BBC Radio 1 enlisted the help of Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Craig David, and some other very famous singers to star in their very SFW parody video of Kanye West's not so safe for work "Famous" video. The visual opens up on Bieber and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini comfortably under the covers together as Cheryl dares him to spend the next minute giving her compliments. In return, Bieber dishes out several good traits that seem to be more about himself than anyone else.

"Out the two of us, who do you think is the hottest?" Fernandez-Versini asks. "Probably me," Bieber replies before adding, "No, I'm just messing with you, but I do have a perfect, symmetrical face."

From there, Nick Jonas, Carly Rae Jepsen, Troye Sivan, Meghan Trainor, 5 Seconds of Summer turn up in bed to drop subtle jokes and lyrical shout outs to each of their hit songs. The comedy is a little thin to say the least and nowhere near as shocking as Kanye's vision considering everyone is fully clothed, but the BBC definitely did a decent job recruiting a wide array of some top talent.

Of course, nothing could really compare to the original "Famous" visual that channeled Vincent Desiderio's painting as it panned over nude, silent likenesses of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby. In comparison, BBC's parody is more of an extended play of pillow talk. Watch the whole thing above.
