The big story yesterday on the Internet was the parody James Franco and Seth Rogen made of Kanye West’s "Bound 2" music video. But what you may not have known is that the mountains above Utah County make a short cameo in the Franco-Rogen version.
West’s original video was a bizarre, NSFW (for the uninitiated: not safe for work) motorcycle ride in which a topless Kim Kardashian channels Thandie Newton circa "Mission Impossible II." But that description probably oversells it; in reality the video was just a really boring four minutes of blah. (I’m sure West would disagree though, as he is fond of saying he’s a genius.)
Anyway, Franco and Rogen spoofed West’s video shot for shot and posted it online earlier this week. But they apparently had access to different stock footage because 14 seconds in, there’s a shot of clouds rolling over Utah County, with Mount Timpanogos and Utah Lake clearly visible. The cameo was first caught by photographer Spencer Heaps.
I should also probably mention that the Franco-Rogen video is questionably SFW (safe for work), as long as your work is cool with you watching stuff with a lot of homoeroticism in it. And men’s hairy backs.
