Watch Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nick Jonas Pillow-Talk in SFW “Famous” Spoof
It was only a matter of time before someone spoofed Kanye West's already-infamous and shockingly NSFW "Famous" music video. Thanks to BBC Radio 1, that time is now.
After seeing—and never being able to unsee—the rows of naked celebrity bodies in the original version, the radio station said they found the video "weird as hell." Their response? To create a parody featuring a fully clothed yet equally star-studded cast.
Cheryl challenges Justin Bieber to shower her with compliments for a minute straight, Troye Sivan hits on Meghan Trainor (surprise, surprise, her "number is no"), Nick Jonas trades cringe-worthy lines with Carly Rae Jepsen, and 5 Seconds of Summer sleep in too late. All the while, the Yeezy track bumps in the background.
This bizarre version is the latest in string of celebrity responses that have gone viral since the original dropped in June, but it may be the most lighthearted yet. Days after the video premiered, Lena Dunham said the "sickening" visual made her feel "sad and unsafe." A representative for George Bush jokingly noted that the former POTUS is "in much better shape" than his wax figure version, and Vincent Desidero—the artist behind the painting that inspired the video—called West's take "brilliant" and "daring."
Though the video is pretty nonsensical, it's one of those rare chances we get to see our favorite stars goofing around. Stream the video above—this time, you can watch it at work.
