Aziz Ansari must have a really big man crush on Arnold Schwarzenegger (but really, who doesn’t?) because he basically cyber stalked the actor today, asking him to retweet him.
It all started when Aziz found out about a contest the actor is running to promote his new book. The Governator will create a custom voicemail each week for a special fan and Aziz wants to be that fan.
His endurance and dedication eventually paid off — probably resulting in an expression similar to the one above. He really proved to us that with a little hard work, anyone can achieve their dreams. Thanks Aziz!
Check out Aziz’ tweets below, starting with him casually inquiring about a prized RT to desperate attempts at bartering with comedy show tickets. Arnold finally responded — just like we knew he would.
Aziz Ansari has some amazing hip hop cred. Although the funny man may not be a rapper himself, he can name Jay-Z and Kanye West as his friends and has even appeared in their “Otis” music video.
His musical affiliations go a little deeper as someone had the brilliant idea of photoshopping Ansari’s face into famous rap albums on the Tumblr, Emceez Ansari. Some highlights are 50 Cent’s “Get Rich or Die Trying,” Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, LIl’ Wanye’s “Tha Carter IV” and R. Kelly’s “Double Up.”
I don’t know why but I can hear Ansari yell, “RAAAANNNNNDDDYYYY” in my mind every time I see a photo of him. You can practically hear it when you look at the “Get Rid of Die Trying” cover.
To celebrate Ryan Seacrest hitting 100 million views on YouTube, Justin Bieber helped him create the ultimate viral video, featuring dogs, babies and cheesy dancing. We also watch Aziz Ansari’s hilarious interview on Anderson Cooper’s show — or wait, that’s not Aziz Ansari! Finally, we watch golden video of two cats boxing.
Aziz Ansari pranked Anderson Cooper today by sending out his doppelganger in place of himself on Anderson’s talk show. Just after sitting down with his guest, Anderson looked suspicious, put on his glasses and furrowed his brows: “Who the hell are you?” he asked, “you’re not Aziz Ansari.”
An awkward couple of seconds pass before Aziz dashed on stage fashionably late to save the day. “I was running a little bit late so I had my look-a-like do the beginning of the interview. I hope he didn’t say anything racist while I was gone,” he joked. Ansari explained he has a bunch of minions who run around town and do multiple chores for him (but not really).
Even better, Ansari surprised Cooper with his very own look-a-like. Cooper is such a busy guy, holding down three jobs and all, so Ansari provided him with his very own look-a-like who wore a scarily similar shirt.

Looks like Aziz Ansari is pretty excited to watch the upcoming film “G.I Joe: Retaliation”. As the trailer was released online Tuesday, the comedian entertained his followers on Twitter to share his reactions.
With lines like: “WHAT?!! The President is the bad guy!! THE ROCK vs. THE PRESIDENT!! YES!!” and “Swords! Rock climbing! Ninjas! This shit is nuts y’allllll!!!”, it is safe to say that Ansari is hyped to see the movie.
Here is the order of his liveblogging:
Are you just as excited?
Be the judge and watch the trailer yourselves!
One thing traditional phone calls will always have over texting is that the conversation doesn’t get misinterpreted. Aziz Ansari laments about the perils of texting a girl, especially when he’s in a whip-fire fast conversation with a girl and then all of a sudden she conveniently stops texting when he asks her out for pizza. Awkward.
“What just happened? I know you just read that shit,” he says. “What did you chuck your phone into a locker and go ride a roller coaster for two hours?”
Unfortunately for the lack-a-texter Aziz will get so angry that he’ll disinvite you and go eat the pizza with people that are nicer to him, so there.
The clip is a preview from “Dangerously Delicious,” which you can download or stream for $5 online.

The Wanted prank call a fan on FreshPressLive. Brittany and Jordan talk about Ryan Gosling heroically saving a woman (he’s a godling) and 50 Cent doesn’t know what a grapefruit is.
You know him as the swagger parks department admin. Tom Haverford on the hit NBC show “Parks and Recreation”. Aziz Ansari has slowly become one of our most beloved funny men.
Aziz, who makes a cameo on Jay-Z and Kanye’s video for “Otis”, hooked up with his buddy Matthew Shawver to retell the rap duo’s song “N****s in Paris* using their iPhone emoticons. It’s incredibly clever and creative as it feeds more into the hysteria that is surrounding Jay and Kanye’s “Watch the Throne” album.
You can listen to the track and follow along with the lyrics Aziz and Matthew recreated, as featured on Buzzfeed.
