” And the only appropriate way for the cosmos to respond is with this: the second most self-involved star on the planet standing in “Yeezus’s” place. It’s as if the universe is saying to Kanye: nope, you’re just a self-absorbed twit. It’s perfect.

    I was on the fence about Franco and Rogen. Didn’t hate them, didn’t love them. But between This Is The End, where they were totally unafraid of looking like complete asshats, and the Franco Roast, which was edgy and funny without being a fucking painful evisceration of others, and now this video, I am board. These guys are funny and getting better with age. AWESOME.

  20. I guess someone has to state the obvious: James Franco is a better dancer than Kanye. And Seth Rogen is sexier than Kim.

  22. Cock Dr

    Check out Seth’s big bulging moobs.

  23. Mr. Awesomepants

    Still a better love story than Twilight.

  24. Mr Big

    Hey, Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a horse!

  25. Deacon Jones

    Everyone’s jumping on the wagon! Love it!

    Love it how these two narcissistic fucks are reduced to a punch line! Let lighting strike me down if these two are still together in a year

  26. Bonky

    What’s really messed up about all of this is that Kris Jenner will
    somehow think this is a positive thing, because people are still
    talking about Kim and Kanye, so she will be proud and twitter
    about it.

  27. Franco was ok. Rogan nailed it.

  28. i’m glad nobody else was in the room with me… i just cried a little. so beautiful.

  29. LMAO I usually hate these two, well Franco mostly, Rogaine is tolerable but this is some funny ass shit. Well done.

  30. Swearin

    I just watched these synced up in time perfectly, and I could…not…stop…laughing. Unfortunately, I find Kim hot in this, but juxtaposed against Seth Rogan, I think it evened things out.

    And my god, this song is terrible.

  31. Anyone that thinks the original was Kanye’s self-aware attempt at self-mockery has no fucking idea who they’re dealing with or what they’re talking about. That is NOT something ‘Kanye to the’ does.

  32. I am so oddly turned on by this video. I don’t know what that says about me.

    (can we please bring this back in 2014?)
