Taking a break from harassing the man outside his home in the wee hours of the morning, TMZ have unearthed this clip of Kanye West in a pilot for a failed reality TV show from 2010. The series looked to spotlight Brett Goetsch, self-proclaimed “ultimate travel agent to the stars,” including Common, Keyshia Cole and, of course, Mr. West. Although that doesn’t exactly sound like too-good-to-miss TV, this segment is especially entertaining as Kanye shares his tips for avoiding “stupid” people at airports.

The pretend pissed off phone call is a classic.
