Kanye West VMAs Speech With ‘Seinfeld’ Twist Somehow Makes More Sense
Rapper Kanye West did not take very long to become a trending topic on social media after his impromptu speech at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
Some viewers were surprised. Other viewers were confused. Some were shocked while others felt that Kanye exceeded their wildest expectations.
A vast number of memes based on Kanye West announcing a presidential run in 2020 have flooded the Internet since Sunday night. However, a different aspect of the speech/rant recently came under review by fans and critics.
When edited creatively, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kanye’s rant sounds more like a stand-up comedy set than an iconic award acceptance speech — especially when you add a laugh track to it.
A Twitter user with the handle @Seinfeld2000 apparently took things a step further by adding the Seinfeld theme music in the background.

Watching this 30-second clip makes it seem as if Kanye West is performing a short set before the camera cuts to this week’s episode of the Kanye West Show.
Whether you are a fan of Kanye West or not, watching a short clip from his lengthy rant with a laugh track and the Seinfeld theme music just seems to fit together like a confusing jigsaw puzzle. Quite a few people have reacted to the Kanye West-Seinfeld mash-up on Twitter and seem to agree.

As mentioned, Kanye West ended his lengthy rant by claiming that he would run for a presidential seat in the Oval Office five years from now.
“I don’t know what I stand to lose after this. It don’t matter though, because it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas, bro, new ideas. People with ideas, people who believe in truth… And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
Jerry Seinfeld has yet to comment or make an official statement about the mash-up video placing his sitcom’s iconic theme music in the background of the viral Kanye West rant.
