It seemed like Kanye West’s “Bound 2” music video featuring a topless Kim Kardashian came way out of left field, but now we know the real reason why it exists…so that Seth Rogen and James Franco could recreate it shot-for shot.
Yes, the comedic duo got up close and personal during the shoot atop a motorcycle and cheesy green screen background.
Why? Because what else are you supposed to do during your down time with your bestie?

Rogen confessed that the video took more effort than he’d like to admit, but we think the finished product was well worth it.
The clip went viral immediately, obviously. It’s racked up more than 2.3 million views since being unleashed upon the internet just yesterday.
WARNING: This video includes explicit language that may not be appropriate for all viewers.
So does KimYe approve of this spoof? Here’s what the bride-to-be had to share on Twitter:
