Seth Rogen Talks Kanye West Wedding, ‘Bound 2′ Video Spoof with James Franco on ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ (Video)

May 1, 2014

Seth Rogen talked about parody he and James Franco did of Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2′ music video and confirmed that West had asked them to perform it live at the wedding. He dished details of the making of the spoof and more on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’

The actor and director is making the promo rounds for his new movie ‘Neighbors’ in which he stars opposite Zac Efron. But never far from the conversation is the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in the aftermath of the hilarious spoof he and James Franco did of Kanye West’s aforementioned ‘Bound 2′ music video.

He talked about how the spoof came about, saying he saw the video on Ellen DeGeneres’s program when Kanye West initially premiered it. He said, “We were so taken by it that we started filming our own version.” He said they then decided to do it “moment-by-moment, shot-by-shot” and that they became “obsessed with getting it perfect” all the details exact.

He also talked about their spoof of the controversial Vogue magazine cover saying “Once you get a laugh with the joke, you kind of want to keep going with it, I guess, is the instinct. So yeah, it, you know, you’re not always proud of the laughs you get, but we perpetuated it.”

While it seems unlikely Seth Rogen confirmed that Kanye West had invited him and James Franco to the wedding to do a live reenactment of their ‘Bound 2′ music video parody.

He told the host, “Me and Franco got a call. He said that he was thinking it may be funny if we performed it at the wedding and we came out on a motorcycle, and then we were like, ‘And then what do we do?’ And then we were all like, ‘I don’t know!’ And then we were like, ‘That’s probably not gonna be very funny’ because he’s like, ‘Then I’m just rapping with you and James Franco on a motorcycle for five minutes.”

He went on to say, “And thank God we kind of realized that it might not be the best idea. But if he wanted me there I would have been there naked, with a shirt off, however he wanted me, on a motorcycle, doing whatever he needed because I’m a fan.”

Later in the interview, Seth Rogen went on to discuss the movie “Neighbors” which also sees him naked in some of the scenes. But for those hoping for the ‘Bound 2′ music video parody at the wedding of Kanye West and his finance Kim Kardashian, alas, those hopes are dashed!
