MTV has named comedian Kevin Hart as the host for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

Hart made the announcement by tweeting a hilarious commercial, starring himself, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as the new Hollywood “it” couple, “Kevkimye.”

It seems fans are happy with Hart as host.

We’ll see how Hart does as host when the VMAs air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 6.
