Funny or Die may have come up with the perfect follow-up to FX “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
Splicing together cuts of the popular FX show with footage of Kanye West’s wildest moments results in parody clip “The People V. Kanye.” In the parody, West’s radio rants, scuffles with paparazzi and absurd comments, lead to reaction shots of characters from the FX show trying to figure out what to do about him.
“This is the worst day of my life,” Bruce Greenwood’s Gil Garcetti says in response to the infamous clip of Kanye interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs. “It’s worse than the day I was diagnosed with cancer.”
Other clips included show James Corden asking Dr. Phil what he thinks is wrong with Kanye, and Swift firing back at the artist at a later awards show.
“If any of you try to assist him you will be committing a felony,” Greenwood’s Garcetti adds. “You will be prosecuted.”
Funny or Die will have a lot of material for a sequel to this clip. In recent months, West has become more and more popular for his Twitter rants, a recent backstage meltdown on “SNL” and his announcement that he is $53 million in debt.
As a result, he is one of Time’s most influential people on the Internet.
