On the set of their new film, The Interview, Seth Rogen and James Franco found themselves so inspired by Kayne West’s video for “Bound 2” that they decided to recreate it, as the introduction announces, “Shot. For. Shot.”
The friends, who met while working on the critically acclaimed, short-lived series Freaks and Geeks in 1999, play the parts of an overly earnest Kayne West (Franco) and a writhing, topless Kim Kardashian (Rogen).
Below, you can watch as the hirsute Rogen learns how the be-flanneled Franco came to love him, as the pair unselfconsciously mug for the camera before an ever-shifting panoply of IMAX outtakes.
