Aziz Ansari's Emoticon Cover of "Niggas in Paris"


Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne has already been out for four months, but apparently this is official Watch the Throne Parody Week 2011. Yesterday, we watched a trio of hipster girls transform it into a mumblecore movie. And today brings a delightful, spot-on collaborative text/emoticon “cover” of “Niggas in Paris” from “Otis” video co-star Aziz Ansari and his friend, Matt Shawver. We imagine Tom Haverford printing out “Emoji in Paris” and mounting it on the wall next to his desk, flanked by the pocket watch and miniature throne Leslie Knope gave him for Christmas.
