James Franco and Seth Rogen Win for Recreating Bound 2

Kanye West released the Bound 2 video last week and everyone realized that Old Kanye’s dead, our diva’s gone. The video was just awful. However, diamonds can come from coal and James Franco and Seth Rogen have blessed us all. They recreated the video shot by shot and it’s nothing but perfection, hilarity and the best thing you’ll see this week. Check it out below:

Yes. Just… YES. This video truly shows how utterly ridiculous Kanye’s was because they did NOTHING different. The folks at BuzzFeed even did a post where you can see the stills side-by-side. Except I can actually stomach to watch this. Also, I am here for hairy Seth Kardashian and moody Kanye Franco.

But you know Mr. West is somewhere throwing a tantrum about people not getting his artistry and his genius. Or maybe he’ll surprise us all and not take himself so seriously and laugh. Because THIS is hilarious:

So how many times have you watched this vid? What do you think Kanye’s feeling right now?

P.S. I love that so many people sent me the link to this vid. Y’all are partially why I’m posting about it so you can know that yes indeed I saw the awesomeness. spread if far and wide (PAUSE). Tweet

    I CANNOT. I didn’t even watch the first video but now I know I don’t need too. There are horses? Why is there a bird in flight? Mountains, word?

    This video made me less uncomfortable than the original version. I’d say that’s a win.

    Thank you so much for posting, I am one of the many who sent it to you and you summed it up perfect, a diamond from coal. I have watched this video at least 5 times today and it gets better each time.

    T E A R S!!! This is just the best thing for this slow moving Monday!

    I loved James Franco and Seth Rogen anyway, but now it’s like a KIMYE-type love…JUST CRAZY!

    Kanye is somewhere having a cow…and Kim is trying to calm him! hahahaha

    Jesus is now laughing right along with us all! 🙂

    I could not stand to watch the entire Kanye video – but I watched the entire spoof with Franco and Rogen! Hilarious! I love how Franco constantly stroked Rogenś hairy back!

  8. November 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I went on Twitter to ask if you had seen it and saw this post. Ridiculousness at it’s best.

    How could you NOT like this video? James stroking the fur on Seth’s back, that looks more like a hairy hybrid of animal fur and white guy pubic hair <—-Yeah, I said it.
    Anyway: James and Seth: 1, Yeezus: *donut hole*

    Interesting. Seth portrays sexual attraction for Franco much more believably than Kimmy does for Kanye 😐

    I thought of you as soon as I saw this. I screamed. I hollered. I cried. I just watched This Is The End yesterday so waking up to this… man look…. They are my new boyfriends. We all go together.

    Well Kim posted that she thought it was funny. I’m sure Kanye was standing over her shoulder as she posted that tweet. If not he’ll probably get back at her by making her wear something like that horrible couch dress she wore when she was pregnant.

    In his interview, Kanye said he was making the video like white trash BS so I think Franco and Seth managed to bring out what he was getting at. I found it funny for about the first minute and then I was over it and it was more like, “ha!”

    Who knows what Kanye is thinking.
