Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen have remade Kanye West’s NSFW ‘Bound 2’ video, shot for shot.
Their deadpan version of the promo sees Franco playing West and Rogen taking on the role of his topless fiancee, Kim Kardashian. Like the original, the film features horses, waterfalls and eagles and sees Rogen writhing around naked, kissing Franco on a motorbike that is travelling through Utah’s Monument Valley via a green screen effect. Click above to watch the parody, which is called ‘Bound 3’ and was shot during downtime on the Freaks and Geeks pair’s new movie, The Interview.
Last week, Kanye West criticised US president Barack Obama for calling him a “jackass”. Obama first used the word to describe West after he famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV VMA’s in 2009, and used the term again in April last year when he admitted that he preferred Jay Z.
In a new interview, West admitted that Obama’s criticism of him had summed up “how the world felt” at the time but went on to say: “I don’t care if somebody the President or not. I care about thoughts, and how you helpin’ people, and what you bring to the world. My music brings joy to people. What I create brings joy to people, and I’m about people. Me, I’m not about me. I’m about, ‘I got an idea that people gonna like’.”
West’s ‘Yeezus’ tour is currently taking place in North America. His first solo tour in five years, it will run until December 23.
