Watch ‘SNL”s Jay Pharoah Spoof Kanye West Perfectly

+

Kanye West has done a bang-up job at showing the world that his ability to laugh at himself went MIA around the time his fantasy got all beautiful, dark, and twisted. But we dare him not to crack a smile at this video for “I Am a Dog,” SNLer Jay Pharoah’s pinpoint spoof of “I Am a God,” off West’s latest album, Yeezus. Pharoah is well known for his supernatural impersonation skills, which are on full display here, but the beauty here lies in Pharoah’s incredibly simple, very effective takedown of one of the most egotistical songs ever recorded.
