Ansari and 'Master of None' co-star Eric Wareheim's culinary/dance tour of Rome gets Yeezy's seal of approval.

Kanye West has gone meta with his latest music video, choosing a spoof clip recorded by comedians Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim as the official video for "Famous."

The song, which caused a controversy for its lyrics referencing Taylor Swift, was the soundtrack to Ansari and Wareheim's oddball culinary and dance tour of Rome. As well as throwing out Kanye dance moves and no-smile poses, the Master of None stars enjoy the delights of pasta, pizza and everything else the Italian capital has to offer.

Oh, and they double-team a Fiat, too. When in Rome … and all that.

Consequence of Sound reports that Wareheim, one-half of comedy duo Tim & Eric, uploaded the video to his own YouTube channel earlier this month, and after positive internet feedback, West agreed to make it the official video for "Famous."

Ansari has previously appeared in West and Jay Z's video for "Otis."
