Kanye West made his bed, and now he has to lie in it.

Weeks after West's "Famous" visual debuted at The Forum in L.A. (and was live-streamed on Tidal), BBC Radio 1 has parodied the rapper's music video. The station recruited comedy duo Ant & Dec, as well as 5 Seconds of Summer's Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin, Justin Bieber, Craig David, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nick Jonas, Troye Sivan and Meghan Trainor, to parody the musician's controversial chef-d'oeuvre.

Vincent Desiderio's painting Sleep inspired West's visual. In his latest release, a camera pans over nude, silent likenesses of George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, West, Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby. In BBC Radio 1's parody, though, the participants remain fully clothed and engage in pillow talk.

The radio station filmed the musicians separately, over a period of time, using stand-ins. Thanks to some clever editing, it appears as if the stars were in bed with one another. "Out the two of us, who do you think is the hottest?" Fernandez-Versini asks. Bieber replies, "Probably me." After a beat, the singer smiles and says, "No, I'm just messing with you, but I do have a perfect, symmetrical face."

Fernandez-Versini challenges her bedmate to spend a minute giving her compliments. "You're kind. You are handsome. You have a nice jacket. You are fit. You have nice shoes," Bieber says. "You are, uh...You've got a good haircut. Nice little jugular action you've got going on here." (OK, so Bieber was really talking to BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw.)

Other singers, including Jepsen, Jonas and Trainor, used puns inspired by their own song lyrics.

This isn't the first time West's "Famous" video has been parodied, of course; ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! and CBS' The Late Show both mocked the visual days after its June 24 premiere.
