Kanye West’s life is a soap opera. So that’s why the lyrics to his songs make for a melodramatic soap opera. Writers at The Late Late Show noticed the extraordinary parallels and they made a soap opera comprised solely of Kanye West lyrics featuring James Corden, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Giovanni Ribisi, and Reggie Watts.
The complex and operatic love quadangle is titled “The Bold and the Lyrical.” Cranston is about to marry Biel, but in steps her other loves: Corden and Ribisi. Hearing Walter White “rap” lyrics from “Through The Wire” and
“Gold Digger” is tremendous. Unfortunately for Cranston, he also thinks that “Hotline Bling” is a Kanye joint.
I imagine that this skit will become a regular bit on the Late Late Show.
