While we would not trade a second of that moment in human history for anything, it is worth noting that David Elmaleh posted a video of his speech cut down into a tight stand-up comedy track, complete with audience laughter and applause, and it fits terrifyingly well.
The edited speech works perfectly as a bonafide HBO stand-up comedy special. Kanye's delivery, emotion, and animated behavior all seem like he could absolutely kill over at the Laugh Factory. And the part where Kanye West admits to "rolling up a little something" before getting on stage.... well, we could just watch that again, and again, and again. Eternal.
Now, if you add in Seinfeld music, as a Twitter user did, it only enhances the experience even more.
More of these need to keep being made. Watching re-cut versions of Kanye's VMA's speech is the only way we ever want to spend our time now.
For the record, if his stand-up career doesn't launch, there are still those who fully support Kanye's presidential bid. Friend and frequent collaborator Rihanna told ET on Monday,"I mean people are voting for [Donald] Trump," adding, "Who wouldn't vote for Kanye?!"
Kanye, please never, ever, EVER change.
