One of the most unique and amazing artists working today is rapper and songwriter Kanye West, who despite being for the most part an insufferable douchebag, is a genius and someone that you just can’t help but be amazed by. Kanye has a knack for making anything he touches turn to gold, a trait that has propelled him to the top of his game and beyond, but his latest video called ‘Bound 2′ is causing a lot of head scratching for it’s gratuitous cheesiness.
I won’t lie, he debuted it on Ellen — which is the first red flag — and I instantly thought it was a joke. With the horses running around and the cheesy 90s style green screen background, the video is either a hot mess or the most innovative thing we’ve ever seen which is usually the debate with Kanye.
But Seth Rogen and James Franco, who play up a homo-erotic relationship for giggles, are knifing right through the campy video by producing a shot-for-shot remake of it staring Franco as Kanye and Rogen as Kim Kardashian.
We’ve come to expect hilarious things like this from Rogen and Franco who have managed to become one of the most unlikely comedy duos working today. The stoner buddies roast just about everything — including each other — and they’re clearly not letting all the smoke go to their heads.
Or maybe the are, as the hijinks they come up with never fail to make us laugh, case and point being a shot-for-shot remake of ‘Bound 2′.
