This is too good. Parody master James Corden took on Kanye West’s ‘Fade’ video as his latest challenge, and as usual, he knocked it out of the park. WATCH this ‘alternate’ version of the music video, where James works out with Teyana Taylor…well, sort of!
James Corden, 38, has edited himself into part of Kanye West‘s “Fade” video, and it is gold. It opens with him trying to lift barbells as Teyana Taylor, 25, dances provocatively, and James stars to criticize her moves, feeling self-conscious in his hoodie next to the bombshell. “Sorry, do you mind, because it’s sort of a public gym…? We all have to work out — at the same…” he says, trying to get Taylor’s attention. “There’s actually a dance place next door, rather than doing it amongst the equipment.” HA!
Taylor doesn’t give him a glance (obviously), and James tries to keep working out before oil from Taylor’s hair-flipping gets in his face. “That’s too much oil. No one needs that much oil,” he complains. “Do you mind dialing it down a little bit?” Hilarious!

It escalates from there, with James pointing out a sign in the gym that reads, “NO SHEEP IN GYM”, and announcing that he joined this gym strictly because of its “zero sheep policy”. Amazing. You can watch the entire parody above!
Kanye’s video for “Fade” premiered at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28, and it broke the Internet. The video is bizarrely sexy — as James pointed out, the whole thing with the sheep is ridiculous, but Teyana definitely has moves. Still, it’s just asking to be mocked, and James didn’t let us down!
