Aziz Ansari will always, somehow, be connected with Kanye West. First appearing in the “Otis” video back in 2011, Ansari has woven stories of hanging out with Kanye West into his comedy bits for years. Hell, Ansari’s parents even met Yeezy. While the next connection isn’t in direct contact with Kanye, it doesn’t come as a surprise at all.
Aziz and Eric Wareheim (who is one half of comedy duo Tim & Eric) star in Master Of None, one of Netflix’s best new shows. Recently, the two were together in Italy, and “in between eating pasta,” the two made a video for Kanye West’s “Famous.” Randomly filmed on an iPhone, the two parade around the streets of the country of wine, pasta and cheese singing along to Swizz Beatz ad-libs, eating the country’s finest dishes and humping cars. (Can’t hate on ’em for the last one. That “Bam Bam” flip lifts you up to the heavens and makes you do all types of weird shit. I nearly crashed my car singing it to a random car next to me once.)
Whether we get videos for songs off The Life Of Pablo or not, this “Famous” video wouldn’t be a bad substitute.
