There aren’t many things that make me feel old. Or confused. Or really, really nauseous. But the video (well, and lyrics) for the new Kanye West song, his ode to Baby Mama and Famous-For-Being-Famous Kim Kardashian, Bound 2, does all three of those things. Watch it (or even just the beginning), then come back.
There’s no way around it: This piece of film is the ultimate in Green Screen Cheese. I’m pretty sure that many wind machines were abused in the making of Bound 2. Maybe I’m not hip, but I just don’t understand. Especially the nude motorcyle riding. Or any of it for that matter. My husband rides a motorcycle. I sometimes ride the bike with him. I’ve never ridden backwards. I’m pretty sure it’s not recommended. Nor, despite his urging, have I hopped on naked. Besides the fact that it’s really not all that safe, it’s about 10 degrees colder when the bike gets going. That would make for some chilly body parts.
I’m not the only one who found Bound 2 absurd. Apparently with nothing to do on the set of their new movie, The Interview, besties James Franco and Seth Rogen decided to spoof Kanye’s dubious magnum opus with their frame-by-frame copy, Bound 3. Obviously, Seth Rogen plays Kim, because really, isn’t he the new Will Ferrell? This one, you must watch in its entirety. It’s four minutes long. I recommend waiting until you’ve got 16 minutes so you can watch it four times in a row.
The next question? Who will jump on the bandwagon with Bound 4? According to Zac Efron’s Instagram, it’s him and yep, Seth Rogen (Again. That guy gets around. Shirtless, apparently. Told you…the New Will Ferrell.)
The Caption: Whether you’re a #KanyeWest fan or not, fans are #Bound2 get a kick out of this new still from #ZacEfron and #SethRogen’s film #NeighborsMovie Check out all the neighborly shenanigans when the comedy hits theaters next May! #uhhuhhoney Sadly, though, it turns out the post was a promo for the movie and not a true promise to deliver on Bound 4 (at least from these two guys, anyway). We’re disappointed. Somehow, Zac Efron riding backwards au natural wouldn’t have seemed so awkward.
