James Franco, Seth Rogen parody Kanye West's 'Bound 2' video

Nov. 25, 2013 at 2:07 PM ET

Kanye West's "Bound 2" video, featuring footage of a nude Kim Kardashian straddling a motorcycle (and West straddling Kardashian), might be a serious effort from the rapper — or it might not be, we're still not sure. But there's no need to guess about "Bound 3," the shot-for-shot send-up from actors James Franco and Seth Rogen.

The two stars took a break while working on their latest film, "The Interview," and spent their spare time crafting a perfect parody worthy of the feud it's bound to spark with West. In place of a nude Kardashian, there's a hirsute Rogen. And "falling in love" with him is Franco, who lip syncs West's rhyme's as if they were his own.

Rogen had made the video available on his Facebook page, but sometime after he announced it the world — and to West and Kardashian in particular — it mysteriously disappeared from his feed, and was removed from YouTube. 

Fortunately for fans, the actor offered it up again a few short hours later.

Check out the kissing, the grinding, all of the green-screen action and, of course, the not-safe-work lyrics while it's still available on YouTube.
