Kanye West ditched plan for spoof skit at wedding

KANYE WEST abandoned plans to recreate SETH ROGEN and JAMES FRANCO's spoof of his BOUND 2 music video at his upcoming wedding when the trio realized the skit would not be funny.

Last November (13), Rogen, along with his Pineapple Express co-star James Franco, parodied West's promo, in which he cavorts with his fiancee Kim Kardashian as they ride through a desert on a motorcycle.

Both West and his bride-to-be praised the actors for their comedic spoof, and the Stronger hitmaker decided it would be fun to invite Rogen and Franco to his top-secret nuptials.

They discussed the possibility of recreating the pair's skit, but after a brief discussion they dropped the idea because it wasn't funny.

In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (01May14), Rogen explained, "He brought it up. Me and Franco got a call and he said that he was thinking it might be funny if he performed it at the wedding and we came out on a motorcycle.

"And then we were like, 'And then what do we do?' and Kanye said, 'I don't know, that's probably not going to be funny and then I'm just rapping for five minutes with you and James Franco on a motorcycle.' And thank God I think it was kind of realized that it might not be the best idea."

Kardashian and West are rumored to be tying the knot in Paris, France this month (May14).
