I'm usually ok with these (like Channing Tatum's parody of Van Damme), but the actual music is just so horrible I couldn't make it more than a minute in.
 
2013-11-25 09:37:45 PM
I threw up in my mouth a little bit, but it was worth it.Laughed my ass off.

Then I watched the original (for reference) and threw up in my mouth A LOT.
 
2013-11-25 09:42:01 PM
Damn, that real Kanye song sucks ass hard.
 
2013-11-25 09:45:16 PM
I thought they had parodied the song itself until I watched as much as I could stomach of the original. Kanye West is TheEmperor's New Clothes of our time.

and is it just me or is he a literal mouth-breather?  every picture I see of him he either has his mouth open slightly or it looks like he's tightly clenching his jaws in an attempt to not be exposed as a mouth-breather.

While watching Franco's version, I thought he just reused the lyrics but inserted his own goofy music in the background.
Then I watched the original.


I may take some heat for this but is Kanye going to turn out like an untalented, very angry version of Michael Jackson? He's already insecure, delusional and self-absorbed

Anytime someone makes fun of Kanye, I'm there to root them on.

If there's any mercy in this world, then hopefully we'll have all but forgotten him within a few years.
I'm not going to hold my breath though. For some reason people think he's talented. The best I've ever heard from him was mediocre, and is generally derivative material (21st Century Schizoid Man or Harder Better Faster Stronger), even then he's only damaged the source material, never enhanced it.

I can't really find a single redeeming quality for this person. Parody was hilarious, music was painful.
 
2013-11-25 09:59:53 PM
Define hilarious.

I had to listen to the awful music.  Minus 479 points.
 
2013-11-25 10:01:16 PM
He totally tried his hardest to ruin that Katy Perry song but, you know, tits and what not. Only thing I have heard him performan. If I remember he rhymes a word with the same word. Which was genius when the Simpsons or whomever did it many years ago.
 
2013-11-25 10:14:53 PM
Oooooooooook, that was a waste of 1 minute.

2013-11-25 10:16:31 PM
I too thought they just did a really crappy job at covering the song and then I watched a little bit of the original and found out it's the exact same music.

How many people with shiatty taste in music have to give a song a thumbs up before it gets this far?

Por que tan serioso: He totally tried his hardest to ruin that Katy Perry song but, you know, tits and what not. Only thing I have heard him performan. If I remember he rhymes a word with the same word. Which was genius when the Simpsons or whomever did it many years ago.


It almost makes me sick to my stomach to think of all the talented rappers with real substance, structure and a sense of flow and all the great producers who really understand music and can intertwine old samples and new rhythms into great new pieces of music who have been snubbed just so this infantile little shiat (Kanye, not Franco) can make millions. It's like the music industry set out to prove that they can sell any piece of crap via mass marketing and make money.
 
2013-11-25 10:22:01 PM
Kanye had a few songs where he seemed to make his rhymes work
Then the world figured out he really was a mega jerk
Wishin he was gettin sprayed from a giant circle jerk
Sooner than later he be working as a grocery clerk.

(ah-ha honey)
 
2013-11-25 10:35:09 PM
the side-by-side will give you nightmares.
 
2013-11-25 10:35:17 PM
I honestly thought you guys were farking with me & everyone else late in the thread.

Holy Capital-S shiat.  That song was worse than a band trying to sabotage their own recording contract.

That wasn't even laughably bad... it was Manos: Hands of Fate bad.  And I feel bad for the guys who made Manos when I make that comparison.

Worst song... OF ALL TIME, KANYE.  OF.  ALL. TIME.
 
2013-11-25 10:35:47 PM
Shut down the Internet, not going to top this for the laughs ;)
 
2013-11-25 10:41:32 PM
that was the first kanye song i have ever heard. i thought it was a crappy parody but evidently it was the real thing. part way thru, i turned the volume off.

why is he considered a great artist/musician? friend just went to his concert in DC then other week and raved about how great it was. of course he taped the whole thing with his phone. he was three feet from the stage. vip ticket. i couldn't understand a single piece of the music. sounded like lots of noise. not cool slayer or maiden type noise but electronic cats in heat and fighting in an alley noise.
 
2013-11-25 10:48:42 PM
Is it okay for a white dude to lip-sync the n-word?  It's a grey area, I guess.  So to speak.

But yeah, that song's turr-ble, and the video is awesome.
 
2013-11-25 10:49:31 PM
I actually know a "serious" music fan who insists this is a great song both musically and lyrically.
 
2013-11-25 11:09:02 PM

stonelotus: the side-by-side will give you nightmares.


That's amazing production work by Franco & Rogen.  Holy crap.  They only had a few days to come up with the idea, block it cut-by-cut, get the background visuals, rehearse, and put that together.

I'm even more impressed with the parody.

And Kanye's moves are hilariously bad.  They are all variations on jerking off, "are you not entertained", and angry looks over the shoulder.

Convince him to see a doctor as soon as possible. Your friend has clearly suffered a stroke.

There are some Kanye songs I've liked, and which have even earned a place on my playlists... this was not even close to being one of them. This song is just brutally bad.
 
2013-11-25 11:21:31 PM
just saw 'This is the End', what a crappy horrible piece of crap
 
2013-11-25 11:36:49 PM
I believe Franco and Rogen's love more than the original.

E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: just saw 'This is the End', what a crappy horrible piece of crap


Overall, yes. It has some really funny moments though, so if you can FF with your mouse wheel you can squeeze some entertainment value out of it. I would have been pissed if I saw it in the theater though.
 
2013-11-25 11:42:13 PM
Give Seth Rogen a couple more years, and he'll have a better rack than Kim, as well as more talent.

Good. God. Are you sure he or she wasn't just being trollish? I mean, absolutely sure?
 
2013-11-25 11:46:27 PM
Did Franco blow anybody during the video?

Cuz I can't believe Franco could go the whole video without sucking some dick....

scottydoesntknow: I'm usually ok with these (like Channing Tatum's parody of Van Damme), but the actual music is just so horrible I couldn't make it more than a minute in.


Wow... how does Kanye West keep selling this crap? That was very very bad. At first, I thought the parody was messing up the music, then I checked out the original video, and.. wow. I'd prefer to listen to Rebecca Black rather than that garbage.
 
2013-11-25 11:55:19 PM
Never heard of it so I just watched it, and there's no way Bound 2 is a real song. It just isn't possible.

In retrospect, I think a StSanders shred would be better than the original of that song.

that was farking hilarious.  that song is akin to sticking my dick in a wood chipper.

Dear God, this.

Though I watched a bit of the original first, the clip shown on Ellen DeGeneres's show. I had that page open in another tab, and after getting to the white horses I flipped over to another tab for a moment. When Kanye started in, I thought that maybe the clip was getting drowned out by an autoplay ad elsewhere on the page. Took me a minute to realize that crap was actually the song.

Rogen and Franco were hilarious but the music just made it unwatchable before the halfway mark.
 
2013-11-26 12:45:33 AM
Rebecca Black feels a little better about herself with Kanye's release of that song.

E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: just saw 'This is the End', what a crappy horrible piece of crap



I thought it was decent enough, in a "Hot Tub Time Machine" campy sort of way. You have to go in not expecting it to be more than it is.
 
2013-11-26 01:33:00 AM
There are so many things wrong with the (original) video, and Kanye's entire career in general, that I don't know where to start - my brain just goes into a kind of self-defensive lockdown.

This is an awesome parody, though like others have said, it made me endure the song again, so I'm torn.

well, you're an idiot then. because it was exactly as advertised.

Well that's it. Music criticism has officially jumped the shark. I can now safely ignore anything said by anyone who labels themselves a "music critic".

Actually he shattered his jaw in a car accident in 2002 and had to have reconstructive surgery on it. That could have something to do with it.

That poor car, trying so hard but failing to save the rest of us from Kanye's music.

RIP, Car. Better luck next time.

Deerhoof has a five star rating from the New York Times. For an album that included this song. Music critics have heard some weird stuff, and judge things completely from you or I.

Franco and Rogen have better chemistry than Kanye and Kim. If you showed the videos to someone who had no knowledge of any of these clowns and asked them to guess which video was actors and which one was the real couple who have a kid, they wouldn't pick Kimye as the ones who are banging because they have less than zero chemistry.
