James Franco and Seth Rogen ought to get bored more often. Or maybe they shouldn’t, because the result can be simultaneously hilarious and, well, disturbing — if you find the thought of Kim Kardashian with hair on her back disturbing.
“While on the set of their movie, The Interview, James Franco and Seth Rogen felt inspired to recreate their favourite new video,” reads a title card on their parody of Kanye West’s topless-Kardashian, wannabe masterpiece video for Bound 2. Shot. For. Shot.”
And that they do, in a video posted on Monday morning on Facebook.
With Franco playing the motorcycle-riding Kanye role, Rogen is left with nothing to do but strip down his hairy top half and mount the bike — and, by association, Franco.
The passion from the original remains remarkably intact.
Surprisingly, the main difference is that Rogen, unlike Kardashian, gets to keep his nipples intact.
The video, which features no nudity beyond Rogen’s spectacularly hairy topless display, is loaded up with profanity, in true Kanye West fashion. If you are prepared for the language, go to YouTube now. There’s also a family-friendly version.
