Comedian and actor Aziz Ansari has had the best year of his career as of late, with his fantastic performances in Parks & Rec, and his new Netflix series Master of None. He can now add a new accomplishment to his ever-growing list: star in an official Kanye West music video.
Along with his Master of None co-star Eric Wareheim, Ansari filmed a humorous video to Kanye’s banger “Famous” off his The Life Of Pablo album, with the two buddies clowning around in Europe, running up and down ancient steps, tasting delicacies and sipping vino. After seeing the video, West gave it his blessing and decided to make it the official video for the track. This is no surprise, since Ansari and West’s friendship has been well documented for years now through public appearances together, Ansari’s cameo in the “Otis” video with Jay-Z, and in his own stand-up.
UPDATE: Kanye’s publicist just confirmed that this is NOT the official “Famous” video after all, unfortunately. But you can still watch it knowing that somewhere, Kanye is laughing right along with you at the same damn video.
