James Franco, Seth Rogen Parody Kim K and Kanye's 'Bound 2' video with 'Bound 3'

Franco and Rogen Parody Kanye with 'Bound 3'
When two pop-culture icons are bored, this is what can happen. James Franco and Seth Rogen, having a bit of down time on the set of their new film project, 'The Interview,' brainstormed a shot-by-shot parody of the Kanye West video, 'Bound 2', appropriately titled, 'Bound 3'. This is not the first parody of a pop-rap title, after Weird Al Yankovic attached his styling's to Coolio's Grammy winning 1995 track 'Gangsta Paradise' with 'Amish Paradise'. Weird Al should be proud.
Kim Kardashian Comes Calling
In a tweet directed to Rogen concerning the parody, Kim Kardashian wrote, ""Nailed it! Sooo funny!" Apropos, as Rogen is parodying Kardashian without pulling any punches. Seth's response was nothing less of an understatement - "Thanks! Some of those positions were really uncomfortable. That shit is harder than it looks." (Admit it- you just read that in Rogen's voice...)
Bound 3 Instant Viral-osity
The original video was posted on Rogen's Facebook Page, and quickly went viral, and the official video has moved to YouTube in order to process the increased traffic. Too bad the KW original isn't worth the web space it's taking up, as then this experiment would have moved toward historic proportions.
