Kim Kardashian has weighed in on Seth Rogen and James Franco’s “Bound 2” parody.
For those who don’t keep up with the musical styliings of Kanye West, the rapper recently put together a music video for his latest single that featured Kim straddling her husband-to-be on a motorcycle. She also spends a good portion of the video without a shirt.
Not surprisingly, it didn’t take very long for the parodies to come barreling onto the internet. One clip featured Pineapple Express co-stars James Franco and Seth Rogen, the latter of whom decided to take the role of Kim Kardashian. You can feast your eyes on the shot-for-shot remake below.
What did Kanye West’s main squeeze think about Franco and Rogen’s so-called “Bound 3”? Judging from her recent comment on Twitter, the Kardashian adores their send-up of the rapper’s music video.
“Nailed it! Sooo funny!” she tweeted.
Seth Rogen soon thanked Kim Kardashian for retweeting the clip in question. He also took a moment to explain that shooting “Bound 3” was a little harder than some might realize.
“Thanks! Some of those positions were really uncomfortable. That s*** is harder than it looks,” Rogen wrote.
Over seven million people have viewed Kanye West’s “Bound 2” video since it debuted earlier this month. However, Seth Rogen and James Franco’s parody isn’t doing too shabby either; the clip has amassed over one million views since it first arrived. This doesn’t include any unofficial and unauthorized uploads.
If you end up watching West’s video, he’d really prefer if you didn’t watch the it on YouTube. According to the HipHopDX, the rapper isn’t a fan of the website’s player.
“I want everything I do to be presented in an art context, as this is a form of sonic art,” he explained during a listening session over the summer.
“I was an artist originally. I have been in art school since I was 5 years old. I got scholarships to three art schools, Art Institute of Chicago, Saint Xavier, and the American Academy of Art, where I ended up going and I dropped out because I had an assignment where I was supposed to do an ink painting or something, and I would take two weeks to do it, and when I looked at my work, I just felt that I would never be one of the great visual artists of the world.”
