Here Come The Kanye West "Famous" Parodies

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel take swings at controversial clip.

Whether you love or hate Kanye West's recently-released controversial video for "Famous"—the artist who inspired it called it "a feat of magic," but Taylor Swift is reportedly "pissed"—no one can argue that it's perfect parody fodder.

And no one recognizes this more than late-night talk show hosts, so both Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert took their own respective swings at recreating the clip.

Colbert claimed he'd been cut out of the video after originally being cast and shared the lost "footage" on-air; he can be seen laying next to George W. Bush, wearing nothing but a nasal strip: "Yeah, we just had sex. All of us. At the same time. I wish you could smell it in here; it is like a cage at a zoo. They're gonna have to burn this bed."

Kimmel ran a similar bit, but replaced Bush with his very own security guard-turned-sidekick Guillermo.
