Since I've apparently included "People Making Fun of Kanye West" on my regular Tucson Weekly beat (along with beer news and wanting to self-immolate whenever I see something new about Amy's Baking Company, of course), I feel it's only proper that we take a look at one of the few YouTube videos to make me startle myself with laughter: James Franco and Seth Rogen's reinterpretation of Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video.
"Bound 2" features West riding a motorcycle
in front of a greenscreen through scenic locations while his fiance/heir-to-his-spawn Kim Kardashian straddles him, topless. (For the record, the video reaches Peak Awkward when West rhetorically asks the listener "have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?" as the mother of his child looks into his eyes. Love!)
Even if you don't generally dig Franco or Rogen, their video's version features far less "Actin' Hard An' Shit While Rapping" and more "Seth Rogen's Bedroom Eyes/Hairy Back," which is a welcome change.
