James Franco and Seth Rogen won't be joining the ranks of Louis Vuitton or Jimmy Kimmel anytime soon. In fact, they're on Kanye West's good side!

Kim Kardashian let the funny twosome know via Twitter that Yeezus was a fan of their "Bound 2" parody—aptly titled "Bound 3"—and understandably, the Kimye spoofers were pretty excited to have the Creative Genius' seal of approval!

"Kanye says what's up!," Kim tweeted Seth on Tuesday, Nov. 26. "He loves u guys! He laughed so hard at this." (The original video vixen approves as well, tweeting to the guys Monday they "nailed it" with the clip.)

Seth, freshly OK'd by 'Ye, was "so psyched" the couple liked the clip. "that's so awesome!!" he tweeted to Kim. "Ha!! Tell him what's up back."

And James, who can now add Kanye impersonator to his endlessly long résumé, Instagrammed an image of Seth (naked, of course) with his back-and-forth tweets with Kim, writing, "#Sethrogen #kimkardashian #kanyewest - I'M SO GLAD THAT KIM and KANYE LIKE THE VIDEO - BOUNd 3!!! "

The fellas really should feel flattered, given that Mr. West doesn't always take kindly to others making light of his life's work. He was none too pleased with a skit of children reenacting his BBC One interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and didn't see the humor in South Park's mockery of him back in 2009...Fish sticks, anyone?

But, aside from Josh Groban classically singing the "Best of Kanye West's Tweets"—which he admitted to Jimmy was in fact pretty funny—Seth and James' parody is the only Kanye-approved Kanye parody known to date.

Who could ever need an Oscar when you can count the No. 1 rock star in the world as a fan?
