In a new promo with Kanye West  and Kim Kardashian, comedian Kevin Hart announces that he will be hosting MTV's upcoming Video Music Awards.
In the one-minute spot, Hart shares a hotel room with his famous friends, where he is prepping for his first outing after being named host of this year's VMAs.
Including himself as part of "the new 'it' couple," Hart suggests that the trio adopt the nickname "KevYeKim." (For their part, Kardashian and West have been widely referred to as "KimYe" in the media.)
After protests from the real-life couple, Hart has another, less politically correct suggestion -- a three-letter acronym using each of their first initials.
"You got a white hoodie?" he teases Kardashian.
Watch the promo above. The VMAs will air live from L.A.'s Staples Center on Thursday, Sept. 6.
