James Corden has spoofed Kanye West's new 'Fade' music video.
West premiered his 'Fade' clip at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night (August 29). It shows up-and-coming G.O.O.D. Music artist Teyana Taylor performing a Flashdance-style aerobic dance routine before morphing into a lioness.
The choreographer has since explained the strange and striking "catface" moment.
In response to the clip, Corden has unveiled a parody for his Late Late Show talk show. The spoof sees Corden asking Taylor to "dial it down a little bit" before pointing out the gym's "zero sheep policy", a reference to the sheep that appear at the end of the music video.

"I think the vision behind that was how amazing Teyana is, and how she's been on the rise, and how she's working, and you are now seeing her blossom into this fierce lioness, this fierce cat," the video's choreographer Jae Blaze told Pitchfork.
"She has worked her way into that, and she's in a great position right now in her life. She has her family. She's being held down by her amazing husband. She has a beautiful daughter. You know, the lioness always protects her baby," Blaze continued. "I think it really is about her coming into her fierceness. And that's where she is in her life right now. She is blossoming."
