If we be could anything at this very moment, it would be a fly on Kanye West’s dressing room wall. Just days after he unveiled his paradigm-shifting music video for “Bound 2,” starring he and fiance Kim Kardashian, James Franco and Seth Rogen have made jest of the art piece with “Bound 3″. We’re sitting tight hoping the short will open the floodgates for another Yeezus Twitter tirade (#NoDisrespectToBenAffleck).
Now, we can’t pretend that we didn’t like the original, it was the brainchild of fashion visionary Nick Knight (he shot the couple for L’Officiel Hommes in March) after all, and what kind of editors would we be if we didn’t try to see the genius in it (at least as far as our mortal brain capacity would allow)? However, after watching Franco and Rogen get amorous in front of the green screen utopia that had formerly housed Kimye and one quivering motorcycle, we’ve decided Ye’s latest offering was just begging to be spoofed. We thank Franco and Rogen for bringing us to our senses — and looking fantastic while doing so.
Not only do we get to see Rogen in the buff, but also observe Franco spitting rhymes while wearing the very ripped tie-dye T-shirt and low-hanging flannels Kanye dons in the original. The couple, who simulate lovemaking more powerfully than we could have ever imagined, have a palpable chemistry you just can’t fake. They’ve made it to Thanksgiving, so our fingers are crossed they’ll make it to Christmas.
