About

"I Love It" is a song by American rappers Lil Pump and Kanye West featuring American comedian Adele Givens. The video showcases Lil Pump and Kanye West following Adele Givens down a hallway dressed in suits that resemble Roblox characters. The video was widely parodied after its debut due to the costumes West and Lil Pump wear and several humorous comparisons and remix videos.

Origin

On September 7th, 2018, Lil Pump's official YouTube channel uploaded the music video for "I Love It" (shown below). The video premiered at the inaugural Pornhub Awards, of which Kanye West was creative director. The video begins with a soundbite from one of Adele Givens' Def Jam Comedy appearances. The song then begins depicting Pump and West walking down a hallway with women lining the sides like statues. They wear suits very similar to Roblox characters and West wears his Yeezy slides which were a subject of jokes due to them being oversized.


Spread

Jokes about the video and song spread quickly after the video dropped, as people reacted to it and compared the suits to Roblox and Minecraft characters. Twitter also began remixing the video with reaction GIFs and parody videos (examples shown below). For example, Twitter user @tactful remade the video making the rappers appear as though they were in Roblox, gaining 8,200 retweets and 28,000 likes (shown below, top). User @UnusualVideos made a Minecraft parody of the video, gaining over 8,900 retweets and 25,000 likes (shown below, bottom).
