Dogs of Instagram star in Kanye West 'Famous' video for AIDs charity

Famous dogs of Instagram (yes that's a thing) have starred in a recreation of Kanye West's 'Famous' video, and it's all for a good cause.

AIDs charity RED posted their own SFW version of the controversial video featuring dogs such as TunaMeltsMyHeart, ToastMeetsWorld, and ChloeKardoggian.

The charity gathered the most influential dogs on Instagram for the video in order to advertise its latest fund-raising initiative, the (BEDHEAD)RED dog pyjamas.

Kanye West's video for his track 'Famous' was an NSFW exclusive to Tidal which was later uploaded to YouTube.

It featured wax models of celebrities including Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour and Bill Cosby, along with West himself and his wife Kim Kardashian-West.

A source reportedly told Hollywood Life that "Taylor is livid and horrified' at being portrayed in the video, after she condemned him for including lyrics about her in the song where he raps that he "made that bitch famous", which she said weren't discussed in a phone call West made to her about it.

"Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me I would love the song," she wrote in an Instagram post.

"I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot 'approve' a song you haven't heard."

Fortunately the dog version of 'Famous' is considerably less NSFW and for a good cause. To donate visit the RED website.
