It was inevitable. But still, it's barely been 12 hours and the first spoof of Kanye West's outburst during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards has already surfaced online.

In the clip, Kanye West takes the brave – and perhaps Hennessey Cognac encouraged – decision to interrupt the US president Barack Obama as he lays out his plans for healthcare reform.

“The reforms I'm proposing do not apply to those who are here illegally,” says Barack, before Kanye interjects: “I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”



As you can imagine, neither Barack nor his vice-president Joe Biden or house speaker Nancy Pelosi, take favourably to West's decision to butt in. But Barack being Barack, addresses the interruption in his usually calm and politically correct way.

“That's not true,” he says.

Who would have thought it? After seeing Beyonce cry her eyes out during her performance at his inauguration in January, it would seem the President of the United States now prefers Taylor Swift.

But, of course, the spoof – and the many hundreds that will follow in the coming days – are just an example of how viral West's outburst has already come.

Whether it was pre-orchestrated or off the cuff, the rapper has ensured that he's stolen the show once again at the MTV VMAs, despite not even picking up an award.
