You remember where we first met?

Kanye West said that the ‘Bound 2’ video was meant to be bad

Yeezy also told Seth Rogen that him and James Franco ‘probably spent more time working on it than we did’

Late last year, partners-in-crime James Franco and Seth Rogen released their parody of Kanye West's "Bound 2" video. If you don't remember "Bound 2", it features horses and Kimye on a motorbike, combined with a Russian wedding photo aesthetic to the whole thing. In their parody, Franco plays Kanye and Rogen takes on Kim ("Rogen has a hairier back, so it's funnier").

Speaking on Jimmy Fallon's Tales From Set video series, the duo discussed how they came to make the parody and revealed that Kanye told them that his video was "bad for the purpose of being bad", shedding some light on Yeezy's creative intentions for his simultaneously oft-derided and much-loved video. When Rogen said they'd spent three or four hours on their version, West told him: "Man, you guys spent more time working on it than we did." 

Both Franco and Rogen were scared of what the rapper would think, but Kanye liked Franco and Rogen's version so much that he even called them up to discuss having them perform it live at his wedding, before deciding that it might be funny for a while and then hugely awkward. Good call.
