Craig David, Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas + More Update Kanye's "Famous" Video w/ Clothes & Politeness
Over the last two weeks, Kanye West’s “Famous” video has become nothing short of a sensation, adding to the full-on The Life Of Pablo spectacle with a portrayal of Vincent Desidario‘s “Sleep” that puts all of his foes in bed with one another. And himself, for that matter. Reception has been nothing short of polarizing, with some (including the artist “sampled”) claiming it be high-art, others striking it down as being borderline “revenge porn.”
But wherever you lay on that spectrum, one thing we can probably all agree on is that it may call for a lighter take. Cue: Justin Bieber, Craig David, Carly Rae Jepsen, and the like, all of which can be seen lazing about in a new parody of the video that everyone loves to hate, adding clothing and politeness in a very “Safe For Work” recalibration. They shower each other with compliments and basically just go in the exact opposite direction with every creative turn (though “creative” is kinda stretching it here.)
In any case, I’d still take the original. Watch as a grip of Top 40 artists parody Kanye’s scandalous “Famous” video down below.
