Everyone seemed to be into the joke except for Kim Kardashian.
Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video award at the MTV VMAs for "Blank Space," beating out Beyoncé's "7/11."
Kanye West once again stole the show -- as he did in 2009, when he memorably rushed the stage to tell Swift that "Single Ladies" was "one of the best videos of all time" -- but this time did so in a much more likable fashion.
Such a dad joke, and Kim Kardashian was not having it. Kanye's smile slowly drops as Kim just gives him no recognition for the ruse.
Then Kanye started fake-sleeping to seal the fact that he's the true winner of this year's VMAs.
