Just in time for the holidays, “Saturday Night Live” remixes Kanye West’s “Bound 2” music video into a funny spoof.
Bringing back its ’The KimYe Show’ segment, which features comedian Jay Pharaoh as Kanye and Nasim Pedrad as Kim Kardashian, the two flipped the romantic music video into a visual ode to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. “Uh huh, Rudolph,” Kim nasally sings, as the two ride around the North Pole.
The rest of the ’The KimYe Show’ included laughs about weight loss (Kanye sings a Christmas carol to the tune of “Joy to the World” with the lyrics “Joy to the world. Kim’s body’s back”) the Kardashian Kristmas Karolers with the rest of the Kardashian Klan and a gingerbread “nightclub” that Kim built in her free time. “I wanna eat the roof!” she whines.
This isn’t the first “Bound 2” spoof. Actors Seth Rogen and James Franco made a bro-mantic version of their own while Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi used the famous topless visual to inspire their annual holiday card.
