Aziz Ansari’s “Famous” Video Combines Kanye, Pasta, & Dance Moves In Perfect Harmony — VIDEO
Ever since The Life of Pablo was released, Kanye West's "Famous" has spurred quite a bit of controversy. There's that line dissing Taylor Swift, which he recently defended... again. But thanks to the ever-hilarious Aziz Ansari, you'll never view the song the same way again. That's because Ansari and his Master of None co-star Eric Wareheim made a "Famous" video and it's as glorious as you'd expect. Based on the comedian's recent social media posts, I'm guessing the two are in Italy filming Season 2 of the Netflix series. (Or at least, I sure hope that's what they're doing!) The location must have inspired them to make a music video.
Honestly, Ansari and Wareheim's "Famous" music video is the most anti-Kanye video of all time — that's what makes it so great. I don't think West would ever be prancing around in a field of flowers. Nor do I think he'd utter, "God damn!" in response to pasta. But when you see the pasta they're eating, trust me, you'll understand. Plus, I just can't imagine Yeezy air-humping a car.
Overall, this video is fantastic and I had to try to stifle my laughter while sitting in a coffee shop. So, if you're watching this in a crowded location, I warn you that you may burst out with a case of the LOLs. It's totally worth getting weird looks from strangers, though.
The only thing that would have made the video better would be if the rest of the Master of None crew — Noël Wells, Lena Waithe, and Kelvin Yu — joined in on the fun. I also would have loved a cameo from Ansari's parents. But I'll take what I can get. Together, Ansari and Wareheim are a hilarious pair.
Since I can't get enough of this video, I've transformed the best moments into gifs. Because seriously, it's just so gif-able.
1. Aziz's Moves
I don't know what you'd call this move, but I absolutely love it.
2. Dancing In A Field
I've never seen such a free spirit.
3. "God Damn!"
What other response is there to such good pasta?
4. The Steps
Next time I see a set of steps, I want to steal Ansari's moves.
5. Pasta, Pasta, Pasta
Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? This video would be nothing without the drool-worthy Italian food.
I don't know about you, but this makes me even more excited for Master of None's second season. The bar has officially been raised.
