Add Will Ferrell to the list of Kanye West‘s favorite things.

The outspoken hip-hop star and now-avid tweeter declared Saturday morning that, with his work on Zoolander 2, Ferrell “has reached walking living breathing god status!”

West, 38, announced this upon a second viewing of the comedy sequel, which was released earlier this month to so-so reviews.

But, in West’s view, it featured a “Bruce Lee status” comedic performance from Ferrell, as the maniacally curled Mugatu.

“His existence is a blessing,” West tweeted Saturday morning, during his nine-tweet string about Zoolander 2.

“Perhaps it was seeing [Ferrell] play the same character from 15 years ago with 15 more years experience that showed how sharp and Bruce Lee status he is,” West wrote, adding, “We all know Will Ferrell has always been the one!!!”

“I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy,” West concluded.

It was not his only Zoolander compliment of the morning. West wrote, “also let’s shout out to the art direction … candy on the screens! It is so inspiring. Thank you for existing!”

Of course, this isn’t the first time West has shared his love for Ferrell. The rapper’s hit 2011 song with Jay Z, “N—– in Paris,” features a sample from Ferrell’s 2007 comedy Blades of Glory.
