Cool Videos: James Franco and Seth Rogen do a shot-for-shot remake of Kanye's Bound 2 music video

Nov. 25, 2013by: Paul Shirey

There's nothing like a little shot-for-shot remake, particularly when it pokes fun at someone like Kanye West. The outspoken rapper's latest music video for his song "Bound 2" has gotten a very unique and "faithful" re-enactment from stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, who meticulously recreate the motorcycle rides, landscapes, running horses, and sweet, sweet sensual love of the the main "characters" in the video. I'd expect nothing less from the THIS IS THE END actors, who filmed this little ditty while shooting thier latest film THE INTERVIEW.

"One good girl is worth a thousand bitches":

THE INTERVIEW, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and starring Rogen, James Franco, and Lizzy Caplan is set to hit theaters on October 14, 2014.

Those guys have a lot of fun, but that has to be the worst song of all time.

Seriously, that is the worst song (can you call it a song, or a 6 minute long speech proving how big of a douche Kanye is) of all time. I don't understand how this guy, or any "rapper' is popular these days. Rock is dead somehow and this shit lives on. Pretty soon, music will be dead, but maybe that's for the best.

If you want to find good music in any genre I suggest you turn off your radio and listen to stuff that you can find on the internet/music stores/itunes. Music is far from dead, you just have to expand your tracklist.

I'm gonna let you finish but..,

Let me start by saying that this song and especially the video are AWFUL and Kanye West is a selfoborbed piece of shit but I'm sorry he was a pioneering musical genius before he went nuts! I'm sure I'm going to get trashed for this but his earlier solo stuff was really groundbreaking (Through the Wire is a good example) and he was one of the best producers in the industry before becoming a solo artist. I agree with everyone that he has become an egomaniacal, delusional asshole but I need to

I agree with everyone that he has become an egomaniacal, delusional asshole but I need to defend his work as a musician. But yes Rogan and Franco nailed this awful, self indulgent video and they are perhaps my favorite comedy duo in Hollywood.

A musical GENIUS?...I disagree with you times a trillion. All he does is sing, well just speaks lyrics in a normal voice, and quite awful as well. And I just listened to Through the Wire and it was not good at all.

Kanye

Mr. West has put out way more than his share of bad music, this song included. This song is horrible, one of the worst I have ever heard from a mainstream "artist" and I use that term loosely. I am glad to see someone taking a piss at it.

AWESOME

A million times better than the original. That song is a lazy, tuneless piece of shit and this made it so much better to watch. And Seth has less back hair than Kim, which is nice.

That Shii cray

I saw the original and honestly thought it was a friggin joke. Props to Franco and Rogen for making fun of this stupid video. Rogen gets Kim's expressionless, brainless,squinty eyed, nobody's home look just right! Kanye West= overrated

Ummm. wow. i guess is my opinion of this. Now I wanna go check the original video just to see if its that bad, which probably is since this was a shot for shot recreation. Props to Rogen and Franco.

Way better than the original...

I don't know how the fuck is Kanye that famous with a video like this, and a song like this... Thanks to Seth Rogen and James Franco for making us laugh with this.

Well to be fair, it's not one of his better songs (or videos)

izzy2024...Kanye sucks at singing. It just sounds like he's talking, just saying the words, not singing them.

Bob_Loblaw while I'm not defending him, that probably has a lot to do with the fact that Kanye is a rapper, not a singer.

CMontyLoveMovies, I know, but many rappers can still sound cool, actually put something into their rapping, their voice, but he doesn't at all. His sounds so bland.
