James Franco and Seth Rogen Parody Kanye's 'Bound 2' Video

11/26/2013 at 08:15 AM EST

When Kanye West's video for "Bound 2" came out earlier this month, it did so with typical Kanye bombast: Footage of wild horses, gratuitous green-screen use and Kim Kardashian topless on a motorcycle.

Like nearly everything Kanye does, it was also ripe for parody, and that's where James Franco and Seth Rogen come in.

"Bound 3 (Vague)" isn't what you'd call "high-concept." It's a shot-for-shot mimicry of Kanye's notorious video, only this time Franco plays Kanye and – you guessed it – Seth Rogen plays Kim.

And yes, they make out.



While Franco's Kanye-oke (a term we've trademarked) is pretty impressive, we have to say the video's real appeal is Rogen's Kim-icry (also trademarked) – he tosses his non-existent tresses and vamps for the camera so accurately, we're tempted to call it his best performance since Knocked Up.

Kanye has yet to comment, though Kim, for her part, seems to have a sense of humor about the parody: She retweeted the video last night.





Here's the original, in case you're interested in a side-by-side comparison. (And why wouldn't you be?)
