Move over, Kimye. There's a new claim to the pop culture, super-couple throne: James Franco and Seth Rogen.

The actors recreated Kanye's video for Bound 2, with Franco as Kanye and Rogen as Kim. The original Kim-topless-and-riding-a-bike video is already campy, but the shot-for-shot remake by these two funnymen takes it to a whole new level. Rogen posted the video on his Facebook under the title "Bound 3," because...of course.
You have to admire the two friends' commitment to their art, here. The Kimye video includes plenty of simulated sex and rapping the lyric "I wanna f*** you hard on the sink/after that, get you something to drink" while keeping a straight face, and they did it admirably. Bonus: It's also a really good way to get free publicity for their upcoming movie, The Interview. Rogen doing his take on Kim's breathy, "uh-huh, honey" is worth the price of admission alone.
It's worth remembering: This isn't Franco's first time doing a music video takedown: He and his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson did a hilarious remake of the Justin Bieber video "Boyfriend" that's totally worth a rewatch. Can Lorne Michaels get him on videos for SNL now that the Lonely Island guys are gone?
