Rapper is a big fan of duo's 'Bound 2' spoof
James Franco has claimed that Kanye West invited him and Seth Rogen to perform their parody of his song ‘Bound 2’ at his upcoming wedding with Kim Kardashian.
The actors filmed a spoof version of West’s video for the song, which featured the rapper and his fiancée riding a motorbike through the desert while locked in a passionate embrace. The spoof version saw Franco and Rogen kissing and went viral.
Speaking on ABC’s The View, Franco revealed that he and Rogen have received the offer from the couple ahead of their wedding this summer. “Kim loved the video, and we didn’t hear back from Kanye, so we kind of felt like, ‘He’s not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he’s not going to say anything.’ But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone. We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it! He wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding at Versailles.”
However, attendees at the wedding are unlikely to see the live action version of the spoof video: “It would have been awesome for about 20 seconds, but then there would be Seth with his shirt off in front all the Kardashians,” admitted Franco.
Earlier this year it was reported that West is had cancelled an Australian tour in order to finish work on his new album, the follow up to 2013’s ‘Yeezus’.
