It was the music video parody that “won the Internet” yesterday: James Franco and Seth Rogen’s “Bound 2” remake that had everyone giggling during their lunch breaks, a welcome respite from whatever everyone’s 9-to-5 is on this short pre-Thanksgivukkah work week.
Seth channeled a topless Kim Kardashian, straddling James on a motorcycle a la Kanye West, and the reality TV star herself admitted it was a visual riot.
“You nailed it!!! Sooo funny!” she tweeted at Seth. She then contributed to the hashtag trend, including a #Bound3 shout-out with a link to the parody on YouTube.
Seth, grateful Kim had a sense of humor about it, responded, “thanks! Some of those positions were really uncomfortable. That sh*t is harder than it looks.”
History has proven that her boyfriend doesn’t find jokes at his expense all that humorous (just ask Jimmy Kimmel), so the question on everyone’s mind is whether Kanye “I was the class clown that always kept you laughin’” West approved of the mock-u-video.
According to Kim, he did, adding in an exchange to Seth, “Kanye says what’s up! He loves u guys! He laughed so hard at this.”
