Eric Wareheim and Aziz Ansari went to Italy and fucked around to the beat of Kanye’s infamous tune Famous. Thankfully they recorded it all, because this is some infectious fun.
The results speak for themselves:
Yes, this is the song with the infamous line about Taylor Swift, the one that’s been turned into ten thousand clickbait articles. Surprise? It’s a damn fine song, packed with an array of crowd pleasing moments and a decent rap turn from Kanye. I get especially hyped when that Nina Simone hook comes in.
I don’t know what my favorite part of this video is. Maybe it’s the guys eating an endless variety of pasta. Maybe it’s the moment when they seem to be double teaming a Fiat. It’s just silly stuff, but it pasted a huge grin on my face. Kanye should probably let Warheim direct all of his future videos.
Shout out to Tyler for the tip. Well, more than a tip; he pushed this video on me three times before I gave it a look. Thanks for knowing I’d like it more than I did!
