VMA host Kevin Hart: not afraid to get matchy-matchy with Kim and Kanye!
The 2012 VMAs are just a few weeks away, and who better to lead us boldly, fearlessly and inappropriately into the world’s finest (if we may!) music award show than comedian Kevin Hart? If for some reason news of Kevin’s VMA hosting gig isn’t enough to make you choke on your burger (but in the good, tasty way), then let us direct you to this UNREAL video of Kevin trying out some bits on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who just aren’t having it. Like, not even a tiny bit. In fact, imagine the “Mercy” rapper and 2012 VMA nominee making THIS FACE, but eight or nine times better, and forever.
Kim Kardashian’s got the “are-you-kidding-me-with-this” face on LOCK.
We won’t spoil it, but basically Kevin runs all up in Kanye and Kim’s life and tries to turn their duo into a three-way relay. (We won’t even get started on the comedic irony and 50 shades of wrong that is a black man suggesting another black man and an Armenian woman name themselves “KKK.”) Somewhat understandably, Kevin attempts to color-coordinate outfits (as Kimye does) and then rename them Kevkimkey? Kevyekim? Yekimkev? Does it matter? All we know is that there are WAY more jokes where those came from, and that Kevin Hart is the man responsible for getting us IRL footage of Kim and Kanye on the same bed, and for that we are forever grateful.
