Anyone who dreams of being as cool and successful as Kanye West now has the chance to be just that – well, sort of.

As part of the "In an Absolut World" ad campaign for Absolut vodka, West, 31, stars in a fake commercial for "Be Kanye" tablets.

"How many times have you told yourself, 'I feel famous and powerful on the inside, but nobody sees it that way on the outside'?" he asks in the clip. When added to water, the tablets (which last four hours, according to the package) will "unleash the superstar inside you."

Of course, West knows that being a celebrity isn't always easy. In a recent post on his blog, he fires back at a Chicago Sun-Times report that he is headed to anger management classes.

"I have never had any conversations about anger management. If anything, I need anger enhancement!! lol!"
