Aziz Ansari & Eric Wareheim Made a Video for Kanye West's 'Famous' in Rome

Aziz Ansari and Tim & Eric weirdball Eric Wareheim are probably in Italy filming the second of the indispensable Master of None right now. Not sure we can care about that at the moment, though, because they just turned the city of Rome upside down with a bootleg video for Kanye West's The Life of Pablo single "Famous."

It might be the best in a medium-long line of Yeezy/Azizy moments, like the time the actor/comedian reinterpreted the entirety of "N---as in Paris" through emojis way before emojis were a thing. It's also definitely—no "might" here, at all—the best unofficial Kanye video since Zach Galifianakis did "Can't Tell Me Nothing" on a tractor back in '07.

Seriously. Who's listening to "Famous" and imagining himself mouthing Swizz Beatz's motivational ad-libs while munching primo pasta? Or humping a Volkswagen Beetle during the Sister Nancy sample? Aziz, Eric Wareheim and no one else.
