Alas, your chance to become Kanye West
Now, you have the opportunity to morph into Kanye West. (Photo by tactiksmag.com on Flickr)
Wanna be Kanye West? He sure thinks you do.
The rapper with the infamous ego stars in a fake infomercial for Be Kanye tablets, which allow the user to (you guessed it) totally become the Chicago native. The spot is produced by the sponsor of his recent Glow in the Dark tour, Absolut Vodka, although the liquor companys name is largely absent from the spot. All we know is that we can only truly be Kanye in an Absolut world.
And its not just videos. We were startled to see Kanyes sunglassed mug smiling at us from an ad on the N train last night, telling us that with just a few Alka Seltzer-like tablets, we, too, could Be Kanye.
It seems counter-intuitive that Ye, who has deemed himself impossible to duplicate, would suggest that bald, middle-aged white men could and should morph into his likeness and reap the benefits of his fame and smoothness with the ladies.
Then again, this provides another opportunity for Mr. Wests face to be plastered on billboards and spewed all over blogs.
This one too, obviously.
