The music video for Kanye West's Famous features a bunch of celebrities, or their wax figures, lying in bed together with the artist and his wife Kim Kardashian -- completely naked.

BBC Radio 1 thinks the controversial video is "weird as hell." In response, it made its own "SFW" (Safe for Music) version and got a group of celebs involved too. Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor and Nick Jonas are among the multitude of famous people featured. In this version, everyone is in bed together too, except they're fully clothed.

Music that sounds like it's from Kanye West's Famous is playing softly in the background of BBC Radio 1's parody. Unlike the original version, all the fully clothed celebrities are having comedic conversations with one another. The cinematography and production is also different. While Kanye West's version looks like it's a homemade amateur adult video recorded with a hand-held camera, BBC Radio 1's film is clear, crisp and rather wholesome in comparison.
