The internet definitely had a LOT to say when ‘Vogue’ announced their April issue on March 21! Almost immediately, parodies of the cover hit the internet — including from The Muppets!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had to know that once their April Vogue cover was released on March 21 that people would be poking fun. Less mean-spirited, however, than the zillions of Twitter users swearing off their Vogue subscriptions — including Sarah Michelle Gellar — are the parody covers that have been released from The Muppets and James Franco and Seth Rogen — and fans, too!
The Muppets Parody Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s ‘Vogue’ Cover
Surely meant to be just a harmless joke, The Muppets’ Facebook account posted a truly excellent parody of Kimye’s Vogue cover. The issue, called Vague, has Kermit and Piggy on the front, mirroring Kimye’s Vogue pose, and the caption to the image reads: “‘Vague’ brings you Kermiggy, the #UniversesMostTalkedAboutCouple.”
Kimye — we think you’ve been one-upped! After all, Kimye’s Vogue cover reads that they are only the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple.
James Franco And Seth Rogen Parody Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s ‘Vogue’ Cover
Meanwhile, James Franco outdid himself on his Instagram account with a Photoshop job that adds “Graphic Designer” to his extensive list of credits. He swapped in his and Seth Rogen’s faces onto Kanye and Kim’s, respectively, in a nod to the “Bound 2” video that they shot together. The greatest.
But James and Seth — we think you can step it up a notch and do a shoot for real. Though to be fair, Seth Rogen crammed into a wedding dress would probably shut down the internet.
