Zac and Seth pose for 'Bound 4' to squeeze out a few more laughs.
Zac Efron has joined in the fun of spoofing Kanye West's new music video, 'Bound 2,' by posting his own version of the cheesy scene on Instagram. The real 'Bound 2' was released last week showing Kanye and his topless fiancée Kim Kardashian riding a motorbike through mountains and sunsets. Naturally the video was an open invitation for parodies and we were quickly given Seth Rogen and James Franco's hilarious 'Bound 3.'
Efron Has Joined In The 'Bound 2' Spoofing.
After 'Bound 3' was given the seal of approval by Kim Kardashian, it opened the gate for more spoof attempts. A photo was posted on Zac Efron's Instagram showing the former High School Musical star and Rogen standing outside topless. The pic has the words "Bound 4" and "Neighbors" emblazoned on it due to the actors co-starring in the upcoming movie, Neighbors.
Efron's social media team were quick to capitalise on the success of Franco and Rogen's parody and so went overboard on the caption, writing "Whether you're a #KanyeWest fan or not, fans are#Bound2 get a kick out of this new still from#ZacEfron and #SethRogen's film #NeighborsMovieCheck out all the neighborly shenanigans when the comedy hits theaters next May! #uhhuhhoney."
Seeing as the movie was shot in early 2013, it's unlikely we'll see a full length 'Bound 2' parody on the scale of Franco and Rogen's and rather the photo is to garner publicity for Neighbors on the back of the parody's current popularity. Or more rather, an excuse for Efron to show off his extremely toned physique.
Seth Rogen Lends Zac Efron Some Star Power?
Efron and Rogen's partnership is unlikely to be as fruitful as Rogen and Franco's 10 years of funny movie-making but the publicity will do well to serve Efron as he makes his foray into more comedic roles.
The upcoming comedy, formerly titled Townies, stars Efron and Rogen as residents of a rowdy fraternity house who conflict with a couple with a newborn baby who move in next door. Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Lisa Kudrow and Jake Johnson will also star in the movie which looks to be crudely hilarious.
Neighbors will be released on the 9th May 2014.
