Update: A source has denied that Kanye West has made this the official video.

According to Pitchfork, despite a previous report from Eric Warehiem’s rep, this is not the official video for ‘Famous’.

Master of None joke becomes reality.

In a fit of efficiency, Kanye West has adopted a spoof tribute to The Life of Pablo cut ‘Famous’ as the song’s official video.

Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim shot their own video for the track while on location in Italy making season two of Ansari’s Netflix series Master of None. 

According to a representative for JASH, a comedy collective featuring Wareheim, Kanye has decided to save himself the effort of shooting his own video and has added it to his own YouTube channel.

Kanye’s been fairly quiet in the last week after the media frenzy surrounding the still-incomplete The Life of Pablo (which he was still tweaking on Apple Music a week ago). Earlier this month he was in Scotland, reportedly to shoot a video for ‘Waves’. [via CoS]
