Although the socialite has long surpassed the scandal that once catapulted her into fame, the Kim Kardashian video with Ray J remains to be one of the most well-known examples of celebrity adult entertainment.

The business woman doesn't cower in the face of misogynistic shaming however, which, due to her ownership of it, is what makes the Kim Kardashian video of special importance. With this in mind, the 23-year-old Kaplan twins from Los Angeles, California, have used the Kim Kardashian video as the inspiration for their latest project dubbed 'Make Me Famous.'

In doing so, the artists hope that they're able to generate a conversation surrounding celebrity exploitation, while also supplying their viewers with work that's humorous and vividly speaks to contemporary pop culture. In addition to recreating screenshots taken from the Kim Kardashian video, the Kaplan twins paint sensual images of other celebrities as well as themselves.
