Jay Pharoah Spoofs Kanye West in 'I Am a Dog'
'SNL' comic dons floppy ears, declares himself 'the shih tzu'

Saturday Night Live funnyman Jay Pharoah parodies Kanye West in a new video, "I Am a Dog." The spoof alludes to West's black-and-white video for "Black Skinhead" while riffing on "I Am a God," both of which appear on West's new album Yeezus

The video features a growling bulldog and some pretty impressive canine impersonating as Pharaoh chases a mailman down the street and later  drags his bottom across a rug. The comedian shows irreverence for West's self-seriousness with lines like "You want to neglect me / You want to neglect me / Well I'm gonna chew your shoes 'til they're nonexistent."

Kanye West debuted "Black Skinhead" on SNL in May.
