Seth Rogen became obsessed with “nuzzling” just like Kim Kardashian while shooting his Bound 2 spoof.
The promo for Kanye West’s song sees the rapper driving a motorbike with his fiancée Kim on board. She is topless and is seen in some raunchy poses, causing the video to quickly hit the headlines.
Seth and his friend James Franco then created their own version of the clip, with Seth playing the reality TV star.
“We were so taken by it that we actually literally the next morning started filming our own version of it," he told Ellen DeGeneres. "And then we kind of realised, like, ""Oh, we can do it exactly how they did it, like literally moment for moment, shot for shot."" And then once we realised that, we kind of became obsessed with getting it perfect, like every - even the lighting - and like I would try to nuzzle the same way she nuzzled.”
James previously revealed that Kanye got in touch with him and Seth to see if they would perform at his upcoming wedding to Kim, believed to be taking place in Paris this weekend. The men turned down the offer, with Seth giving a little more insight about why.
“[West] 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 [West is] like, ""Then I""m just rapping with you and James Franco on a motorcycle for five minutes,""” he laughed. "And thank God [we] kind of realised 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."
It’s not the only time Seth and James have poked fun at Kim and Kanye. The men also spoofed the couple’s much talked about US Vogue cover, implanted their heads on the in-love pair’s bodies.
