The funnyman travelled to Rome with his Master Of None co-star Eric Wareheim earlier this month (Apr16), and they documented their trip by shooting a parody music video for Famous.

Eric, who has previously directed promos for Major Lazer, Charli XCX, and MGMT, put the footage together and Aziz debuted it on on 13 April (16).

"While @ericwareheim & I were in Italy, in between eating pasta, we made a video for 'Famous' by Kanye West," he wrote on as he shared the link with fans.

The comedic video features clips of the pals miming along to the song's lyrics as they feasted on pasta, pizza and other local cuisine, while pulling off various poses and dancing in the streets.

They also sent the spoof to Kanye, and now he has approved their video as the official release for Famous.

A representative for Eric's comedy group JASH tells Consequence Of Sound, "Kanye agreed to have it be the official music video for the song."

Eric also shared a link to the official clip on Twitter on Thursday (28Apr16).

"Told ya," he boasted as he posted a link to the news article online.

Kanye debuted Famous in February (16) as he played his new material from The Life of Pablo album at his New York Fashion Week show. The track sparked controversy as it features a line suggesting he made Taylor Swift famous, a reference to the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when Kanye stormed the stage to protest Taylor's first win over his pal Beyonce.

Taylor shot back at her former rival days later when she took the stage at the Grammy Awards to accept her Album of the Year prize and directed a thinly veiled jab at Kanye, who had initially claimed the pop superstar had approved his boastful lyric - an allegation her representative denied.
