Aziz Ansari's spoof music video for Kanye West's 'The Life of Pablo' single 'Famous' has now been approved by the rapper himself as the official clip for the track.
The comedian teamed up with Master Of None co-star Eric Wareheim earlier this month (April) for the video, which was shot in Rome and sees the pair dancing on the streets, riding bicycles and sampling the local cuisine, all the while miming along to the song’s lyrics.
Consequence Of Sound reports that a representative for Wareheim's comedy collective JASH confirmed that the video has been given the thumbs-up from West. "Kanye agreed to have it be the official music video for the song," the rep said.
Wareheim later confirmed the reports via Twitter, writing: "Told ya". See that tweet below and watch the video for 'Famous'.

'Famous' is not the first music video that Wareheim has directed. He has also worked on official videos for Major Lazer, Charli XCX, Beach House, Flying Lotus, MGMT and more.
West has also recently filmed a video for album track ’Waves’ on the Scottish Isle of Skye.
